*For a treat, stick a piece of white chocolate in the middle before baking! Serve with ice cream, or your favorite sauce.
In the Winter, we like serving this rich cake with a fresh citrus salad made from blood oranges and tangelos.
* These cakes may be stored uncooked in their ramekins in the refrigerator for up to 1 week covered. Before baking, let them stand at room temperature for a minimum of 20 minutes.
Combine all ingredients and serve with the gateau.
This tart salad is an excellent match for the sweet, chocolate decadence.
Serve with fresh strawberries. They are great for dipping!
