Comfort food..

Look what I found, a warm chocolate and caramel cake recipe from Country Living. A perfect companion to spend the evening=) Look at the picture below..isn't it such a sweet indulgence? Yuummm

Ingredients:

  • Butter, softened
  • 1 jar(s) good-quality caramel sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) sifted cake flour
  • 1/3 cup(s) Dutch-process cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1 cup(s) sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 cup(s) strong brewed coffee, warm
  • 1/3 cup(s) light olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon(s) aged balsamic vinegar

Directions:

  1. Generously coat six 6-ounce ramekins with softened butter. Chill in the freezer for about 10 minutes, and brush with a second coat of butter. Pour 3 tablespoons caramel sauce into the bottom of each ramekin and transfer to the freezer for 1 hour.
  2. Whisk the cake flour, cocoa, baking soda, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl and set aside. Stir the coffee, oil, vanilla, and vinegar together and whisk into the flour mixture just until smooth.
  3. Fill each ramekin with 1/3 cup of batter. Bake at 400 degrees F until the cake is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, and the caramel has bubbled up the sides, about 20 minutes.
