Ginger centred chocolate cake w. custard

Ok, back in the kitchen. Reckon this will be last chocolate dessert I’ll test… Think I’ve eaten too much chocolate this past month!! Ahh the hard work of being in the test kitchen. Drinking custard…

Recipe is from Masterchef.

Mini chocolate cake

¼ cup plain flour, sifted
1/3 cup icing sugar, sifted
¾ cup almond meal
80g butter, melted
60g dark chocolate, melted
2 eggs, separated, whites beaten to stiff peaks
pieces of crystalized ginger (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 150ºC.
  2. Combine the flour, icing sugar and almond meal in a bowl, make a well and pour in the butter and chocolate and mix until combined, carefully fold in the egg whites.
  3. Fill moulds/cups half way with the chocolate mixture, drop a piece of crystalized ginger in each and continue to fill to the top. Bake for 20 minutes.

Custard

500ml milk
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
4 egg yolks
125g caster sugar

Bring the milk and vanilla to the boil in a saucepan. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together in a bowl. Pour the milk into the egg mixture, whisking continuously, then pour the mixture back into the saucepan, place over a low-med heat and whisk continuously until thickened. Cool quickly.

You should try out this recipe! Worked for me!
