Let Your LOVE Flow this Valentine’s Day with This Yummy, Fudgy Treat
This Valentine’s Day treat your sweetie to a delicious, rich, dense and fudgy individual cake.
A chocolate treat that has a warm, gooey, flowing chocolate-peanut butter center. Who can resist this?
This is an easy recipe, and will teach you the principles of a soufflé cake – egg whites are whipped to soft peaks and folded in before baking. Rich chocolate-peanut butter truffles are made ahead of time, and when firm are dropped in the batter for a molten, oozing center. (PS: they are fabulous truffles by themselves!)
I have reduced the fat and sugar content, adding extra bittersweet chocolate for texture and dense flavor.
Gluten-free? No problem! There is only a small amount of flour here, 1/3 cup – substitute all purpose gluten-free flour blend for amazing results.
Cooking properly in a water bath is important for the consistency… do not overcook – just until the cake has set. Making ahead of time? Undercook a bit, then reheat and let the lovely center flow. Alternately, prepare the cakes and refrigerate until ready to bake. Place on your countertop for at least a half an hour to take out the chill, then pop in a hot oven and serve immediately.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Make it a sweet one.
