It is a good thing Thanksgiving happens only once a year 🙂 By the time we get over how much we ate, Christmas is going to be here and we’ll start everything all over again.

I am really looking forward to December, as it is my favorite month of the year.

I have planned so many delicious recipes (especially desserts). I have decided to have some fun and make 12 Days filled with amazing recipes ’till Christmas.

Warm chocolate cakes with raspberry coulis

This morning my house smells like a chocolate factory!!!

I am baking warm chocolate cakes with a fresh raspberry coulis for my first day of Christmas Recipes.

This is an all time favorite in our house and these moist, melting in your mouth chocolate beauties are ready in just 35 minutes, preparation and baking included.

How to make mini Chocolate Cakes from scratch?

I like to make these mini chocolate cakes with dark chocolate, but I have tried them with regular, milk chocolate too and they are really great. These cakes are quite rich and the fresh raspberry coulis balances the whole dessert. Something a little bit tart was needed 🙂

The price is really great too, for 12 muffin sized warm chocolate cakes and raspberry coulis, the cost will be under $5. Not bad for a homemade from scratch dessert recipe!

Most of the ingredients you must probably already have in your fridge/ pantry:

  • flour
  • sugar
  • cocoa powder
  • eggs

For the raspberry coulis, I have used just half of the frozen raspberries bag, the other half storing it back in my freezer. I adore raspberries and I am certain they will not last for long in there 🙂
