Tuesdays With Dorie – Soft Centered Chocolate Teacup Cakes


Oh hey. A dessert I didn’t break. I think I have ended the streak!

You guys. These are amazing. Luscious, chocolatey, decadent… these are just a few words I might use to describe these little cups of joy. I only wish there were more! I do so love melted chocolate though… am I alone in this?

I thought I might get cute and add a truffle in each, but I had a rather frustrating grocery store excursion in general, and just decided to use two pieces of Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate instead (which certainly turned out more than ok). I did go the extra step of sugaring the cups which I loved the consistency of… that little extra crunch.

Another benefit to these is that they are super easy to make. I had originally considered making the batter ahead, but wasn’t sure how that would affect the outcome (if anyone tried this I would love to hear your experience). Nevertheless the whole thing took such a short amount of time using basic pantry staples that it really isn’t necessary to make the batter ahead; you could easily make these in a pinch and still impress anyone. I hope everyone enjoyed these as much as we did!

    I agree, these were delicious – too good to have around or I’d eat them all. (I only made one for that reason.)

  2. You are so right about that you could make these in a pinch and be able to impress with these little cups of joy. I’m adding this recipe to my list of impromptu desserts. Adding truffle? Amazing!

    These were definitely luscious and decadent and I’m wishing now that I had sugared the cups for that added texture.

  9. I know, surprisingly quick to throw together! Yours looks great, and next time I’m so going to do what you did and add in that sugar. Yum!

  10. These were soooo delicious and so quick and easy!
    I made 4 but not good when we are a family of 5!
