My nephew is a huge fan of our local college team. He is asking for little cakes that are like the individual molten chocolate cakes (the ones that ooze chocolate when you cut into them) but he wants the filling to be orange (reference the fan saying of "we bleed big orange"). I bake a good bit but have to admit this one has me stumped. Any ideas? TIA
I don't know if would work, but what about using white chocolate and orange flavoring?
Could you dye white chocolate ganache orange and then use that to make the molten cake? Haven't done it but it seems like it would work.
I'm from TN too. I wanna see these cakes if you can pull it off! I have no idea how you would do it though. But I can't wait to see the final results. I bleed orange too.
Not sure about doing a molten orange, but you could just bake the cakes and then pipe orange curd into the cooled cakes. That would taste lovely with a chocolate cake and you'd have orange when you cut into them. They just wouldn't be hot and ooey-gooey chocolate. The only other thing I could think of is to make homemade orange colored marshmallows and use that for the center.
Mike from "Amazing Cakes" uses a method of adding pudding (?) in a cake that is an "egg" and the yellow pudding is in the "yolk". He makes it yellow and marks a the point in front of the cake so that it will run when cut into. This technique came out on Sugar Rush show on the Food Network. If you need more help pm because I do have the show saved.
I don't see any reason why you couldn't follow the recipe, use white baking chocolate instead of the dark, color it with some red food coloring, I would thin you would have to use the kind for coloring chocolates. You can pick it up at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I would think this would work. Good Luck
There's a method of doing these cakes where you freeze ganache balls and drop it into the cake right before baking. So I think this or one of these techniques would work--just gotta do some testing.
I bleed orange too...but not TN orange... OSU orange! Would love to know how these turned out, my family would love these!
Oh we beed University of Illinois orange! I cant wait to see how these turn out, be sure to post it on here! It sounds delicious!
This is a recipe for the individual molten lava cake from the Kraft brand website.
Why not split the recipe in two. In the first half, use two semi-sweet chocolate squares. In the second half use two squares of white chocolate that has been colored orange. After making the two batches of batter (one chocolate and one orange) spoon out a little of the chocolate batter in the custard/muffin cups. Next, dallop some of the orange on top of the chocolate (this will be the center) and then a little bit more of the chocolate on top (envision the chocolate enveloping the orange).
I have one more idea to throw out there for you! This recipe makes a peanut butter molten cake... when it is cut into the peanut butter comes oozing out... in this case you could just dye the peanut butter orange! Here is the recipe:
