Yes, I’m a chocolate person. Get used to it.
But think about it. Chocolate gooeyness that tastes like fudge, contrasted with whipped cream.
I’m thinking about it. Definitely. You should too.
SERVES: About twelve people
TIME: 20 minutes prep, 20 minutes cook
2 sticks butter
4 cups chocolate chips
¼ cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup rice flour
Grease a 9 by 13 inch glass pan. You could also use a spring form cake pan to make this as a cake (though the consistency is more like brownies). To make this a slightly “fancier” dessert, grease ten ramekins. If you are using the ramekins, you’ll want to cook it for five minutes less, which will give it the consistency of melted fudge (who wouldn’t want that?).
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a double boiler (double boilers and how they are used), melt the butter and chocolate chips. Stir often so that the chocolate chips don’t burn.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together until the mix is fairly light in color (this will take about three minutes). Once the eggs and sugar are blended, add the melted butter and chocolate chips. Beat until thoroughly combined.
Add the vanilla extract, rice flour, and salt. Beat until thoroughly combined.
Pour the mix into the 9 by 13 inch glass pan (or the sprinform cake pan). If using ramekins, spoon an even amount into each dish. Each dish will probably only be about half full, which is about right because this is a very rich dessert.
Place the pan (or ramekins) in the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes. As I said earlier, if you are using ramekins you’ll only want to cook them for about 17 minutes. If using a 9 by 13 inch glass pan, cook for 20 minutes. If you’re using a spring form cake pan, you’ll want to cook for around 25 minutes.
Remove from oven when cooked, and allow to cool for about fifteen minutes before serving. You can also eat it cold just as well.
As you can see in the pictures, I served it with whipped cream. However, it would also be delish with ice cream melting in (I can taste it already). If you used the ramekin dishes and are going for something a little fancier, I’d do whipped cream or ice cream with chocolate drizzle on top, and maybe a few fresh raspberries to make it look pretty. But it doesn’t really matter whether you eat this plain or with something on top—It’s still yummy.
