Made with love: Moelleux for Valentine’s Day

Hi guys!

Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤

“What should I make for Valentine’s Day?” I think that question went through my mind multiple times a day for the past weeks. Red things? Pink things? Red Velvet things? Heart shaped things? I had no idea! Inspiration enough but just no clue. I wanted something easy but delicious. Romantic, but not too much. And – of course – a crowd pleaser. PING! What do I love most? What do women love most? (Besides puppies and men with sixpacks…) Chocolate! Suddenly the idea for my Valentine’s Day recipe was born: Moelleux (aka Lava Cake)

How to:

Moelleux

  1. Melt the butter and the chocolate
  2. Mix together sugar, 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks untill fully combined
  3. Sift the flour and mix until the batter is smooth
  4. Add the melted butter-chocolate mixture and a pinch of salt
  5. Poor the batter in a piping bag and set aside in the fridge for about 2 hours. This will make our batter easier to handle when piping in the molds
  6. Preheat the oven at 200°C
  7. Fill the molds for 2/3th
  8. Bake for 8, max 9 minutes
  9. Dress your plate with raspberry coulis and a scoop of vanilla ice cream

Raspberry Coulis

  1. Put the frozen raspberries and the sugar in a saucepan on medium high.
  2. Once heated, let it sit for about 10 minutes.
  3. Sift the coulis before using so you don’t have too many seeds
