那天我們幾個鄰居茶聚，今次在 T 的家裏。她端出了一盤看來像心太軟的小巧克力蛋糕，你可以想像我們的尖叫聲。
她卻輕描淡寫地說：「這不是你們以為的 Chocolate Foundant，而是我兒子在做工的咖啡室那裏學得，每天都賣很多的小巧克力蛋糕。」
說實的，也真由衷替 T 感到滿足驕傲。她兒子自從 college 畢業後一直找不到適合的工作，覺得很洩氣。後來應徵這份見習餅師的職位，在一間家庭式但生意很好的咖啡西餅室那裏受訓。
結果是，入口鬆軟、滿是克巧力濃香的蛋糕，令我們愛不停口。自然，每人都向 T 取得食譜。第ニ天我趕不及照著做了，很心急讓老公嘗試。他含著滿滿的一口，給我豎起大姆指。
( 做 6 個布甸杯子份量 )
70% 可可成份的黑巧克力 200 g
無鹽牛油 125g 切粒
中號雞蛋 2 隻，加中號蛋黃兩隻
幼黃砂糖 golden caster sugar 100g
麵粉 plain flour 50g 過篩
布甸杯子 6 個
- 把 6 個布甸杯掃上牛油，底部放上一小方塊烘培紙，紙上也塗少許牛油。
- 預熱焗爐至 180 C / 350 F / Gas 4，把一個烤盤放進中層。
- 大碗內打入雞蛋和蛋黃，倒入砂糖，用手提打蛋器攪 2 分鐘或至膨漲 2 倍。加入麵粉拌勻。然後把巧克力溶液倒進，用膠刮小力全部拌勻。
- 把粉漿分別倒進布甸杯去。置焗爐的烤盤中烘 10 - 15 分鐘，至糕邊輕微收縮，用尖刀插入蛋糕抽出沒黏物便成。若黏著巧克力則沒問題。
- 取出待 1 分鐘過後，便反轉過來脫模， 洒上少許糖粉，置在已唧上焦糖漿，或雲尼那拖肥汁 toffee sauce 的碟上。配以雪糕便成。
Really mouthwatering! Love to try making them when I have time to shop for some metal pudding basins. I have some ceramic ramekins but I don't think they conduct heat as efficiently as the metal tins you used in this recipe. Thanks! LornaReplyDelete
Thank you! This recipe is so fault proof, can be presented elegantly at dinner or served as cakes for morning coffee or afternoon tea , can go with double cream, creme fraiche, Greek yogurt or ice-cream etc; really good to have as a safe dessert to make or for emergency :)
It brightens my day when I see a recipe come from you.ReplyDelete
Thanks, it's so nice of you to say that. Your kindness bring sunshine to my life :D
Hello Jane :)ReplyDelete
Sorry I didn't see you upload this post ~ I only saw it on facebook hehe but i'm so glad you've posted it! These are definitely my top of chocolate cake ~ Soft and moist :D I hate chocolate cakes that are dry and hard :( unfortunately those are most cakes you find at bakeries here in HK :(
I can't wait to try this recipe :D
Thanks for sharing!
Oh please don't worry about it, we're so very busy all the time, sometimes I go to yours so late too :) I know, I'm very fussy with chocolate cakes too. I don't like them too sweet, too sticky or too creamy!! This one I have to say, is amount my top 5 :D
Hope you carry on enjoying your extended stay and making the most of this unexpected treat. You deserved it ^.^
Dear Jane 妳好,ReplyDelete
我有一個關於房地產的問題想請教妳,是這樣的,由於害怕通貨膨脹所以我跟我先生想在 UK 買一間小公寓租學生,
保住老本,趁著此波英鎊與 UK 房價低點買進,但是由於我們並非住在UK,也沒有英國籍,我們只是想說英國體制健全,想交給 仲介代管,不知妳覺得英國的仲介是否有這樣的代管服務?不然住在台北的我們飛去 UK 一趟的成本太高,沒辦法每年飛去換約。是否可以請旅居UK 多年的妳給予我們一些妳的看法與建議?
I think I can give you a little advise on this topic.Delete
I am living in UK since 1997. I bought a small 3 bedroom house in London in 1996 and asked the property agent to have it rented out, they charged me 13% on the rental received plus 15% VAT on the commission they earned. As a management agent they charged me everything with min £20 handling charges eg to change a toilet seat which only cost £15 + £20 handling charges + VAT. However they managed to find a tenant and arranged tenancy agreement on my behalf.
I sold the house in London after I settled down in Milton Keynes in 1997. With that money; I bought another house in my area and asked the rental agent to find me a tenant and I do the mangement service myself. The agent charged me a one off payment of 1/2 month rental as their com. for finding the tenant for me, they completed the credit checking and setting up direct debits from the tenant and credit my a/c with the rental each month. So far I enjoy their service.
I do suggest to come round to the UK to buy the house instead of asking the agent to help in buying a house for you, afterall the money involved is not a small amount. Hope this info helps.
Thank you for offering your advice on the above matter for Mia, hope it gives her some sort of idea too.
