Moelleux au Chocolate is french for chocolate cake. This recipe is from a friend of mine, Lucinda of I-Lost in Austen who’s a fantastic baker, gardener and mom.. She assured me that I’d love how easy and delish it’s going to be.. It was everything as she said.. 😀


  • 125 g dark chocolate plus 60 g extra
  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs plus 2 egg yolks
  • 50 g sugar (I used 30 g sugarcane sugar)
  • 50 g flour

  1. Preheat oven to 200C. Grease muffin tin or line muffin tin with cupcake papers.
  2. Melt butter and 125 g chocolate au-bain-marie.
  3. Whisk eggs (plus yolks) with sugar. Add in flour and melted chocolate. Stir well.
  4. Pour batter into muffin tin till half full. Insert a little piece of chocolate into centre of batter and add batter on top till almost full.
  5. Bake for 12 mins. Serve warm with a big scoop of ice cream.  (I had mine with a dollop of coconut ice cream.)

It was seriously yummy. Lucinda informed me that I could insert a teaspoonful of raspberry melt instead of a piece of chocolate, so I’m going to try that the next time I make cupcakes.. This is a recipe to keep and treasure..
