Chocolate Mi-cuit with a liquid heart

Always more chocolate... mi-cuits are fondant cupcakes. The inside is partially cooked but the outside has a small crust of regular chocolate cake because the oven is really hot when you put it in. 
It's really tasty (only chocolate !) original and quick to make !

Some recipes have a flavoured heart (white chocolate, caramel etc.)

You can make them in different kind of molds, muffins, cupcakes, metallic, silicone...

For 6 to 8 muffins molds (depending on their size))

   Il vous faut :   
4tbsp of salted butter (2.1 oz / 60 gr) 
4.4oz of dark chocolate (125gr) around 70%
2 eggs
1.4 oz of brown sugar (40 gr)
1.4 oz of white sugar (40gr) 
1 hint of salt
0.8 oz of flour (1tbsp / 25gr)

Turn the oven on at 500°F

Melt the chocolate and the butter in a small casserole on low fire

Beat eggs and sugars in a bowl with a fork or a whisk for 1 minute, until it's foamy.

As soon as the chocolate has melted, add it to the eggs and sugar, blend

Pour the flour and the salt and mix it from the center

When the dough is shiny and smooth, fill up your molds at 3/4 and put in the oven

Let them 6 to 7 minutes if they are metallic ones
9 minutes if they are silicone's mold

The top of the cake may seem soft, but if it's broken, it may be too cooked (depends on the size of your mold)
Wait for 3 to 4 minutes before turning out the mi-cuit, if the tops gets a bit flatter it's a good sign.

Serve with a creme anglaise or fruits :)
