French Fridays: Individual Chocolate Cakes with dulce de leche and fleur de sel from My Paris Kitchen

David Lebovitz's Individual Chocolate Cakes with Dulce de Leche and Fleur de Sel from My Paris Kitchen on eatlivetravelwrite.comIt’s been what you might call “a week” (actually it’s been a bit of “a year”) over here. My copyedited manuscript changes are on my editor’s desk though (hurrah!) and I’m ready to try to catch up with the rest of my life now (it’s amazing how many things pile up on your “to do” list when you step away from it for a few weeks…). In the middle of all that flurry of activity, I was pleased to be able to keep on top of my  Cook the Book Fridays recipes from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen. Especially this one.

It’s a simply molten chocolate cake with a hidden base of dulce de leche (or caramel sauce). These came together in a flash (in one bowl, no less – my kinda dessert!) and only takes about 15 minutes to cook (the kind of dessert you can make when you have a chocolate craving and want to satisfy it like, now!). I left these in the oven 3 minutes longer because I don’t like the centres *too* molten and they were perfect (it was still lovely and gooey under the just baked crust). They were good the day I made them but didn’t fare too badly in the microwave the next day (15 seconds) which is good to know. Dangerously good to know…

David Lebovitz's Individual Chocolate Cakes with Dulce de Leche and Fleur de Sel on eatlivetravelwrite.comUm, I’ll be making these again. Probably soon.

    I like the way the chocolate reaches the top of the ramekin and spills over the edge. Great effect!

      It’s actually the sauce that spilled over – not an effect, just ramekins filled a little too full LOL!

    I could take your post and copy to my blog because what you said about this decadently delicious dessert is exactly what I said. This was easy to put together, one bowl only. My sauce spilled over also which I thought was kinda pretty. I just overdid the dulce de leche because I like the taste. I cannot imagine the energy and work that it takes to put together a cookbook. Good for you.

      I’m now wondering if there are other sauces we could use in the cakes… 😉

    Not only were they pretty darn good, it took not time at all to make. Perfect if you get a craving for something chocolate and decadent.

    Haha, we ate ours over 2-3 days as well. Both heated slightly and room temperature. Not bad at all and sort of necessary, what with how rich they are!

    As for your cookbook, congrats! Any big writing project for me ends with a love-hate relationship with wanting it done (please oh please) but not wanting your baby to be out there before its ready.

      These are rich but definitely a “worth the calories” treat 🙂
