Mini Chocolate Cake

Used the ramekins to make this tiny cake. I ran out of all purpose flour so used 2 T of bread flour. It came out a little dense. Maybe more lemon juice with the milk next time. This is the perfect recipe for when you are in the mood for a little chocolate cake but don't want to have leftovers to be eating it all week.
  • 1/4 c + 2 T all-purpose flour
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 1/8 t baking soda
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 T buttermilk (or milk + lemon juice)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 3 T salted butter, melted and cooled (or unsalted + 1/8 t salt)
  1. Sift the flour, cocoa and soda in a medium bowl. Stir in the sugar.
  2. In a small bowl, use a fork to combine buttermilk, egg and vanilla.
  3. Pour in cooled butter, beating with fork the whole time.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir just until flour is incorporated.
  5. Divide evenly into two greased ramekins. Spread batter evenly by rotating dish.
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes at 170C or until fork comes out clean.
  7. Let cool 5-10 minutes.
  8. Invert onto plate and serve as desired.
Serve with custard filling, frosting, fruit or plain.
