Baked Chocolate Fudge For Two

Baked chocolate fudge for two is the best way to end a romantic evening, topped with vanilla ice cream and bursting with chocolate is one of the best dessert I ever had!

Baked Chocolate Fudge

Baked fudge in all of its gooey chocolate glory has been downsized to just two servings, yeah! no second helpings at all....and easy way to satisfy my chocolate craving.

Its not a brownie and definitely not a cake......it lies somewhere between both! 

The plus point for desserts for two.....is that you have the whole serving for yourself.....and you are not expected to share...well, I am a bit selfish with my chocolate desserts.

Downsizing is my latest fad, atleast when I am on a diet.....and weekend dessert binges can wreak havoc on my diets, so downsizing desserts works well.....and the plus point is no leftovers.

I made this baked fudge for just the two of us! It was perfect!


This dessert can be doubled or even tripled. The beauty of this baked fudge is that it has a crusty top with a sort of gooey chocolately interior....and it was so YUM!

You really do not need to wait for Valentines day to make this special dessert....a weekend would be perfect! Bachelors are you listening?

Salt a big fat pinch.

Method:
Melt butter and keep aside.
Line two ramekins and keep aside. Preheat oven to 180 degree C.
Beat the eggs until light in color.

 Add half cup sugar and beat until combined.

Add in 1 heaped tbsp cocoa powder, 1 tbsp leveled flour, salt, vanilla, and melted butter.

Mix gently, until combined. Pour into greased ramekins. Place them in another large pan half way full of water....and bake them for 30- 40 min or until upper crust is crispy and the rest of the batter is firm but not fully set.

I served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Baked Fudge For Two

Some tips:
If you feel it has not set well, nothing to worry just pop them right back into the oven for another 10 min or so.
This does not rise, so I never have any qualms pouring the batter to almost the brim.
You can also bake in a mason jar; just make sure that it is of high quality and it can withstand the heat. One of the best ways to gift baked fudge.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe : Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style  Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry" Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes. Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style. Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs. The

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented Steamed   Rice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil . It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.  "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
