French Food Friday...Délice au Chocolat et aux Bananes



Délice au Chocolat et aux Bananes… A creamy, extra "chocolatey" treat! Looks beautiful and tastes even better! An easy chocolate dessert recipes that will make you (and your guests!) speechless.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: about 20 minutes

Ingredients: (4 - 6 people)

7 oz. Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate (or your favorite high-quality dark chocolate at 70% cocoa)
2 Eggs
2/3 cup Crème Fraîche (or heavy cream)
1/2 cup Whole Milk
2-3 Bananas
1 tbsp. Butter (room temperature)
Rum
Powdered Sugar to decorate
Butter and Granulated Sugar for baking dish

How to Make It:

Preheat oven to 350°F
1. Chop chocolate into small pieces and put in a bowl.
2. Heat up cream and milk (don't let it boil!) and pour over chocolate pieces. Stir until chocolate melts and the batter is smooth.
3. Stir in butter until smooth.
4. Once batter is cool, add eggs, and whisk well.
5. Butter and sugar a baking dish (or a flan dish).
6. Cut bananas into thick slices. Line the bottom of baking dish with bananas.
7. Pour chocolate batter into dish, over bananas, and bake for 15-25 minutes, depending on how firm you want it.

Tip:

You can prepare this dessert ahead of time. I always do! Add rum and powdered sugar, and bake additional 5 minutes right before serving!

Bon appetit à tous, Leeann x

  2. Dearest Leeann,

    That is a great treat for dessert. Your guests must get spoiled too! You always know how to present the best of French desserts.
    Guess with the French Demarle Silpat form it would work excellent.
    Hugs to you,
