Almond chocolate mi-cuit recipe
- Cuisine: French
- Serves 12
A classic mi-cuit in France, I just added some chopped chocolate pieces to have it more chocolatey and gooey!
IngredientsAlmond chocolate mi-cuit
250g butter, at room temperature
200g caster sugar
300g almond meal, roasted
10g baking powder
40g cocoa powder
5 (250g) whole eggs
225g dark couverture chocolate, chopped
300ml thickened cream (35% fat)
1 tbsp vanilla bean paste
50g caster sugar
125g plain flour
30g cocoa powder
125g raw sugar
90g almond meal
PreparationPreheat oven to 175°C.
Line a 12 x 4cm diameter (5cm high) metal cake rings with collars of silicon paper, extending a few centimetres above the top of the ring. Place on an oven tray.
Combine the butter, sugar, roasted almond meal, baking powder, cocoa powder in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs and chocolate, and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag and pipe into cake rings, filling to the top of the metal only.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
To make the vanilla chantilly, whisk all the ingredients together until stiff peaks form.
To make the chocolate streusel, in the bowl of an electric mixer (with paddle attachment), combine the flour, salt, cocoa and baking powder. Add the sugar, almond meal and butter, and mix to form a crumbly dough. Crumble the mixture on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Bake at 175°C for 5-6 minutes.
To serve, remove the mi-cuit from the rings and arrange on serving plates. Serve with the chocolate streusel and Chantilly cream. Decorate with chocolate curls and gold leaf, if using.
