Chocolate Pudding in Ramekins

我一直很想买一些小ramekins, 主要是觉得它们小巧玲珑具有非常令人怜爱的气质, 而且偶尔用来烤个chocolate lava cake什么的端上桌感觉比戴着墨镜去starbucks点一杯cappuccino什么的更小资, 得多.
但是在我看来这些陶瓷小圆筒碗都很贵, 并且考虑到一年可能也用不到一次所以一直没买.

结果昨天买菜正好碰到店里一批BIA Cordon Bleu(写全名显得比较高大上所以必须不能只写碗底印的BIA)的小ramekins在on clearance, 非常精致可爱, 一个两刀.
我挣扎了半个小时, 一再劝说自己马上就要走人了不要买更多最后还得处理掉的东西给自己找麻烦. 但是终于还是无法抗拒地买了4个.
当时只剩下几个苹果绿的, 两个鹅黄的和一批土灰色的了. 我非常想买苹果绿和鹅黄的(好漂亮的!), 可惜鹅黄色的边缘有点chip了, 我只好流着眼泪妥协接受了两个土灰色的.

今天搜了半天想找一个最简单快捷的方子用我的新ramekin来烤, 找到了Nigella的Gooey chocolate pudding. 跟chocolate lava/molten cake其实很像, 就是步骤更简略.

Total Time: 22 min
Prep: 10 min
Cook: 12 min
Yield: 4 servings

4 1/2 ounces best-quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
3 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Italian 00 or all-purpose flour

Before you’ve even taken your coat off, put the chocolate and butter in the top of a double boiler above simmering water. Whisk every now and again until melted. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, and flour until just blended. Gradually whisk in the melted chocolate mixture. Set aside.

Grease 4 (1-cup) ramekins with butter and add flour to cover the butter, tapping the ramekins to get rid of excess. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F about half an hour before you want to eat the puddings. And I’d leave cooking them until you’ve finished the main course. It doesn’t matter if there’s no food on the table for 10 minutes; and these do have to be done at the last minute.

So, pour the mixture into the ramekins and put them on a baking sheet in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until the tops are firm and cracking slightly and the edges set. Serve immediately and consider providing a pitcher of cold, cold cream for people to pour into their pudding’s hotly deliquescing interior as they eat.

我买的是6oz的ramekin, 所以按比例应该用料都scale成原recipe的3/4.
不过我measure得比较潦草, 而且因为用的是semi-sweet的巧克力, 没有按蛋疼的9/16cup来放糖而是只加了1/4 cup的糖粉. 另外因为是烤巧克力蛋糕, 例行公事地加了一小勺咖啡粉. 还放了一小撮盐在batter里.
最后烤了12分钟, 虽然还不错吃, 但是心子里已经快要凝结, 不是太gooey了好悲伤. 下次一定要少烤个一两分钟.

总之是心爱的小ramekin的第一次成果, 必须上图.
