Dessert Carnival

Well there is a party going on right here now…a celebration of good eats!
To join the rest of the Dessert Carnival just click here!

This is my favorite dessert to serve for a special occasion. It tastes and looks fancy, but what I love about this dessert is that I can throw it together, pop it in the oven and serve it up hot for my guests right after dinner.

A disclaimer for my old timer readers. I have posted this before. But it is so good that on behalf of Cielo Carnival I thought it deserved a redo post!


Trust me on this one!
You need just five simple ingredients in your pantry.

Served with a simple scoop of your very favorite vanilla ice-cream and this does deserve the best. Use some elegant little spoons, because you want to slowly savor each little delicious chocolate laden spoonful. Warm, chocolate, rich and gooey! Kind of like a hot fudge cake, but better! Crispy on the edges, molten chocolate on the inside.

Recipe by Nigella Lawson:

Melt: over a double boiler gently, ¾ cups of semi sweet choc chips and 1 stick of soft butter (keep and eye on it, stirring) than set aside to cool

Mix: with a beater, 2 eggs, ¾ cup of sugar, 3 Tlb. of flour, I add the flour at the end

Than slowly add cooled chocolate mixture. Pour into 4 ramekins

Bake 400 for 20 minutes.

I double the recipe easily and can make smaller servings, just cut down on your baking time a little. I have served this 3x now, and I have decided 3x makes it a charm for sure.

I am a Chocoholic. I keep Hershey Kisses in the sideboard for my frequent urges. This post has done nothing to help me.

Hi there thanks for your visit to my blog. I so enjoyed my peek at yours. . oh the cotswolds pictures are just gorgeous and your dessert today has left me dying for chocolate.
About my sidebar. Go into draftblogger .. (from the dashboard) and then once you are in the draft blogger look for the blog list. The instructions were all there. Instead of having page elements, you will have gadgets and the gadget is easy to use once your in. Good luck.
