I made gluten-free molten chocolate cupcake this weekend. The recipe calls for wheat, but I substituted gluten free flour instead. It was absolutely delicious!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 (4 ounces) 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
5 large eggs or 4 extra large, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
4 teaspoons gluten-free or all-purpose flour
10-12 foiled, baking cups
Place butter and chocolate in a mixing bowl and place over a pot of simmering boiling water on low heat. Don’t let the bowl touch the boiling water otherwise; you will cook the chocolate instead of melting it. Stir constantly. Remove from heat when chocolate is almost completely melted and let sit for 10 minutes to cool.
Have a hand or standing mixer ready, to mix the chocolate mixture–add one egg at a time to the chocolate mixture, sugar, vanilla, and salt and beat until well blended. Add flour and mix until just combined. Allow mixture to sit for 10 minutes, before baking. Or cover bowl with plastic wrap and transfer to refrigerator until ready to bake cupcakes and bake within 48 hours.
Remove from refrigerator about a half hour before baking to take the chill off. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a standard-size muffin tin with 10-12 foil baking cups. Spray baking cups lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Divide batter among cups (or fill to the top of cups.)
Bake until batter puffs but center is not set, 8 to 10 minutes. I baked for 11 mins. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5-10 minutes, As cupcakes cool the center will collapse. Carefully lift cakes from cupcake pan, pull foil cups away from cakes and transfer cakes to dessert plates and garnish with raspberries and ice cream.
Any uneaten cupcake can be stored in a container in the refrigerator, remove tin foil and then reheat for 10-12 seconds in the microwave to soften chocolate.
