A gooey milk chocolate fudge cake. The only way i can describe this cake is it tastes like cooked brownie batter. Seriously addictive! This size suits my family perfectly but if you want to serve more people just double the recipe. Perfect with warm fresh homemade custard or ice cream
150g Milk chocolate, chopped
1 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup Milk
1/2 cup Caster sugar
1/4 cup Brown sugar
1/2 cup Plain flour
Preheat oven to 160'c. Line a small, high sided cake tin with baking paper (I butter my tin first so the baking paper will stick). Place the butter and chocolate in your thermocook bowl and cook on speed 2 at 50 deg for 2mins 30secs ( or you can just do this is a saucepan over a medium heat) . Add the cocoa and milk and mix combine. Set aside whilst you make the rest of the mix.
Place the eggs, brown and caster sugars in the bowl of a mixer (I use my kitchenaid mixer) and whisk on high speed for 6-8 minutes or until pale in colour and thick and creamy.
Add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and mix until just combined. Set the speed to low, add the flour and mix until just combined.
Pour the cake mixture into the tin and bake for 1 hour or until set. Allow the cake to cool completely in the tin. Remove the cake from the tin,dust with icing sugar to serve.

2 Tablespoons Panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Plain Flour
1 cup warm Milk
1/2 cup Cheese, grated
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon Parsley, chopped
4 Eggs, at room temp
Preheat oven to 200'c. Grease 4 x 1 cup ramekins. Place a baking tray into the oven to preheat.
Add breadcrumbs to ramekins and turn to coat the bottom and sides. Shake out excess.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Add flour, stir well to combine and then keep stirring for 1 min (this cooks the flour). Remove from the heat and gradually add the warm milk mixing until smooth. Return to the heat and stir until the mixture boils and thickens, add cheeses and parsley and mix until smooth.
Separate each egg, one at a time, beating yolks into the sauce and putting egg whites into a clean bowl. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the sauce mixture.
Divide the mixture evenly between the ramekins and smooth tops with a knife. Place onto your preheated tray and bake for 20mins until puffed and golden. Serve immediately.
