What did I just make?

  • k

I had a hankering for some chocolate. I'm trying to keep it out of my house right now but alas...

I took about 1/2 a cup of Ghiradelli cocoa mix, 3 tablespoons of lowfat sour cream, tablespoons or two of milk and one beaten egg, mixed and microwaved for a total of 2 minutes. The outside is sorta souffle-y, the middle is like a molten cake. What in the world did I do? Is there a name for this yummy mess? I don't think I've ever seen sour cream and egg in a flourless chocolate torte - or am i looking at the wrong recipes?

  1. I guess it's a kind of custard.

      Sounds like stoner delight to me ; )

      I've seen sour cream in chocolate layer cake recipes, but not in flourless ones. But who cares, as long as it tastes good?

      1. I'm guessing you just made yourself very happy.

        1. Chocolate cream? Check out the Vanilla and Chocolate Cappucino cream recipe below.

          You forgot the rum. :)

          1. Chocolate custard cream?

            I had the same hankering this morning - so melted 25g valrohna bittersweet chocolate with a teaspoon of thick cream and half a cup of milk. Heated till bubbling and thick and then served in a shallow tea cup and dipped a pain au chocolate in.

            Rich, ultra chocolatey and completely delicious - I can't believe I haven tried that before - thats my fix sorted for a wee while :-)
