Delicious baked chocolate recipe.
This recipe dates from the late nineteen seventies and I’ve reproduced it here just as it was originally given. I rarely cook with salt though and find that I don’t need it in this delicious, chocolate-y recipe. It’s easy to make and I like to serve it in individual glasses or ramekins.
The originator of the recipe suggests serving it with whipped cream but I find that a little rich for today’s tastes. It’s lovely served topped with fresh fruits instead. It’s a good idea to have a selection of fruit prepared and garnished with mint leaves then your guests or family can help themselves to whichever they please.
And this is a celebrity recipe – it comes from the kitchen of Nancy Kulp – the hilarious ‘Miss Jane’ from the TV show The Beverly Hillbillies.
Here’s the recipe:
- 2 squares unsweetened chocolate, broken into pieces
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup soft breadcrumbs
- ½ cup sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 separated eggs
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Place the chocolate, butter and milk into a saucepan.
- Heat until the chocolate and butter are melted.
- Stir well to blend.
- Add the breadcrumbs, sugar and salt.
- Beat the egg yolks a little and stir into the chocolate mix. Cool.
- Beat the egg whites until they are stiff and fold into the cooled chocolate mixture.
- Pour the mixture into a greased casserole and bake for thirty minutes.
