Chocolate moelleux and cream cheese

That’s it, I’m entering the last year of my twenties. We believe that it only happens to others, and then one day, it falls on you. For my birthday and for this sunny day, I made a chocolate cake that kills everything, and for which I will have to run several kilometers before eliminating it …


Ingredients (serves 2 people)

For the chocolate biscuit

  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 75g salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • One egg

For the cream cheese

  • 100g Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 50g milk chocolate
  • 2 tbsp of sugar

Preparing the chocolate moelleux base

Melt the chocolate.

Soften the butter and mix with the sugar until it becomes a paste. Add the flour and the egg.  Mix well to get a smooth paste.

Add the chocolate and mix.

Butter small individual moulds or metal circles. Don’t fill them too much. The cake shouldn’t be too thick, as there are going to be 2 layers of it.

Place in the oven for 12 minutes at 170°C. (350°F)

While waiting, prepare the cream cheese.

Mix the Philadelphia and the sugar, the heavy whipping cream and the chocolate, broken into small pieces. Place in the fridge.

Once the chocolate cakes are cooked, take them out of the oven and leave to cool.

Put your cake together

Take a chocolate moelleux and spread a layer of the cream on it. Place a second cake on top.

You’ve got a gourmet chocolate cake right there…
