Midsummer Night’s Dinner: Fallen Chocolate Cakes

image

by Heather Harris Brady

These cakes are somewhere between a cake and a fudge, barely set, deep dark and delicious. You can throw them together in five minutes while the ribs are on the grill and have them warm for dessert. They are gluten free as well!

Fallen Chocolate Cakes, Two Generous Servings or Four One-Cup Ramekins

4 T. butter

1/2 c. sugar

2 T. dark cocoa or 3 oz. bittersweet chocolate

1 egg

1 t. vanilla

1/2 c. almond flour

1/2 t. baking powder

image

Melt the butter and combine it with the sugar and cocoa. Beat in the egg and vanilla.

image

Stir in the almond flour.

image

Preheat the oven to 375 and divide the batter between greased ramekins.

image

Bake for 15 minutes. The cakes will rise to the top and fall as they cool.

Serve warm with fresh cold fruit. The cake is too rich for vanilla ice cream, but the cold fruit balances it out. I used strawberries but raspberries would be equally delicious.
