Molten Chocolate Whiskey Cake

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 oz chocolate baking bar, 60% bittersweet
  • 1 cup butter, unsalted
  • 3/4 tsp iodized salt
  • 3 tbsp whiskey
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp  fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp orange zest
  • 4 eggs plus 2 yolks
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large microwave safe bowl, microwave butter and chocolate for 1 minute or until melted – being careful not to burn the chocolate.
  3. Whisk in the salt, whiskey, vanilla, powdered sugar, ginger, cayenne, pepper, and orange zest.
  4. Whisk in eggs and yolks, one at a time.
  5. Whisk in flour just until combined.
  6. Divide batter into 8 greased ramekins. Place on baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 13 minutes or until the sides are set. The middle will have a slight sag to it, but don’t worry that’s the molten filling.
  8. Remove from the oven and let stand for 60 seconds.
  9. Loosen edges with a knife and invert onto dessert plates.
