Shame on me. You'd have a picture of this delightful little quick cake, but I ate it before I could post it.
And yes, I prepared this dessert during a commercial break, then intercepted it from the oven during a second commercial break. By third break...cocoa comatose.
I'll put a single serving recipe below. But here's the gist: Melt the chocolate and the butter with a whisk in a saucepan on medium-ish until smooth. Remove from heat. Get a fresh bowl and take the rest of the ingredients and whisk until smooth. Now combine the two mixtures. Pour in a small, but deep oven-safe dish. Doesn't have to be "bakeware." Just check out the bottom of your everyday-whatever-bowls. Bake at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes or until firm on the outside, slightly jiggly in the center.
Here are the proportions for one lucky girl or guy:
(Truth be told, this is really enough for two if you added a little ice cream. Recommended.)
2 oz. chocolate (chips, chunks, whatever)
3 TB butter
2 TB sugar
1 tsp. flour
dash vanilla extract
half pinch nutmeg
half pinch cinnamon
healthy pinch of sea salt
Curl up with a spoon and your crappiest, most embarrassing, guilty-pleasureful television.
