These are lovely, little, sticky, indulgent and ever so simple to make. These are little ‘squares’ of heaven are called Sticky Chocolate Drop Cakes and sweet jebus they’re lovely. My lovely helper, chef and girlfriend helped me make these.
First off, lets find out what we need for the cakes themselves:
- 250g unsalted butter
- 300g golden caster sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 200g self-raising flour
- 50g cocoa
- 100g milk chocolate drops
Pre-heat the fire starter (oven) to 180 Celsius/356 Fahrenheit. What you want to start cooking first is to measure out your chunk of butter. You can measure it straight into the sauce pan which you’ll be using: this just helps to reduce the amount of cleaning you have to do later, instead of eating the awesome cakes.
Heat up your butter so that it melts. I recommend using the low setting so that it doesn’t start to burn the bottom of the pan. Once it’s all melted set it aside to cool for about 5 minutes, just while you prepare the other ingredients.
While the butter is cooling, measure out your sugar and get that sweet goodness into a lovely shiny bowl. (Your bowl doesn’t have to be shiny though). Add your vanilla extract. Get your 3 eggs from your local chicken/ equivalent market: super or otherwise, and crack them into a separate cup. We did this so we could add the eggs a bit at a time to get a good thorough mixing.
Once you’ve got your sugar, vanilla and egged cup sorted, it’s time to add all this yum together. We added the butter to the sugar an vanilla first before adding the eggs. You can also do this just to let the butter continue to cool while mixing in case the butter is still to warm and could possibly begin to cook the eggs a little: which is something I don’t think anybody wants, really. Once that’s mixed it’s time for the dry mix.
The Dry Mix: measure your flour and cocoa powder. This mix doesn’t have to be done together but it makes it quicker so you can get even closed to eating deliciousness. When that’s been measured, it’s time to combine everything.
Commence the vigorous sieving. Please, don’t try and get all the flour into the sieve at once: it will go everywhere and it probably isn’t fun for you or your parent(s) to clean up, unless you want to chance it. In that case, go for it. Make sure to mix this very well: no one wants lumps of flour in their mixtures. Once it’s all mixed together, get it in a lined cake tray/tin and insert it into the oven’s face for 30/35 minutes. Use a wooden/metal skewer to make sure it’s cooked. When it’s cooked, it should look like this (Below):
- 85g butter
- 85g caster sugar
- 200g light condensed milk
- 50g milk chocolate drops, plus extra, to scatter
Get the pan back on, using the lowest setting you can possibly get and situate your other butter into the pan and gently heat in till melted. Once melted, you may now complement you butter by adding amazingly tasty condensed milk. Swirl them two together till they’re united.
Take it off the heat. Seize the chocolate drops and begin to add as much as you want: it will help to continuously stir it together. Don’t forget to save some for later consumption…or to add to the cakes, that works too. After this all you’ll need to do is get this on top of the cakes by any means necessary and then you’ve finished making, you’ll be able to begin the eating, :P.
