Before everything, i need to say i am not a fan of chocolate. But after the first bite into this piece of gem, i was like...wow. It was just so.... delicious.
Recipe: ( from here , original from How to be a Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson, with a slight modified)
- 125g dark chocolate ( I used 52% cocoa chocolate)
- 125g unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
- 200g sugar ( I used 140g)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 75g plain flour
- pinch of salt
- 200g of cold creamcheese ( I used 100g)
Melt the chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Beat the eggs with sugar and vanilla. Mix flour and salt in another bowl. When the chocolate almost melted completely, take the pan off the heat. Leave it for awhile to cool slightly then beat in the egg mixture. Finally add the flour, beat until smooth. Pour half of the mixture in to a greased 18cm square pan, slice the creamcheese as thin as possible and put it on the mixture in the tin, pour the remaining mixture over the top. Smooth the top so that all the creamcheese is well covered. Bake for about 20-25' in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C ( 160 degrees C, fan- forced). Cool for about 10' before cutting it into squares.
