I always make this desert for special dinners. It is easy to make, it can be made a day ahead and it is really a crowd pleaser.

Adapted recipe from (Dutch) Delicious.

The original recipe says that these quantities are enough for 4 people, but you can fill more ramekins with the batter. It obviously depends on how big your ramekins are and how full you fill them, but this recipe is enough for at least 8 people.

Cake:
125 g butter
125 g dark chocolate
2 egg yolks
2 eggs
50 g sugar
50 g flour

White chocolate-lime filling:
200 g white chocolate
50 ml lime juice

For the filling: melt the chocolate in the microwave or au bain marie. Stir in the lime juice. Sometimes it will curdle or the chocolate becomes hard too fast. If I stir in all the juice and mix well, with me it always ends well. Pour this mixture into a container with the mixture about 2cm high and put it in the fridge.

For the cake: melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave or au bain marie. Stir in the sugar, the egg yolks and the eggs and mix well. Pour this mixture into the chocolate mixture. Stir gently the flour into the mixture.

When the white chocolate has hardened, cut it in large flat dice.
Fill ramekins or cake tins for 1/3 with the cake batter, push a piece of the white chocolate into the chocolate mixture, but don’t push it too deep. Fill ramekins with the cake batter, to about 1-1,5 cm below the rim.

This can all be prepared in advance.

Preheat the oven to 180˚C.

Bake them for approximately 14 minutes. The top of the moelleux need to feel firm to the touch, but they’ll still look like it’s soft and not done yet. Take them out of the oven and let them rest for 2 minutes. Take them out of the ramekins by inverting them onto  plates.
