  • 5 whole eggs
  1. Preheat oven to 210°C.
  2. Break chocolate slab into smaller pieces and melt (in the microwave slowly for a few seconds).
  3. Add the softened butter to the melted chocolate and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add the sugar, baking flour and the eggs and mix again until you achieve a smooth texture (the eggs do not require to be beaten separately).

  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes to achieve a soft and smooth center.
This recipe is of a soft centered Chocolate cake (moelleux meaning soft and smooth in French) that comes from France. The first time I tried it, it was homemade in the countryside of France by my husband's family and it was simply delicious! I would like to share it as it is easy to make and it is a very nice cake to bake for the family. Submitted by: "The Liu Family"
