Important: the whole point of this recipe is that the cake should only be half cooked, if not it's just a traditional chocolate cake.

At the end of the 9 minutes, tap the top of the cake, if it's a little bit crusty, it's done: take out of the oven, because it will continue cooking a little while afterwards.

The cakes can be turned out as soon as you can touch them.

Stage 17 - 5 min.

Serve on a plate, sprinkled with a little icing sugar, surrounded by raspberry coulis and decorated with mint leaves.

Remarks

You can replace raspberries with strawberries, or more surprisingly by blackcurrants.

If you do not have a coulis, you can quickly prepare a "mash of fruits" by mixing and crushing the fruits (raspberries, cut in small pieces, wild strawberries, currants...) summarily with a fork.
