Coulant de chocolate

Hola hola!!

The countdown to Christmas is here. I recently returned to Spain to celebrate the holidays with my family. It’s great to be back, but I would skip the 8 hour plane ride if I could… It’s not that bad though. I do enjoy flying and it goes by fast enough that I barely sleep. I really look forward to seeing all of my family. Let’s see if I can cook with my grandma and post some recipes.

I apologize If I don’t post for a while, but I’m not sure how much time I’ll have. I will do my best. If you are on Facebook or Instagram, I will definitely post some local and traditional Spanish food there.

For today, I made something very “chocolatey”. It is called Coulant de Chocolate. I used to make it a lot back in college with one of my friends. The beauty of this dessert is that you can freeze them, and whenever you have a craving for chocolate, you can just pop them in the oven for 15 minutes. I would describe this dessert as a mini chocolate cake with melted chocolate inside. Trust me, its super delicious.

Ingredients for 4-5 coulants (depending on the size of the mold or ramekin that you use). 

3 eggs at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter
5 ounces or 3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon cocoa
1/3 cup flour
1 pinch salt
Melt the chocolate. Once the chocolate is melted add the butter, stir until melted. Set aside and let it cool down.

Meanwhile, mix the flour and the cocoa in a bowl. Set aside.

Whisk the eggs and slowly add the sugar. Then slowly, add the melted chocolate into the egg mixture. When incorporated, add the flour and cocoa mixture. Finally, add the pinch of salt.

Pour the mixture into the molds and put them into the freezer. Leave them there for at least 2 hours or… for a month!

out of the oven

Bake them at 390F for 15 minutes.

Bon profit y felices fiestas! (happy holidays!)

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at Bon profit!
