This splurge dessert is the kind you just have to linger over. Plunge your fork into one of the cakes and the chocolate and conversation start flowing.—Deb Carpenter, Hastings, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dry red wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 teaspoons egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Additional confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a microwave, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in wine and vanilla.
  • 2. In a small bowl, beat the egg, egg yolk and confectioners' sugar until thick and lemon-colored. Beat in the flour, ginger and cinnamon until well blended. Gradually beat in butter mixture.
  • 3. Transfer to two greased 6-oz. ramekins or custard cups. Place ramekins on a baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until a thermometer inserted near the center reads 160° and sides of cakes are set.
