1 pound fine-quality chocolate, for instance Valrhona
1/2 cup sugar
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
5 egg yolks
3 entire eggs
three sticks unsalted butter, softened
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Utilizing a box grater or perhaps a sharp knife, chop the chocolates into tiny pieces. Place the chopped chocolates in a double boiler, or inside a bowl, placed over barely simmering water. Melt the cacao slowly until smooth, stirring occasionally.
Inside a separate bowl, mix the sugar, flour, egg yolks and eggs. Whisk to combine entirely.
When the chocolates is fully melted, remove it from the heat and stir in the softened butter. Combine the chocolate-butter mixture with the egg mixture, stirring to incorporate.
Spray a standard-size muffin tin or perhaps a 9-inch cake pan with a light coating of nonstick spray.
If generating individual cakes, use a small ladle to fill every muffin cup 3/4 full (the cake will puff up)! Bake for 12 minutes, or until the edges from the cakes pull away from the pan.
If creating a 9-inch cake, scrape all the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until eventually the sides from the cake pull away from the pan.
The top of the cake need to be dry when carried out, but in the event you serve it warm, the center will still be moist with molten cacao. Budino may possibly be rewarmed briefly in oven before serving.
Might be served with vanilla-bean ice cream or with gelato of choice. For a more elegant presentation, pair budino with fresh cream and raspberries (or strawberries) or with thin, bias-cut slices of caramelized banana.
