The Nine of Pentacles represents quality time spend alone. She’s one of my all time favorites of the deck, a woman who knows who she is, confident and secure in herself and her surroundings.

Chocolate Lava Cake for One Recipe

Elements:
2 oz. semi sweet baking chocolate, chopped or chips
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
pinch of salt

Alchemy:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Butter a single 6or 8oz ramekin and dust with sugar.

Melt the chocolate either on a double boiler or in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

Cream butter and sugar.

When it looks like a paste, add egg.

Whisk until foamy.

Stir in flour and salt.

Gently fold a bit of chocolate (don’t heat the egg).

Incorporate remaining chocolate.

Pour into prepared ramekin.

Bake approx. 10 minutes.

After it is cool enough to touch, flip ramekin onto a plate.

Gently use a butter knife to ease the cake out and onto the plate.

Garnish with your choice of tasty toppings: powdered sugar, whipped cream, berries or ice cream.

That’s magic!!

Helpful hints:

Normally you’d cream the butter and sugar in a mixer. This recipe is so small, just use a whisk and spatula until its fluffy.

When you add the chocolate, add a small amount first so you don’t cook your raw egg, {{blech}}!

You can make this flourless!

I accidentally made a version of this recipe without the flour when we made the video. Guess what? The flourless version was still tasty 🙂
