WARM MOLTEN CHOCOLATE CAKES WITH FRESH BERRIES
PREP time: 10 minutes
Grill time: 10-14 minutes
6½ tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
4 ounces top-quality bittersweet chocolate
2 large eggs
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
½ cup cold whipped cream
1 cup fresh raspberries
12-well muffin pan
Using ½ tablespoon of the butter, grease the four cups down the center of a 12-well muffin pan.
In a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, melt the chocolate and the remaining 6 tablespoons butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. In another bowl whisk the eggs and the sugar until light and fluffy, about 20 seconds. Add the warm chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and mix until smooth. Then add the flour and mix until you no longer see specks of flour.
Fill the four greased cups with the batter (almost to the top rim, but not all the way). If not ready to cook, refrigerate for as long as 3 hours.
Prepare the grill for indirect cooking over medium heat (ideally 400°F).
Place the muffin pan over indirect medium heat and bake, with the lid closed, until the cake tops no longer jiggle when you shake the pan, about 10 minutes (or as long as 14 minutes if the batter has been refrigerated). Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
Run a knife around the outer rim of each cake to make sure it is not stuck to the pan. On top of the muffin pan place a cutting board or a platter that is slightly larger than the pan. Holding the pan and cutting board together, invert them so that the cakes fall out of the pan. Serve immediately with whipped cream and raspberries.
Each muffin cup in the pan should measure 2¾ inches in diameter by 1¼ inches high, and each should hold 4 ounces by volume.
