I've been making mini desserts recently, to have just one serving for both N and myself so we wouldn't overdo it. I can down an entire chocolate cake all by myself in a few hours--my mother can testify. Last night I made lime custard tarts, but tonight was a tiny chocolate cake.
Chocolate Cake for Two
18 g cocoa powder
56 g boiling water
56 g sugar
1 t vanilla
1 T butter, softened
50 g flour
1/4 t baking soda
Whisk the cocoa and boiling water until smooth; mix in sugar. Mix in egg when cooled a little. Kneed together butter and remaining dry ingredients (flour and soda) until butter is fully incorporated. Add dry/butter mixture to wet mixture, mixing until smooth. Bake at 350 in an approximately 5in diamater ramekin or souffle dish until springy when pressed. (I used a 16oz CorningWare dish.)
I made a chocolate whipped cream (heavy cream, vanilla, sugar, cocoa powder) to frost it and topped with dark chocolate crumbs.
...and we ate it so fast, I couldn't take a pretty picture of the tasty guts tumbling out.
