Mi-cuit au chocolat with Raspberries (!)

Mi-cuit au chocolat with Raspberries (!)

Simply by adding few raspberries to the batter and serving it in a ceramic or glass dish you can transform the classical mi-cuit au chocolat into a more elegant dessert.


Batter for 2 portions:
♥  70g black chocolate (70%)
♥  30g butter
♥  1 egg
♥  20g sugar
♥  1 pinch of salt
♥  fresh raspberries

Edit: I have removed the flour from this recipe because I kept forgetting to add it! But actually this makes them even better: less cake-like and more “melting in the mouth”.

Preparation time: 15min (baking included!)

1. Melt the chocolate with butter (in a saucepan or in a microwave). Whisk the egg with sugar and salt. Add the egg mixture to the melted chocolate, and stir it all together.

2. Pour the chocolate batter into ceramic oven dishes and stick 3-4 raspberries in each chocolate cupcake. Bake at 180’C in a preheated oven for around 10min (shorter baking = more creamy inside!).

  • Very interesting!
    Can I ask what kind of flour you used? I’d like to try but i’m new to the bakery .Thanks

    • The simple all purpose flour. You just need 1 tablespoon. The batter will be liquid. But as it is made of egg, the heat will make it done. Please, let me know how did it worked for you! I’m sure it will be delicious 🙂

    • Depending on the size of your muffin forms it should be enough for 2 portions. If you do 3, reduce the baking time to 8min!

    • 🙂 I’m really happy it worked well! All my friends also love it 🙂 The Mi-cuit in oranges is also very good. Cheers!

  • do 15g equal to 3 teaspoons ?… and do i just set the oven to preheat in 180 degrees its because i dont know what degrees the oven preheats on… what i mean is ,is it the same in any oven? so if i just set my oven in 180 degrees it should work…?

    • Dear K,
      15g of flour is about 1 tablespoon.
      Leave your oven to preheat to (about) 180’C while you prepare the batter. I have a very simple, cheap oven and it takes few minutes (not more than 10min!)
      Best, M.

  • I have made this twice now – both times my guests paid me loads of compliments on such a delicious and beautiful-looking dessert! And yet it’s one of the easiest recipes ever. I’ll be using this recipe many times to come! Thanks!

    • I’m really happy to hear that! It is also one of my favorite recipes. 🙂 I usually prepare it in front of my guests and nobody can believe how quick and simple it is 🙂
