Baked Fudge

It seems like the year just came fleeting by and September is almost over. Now we are into October already. Where has the time all gone?

To end off my last bake/cook with Cook like a Star September 2013, I decided to make something with chocolate. To many that I know, chocolate is always what comes to mind when the word 'dessert' is spoken :) For me, it does too although there are times when I would love something light and tangy.

Without further ado, this recipe from Pioneer Woman is something that I have been eyeballing for sometime. For the simple reason that it is something really easy and need not take you the whole day cleaning the kitchen or oven or anything like that. Perfect for that lazy day when you need a dessert ;)

This recipe is baked via a bain marie method. Do remember that this recipe will yield only 4 portions so do multiply accordingly. See my modifications in blue.

Ingredients:

  • 2 whole eggs
  • 225g 200g sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (heaping) cocoa powder
  • 15g plain flour
  • 113g salted butter, Melted (cooled)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 to 325 degrees farenheit 160 degrees celsius.
  2. Beat eggs until the mixture is pale in colour. 
  3. Beat in sugar until just combined. 
  4. Add cocoa powder, flour, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix gently until well combined.
  5. Pour batter into four large ramekins or one 8-inch square baking dish. Set ramekins or pan into a larger pan halfway full of water.
  6. Bake 40 to 50 minutes 30 minutes, or until upper crust is crispy and the rest of the batter is firm but not set. Toothpick should come out…not clean, but mixture should not be overly runny. If you pull it out of the oven and have second thoughts, stick it back in for ten more minutes.
  7. Serve with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream; whatever makes your skirt fly up.
Before baking - bain marie (smaller cake pan in big tray filled with water)


I realised that the fudge was baked a tad too long and it was because I was preparing cookie batter to be stored. Yes, I was bummed about it. Next time I bake this, I will reduce this to 20 or 25 minutes. But nevertheless, the baked fudge was yummily chocolate!! What a great way to end the weekend YAY!! But that also means it's going to be the start of a new work week again Boo!! :(
