Little Chocolate Cakes

Petits Gâteaux au Chocolat


Work half a pound of butter till like a cream, then add two ounces of Fry’s chocolate chopped fine, and rubbed through a sieve, and four ounces of sugar, work together for about ten minutes, then mix in four whole eggs and four ounces of fine flour by degrees; work again for about a quarter of an hour, put it in a buttered and papered baking tin that is dusted with flour and castor sugar in equal quantities for about half an hour, then when cold cut in any shape you please. Mask with chocolate glace and ornament with rough white and pink loaf sugar or almonds coloured, and some with pistachios chopped fine. This mixture can also be baked in any large fancy mould and served for a sweet or dessert.
