TWD: Mini Chocolate Armagnac Cakes

Inspiration:
Lyb of And Then I Do The Dishes chose the Chocolate Armagnac Cake and will be posting the recipe.


After discussing this recipe with Bridget, I decided to only prepare one third of the recipe and fill as many ramekins as necessary... which ended up being two. I decided not to glaze them, but I would do so if I were making the cake for a group. I enjoyed making this recipe-- it was definitely different than any chocolate cakes I have made before! I loved the moist texture.

The recipe had a few different options; I went with the ground walnuts, prunes, and brandy.

Ah, small batch baking. I get so happy whenever I get to make the full recipe for anything. I ended up making 2/3 of this one.

The mini cakes are adorable!

I really enjoyed this recipe, especially since I got to light something on fire.
Plus, it tasted really good, too.
