Moist Chocolate Cakes with Pomegranates

Happy Christmas Eve eve!! Are you guys ready? Christmas is only a day away!
We are leaving for Christmas, to go see our families, so we had our little family Christmas tonight. We decided to order in, so I don’t have to cook but I still made dessert to treat my boys. I wanted to make something special with pomegranates and I thought chocolate would be a great pairing for it.
Turns out, those two flavors are perfect together! I found a wonderful recipe for a moist chocolate cake. This cake really is super moist and full of flavor. Make sure to eat it with pomegranates in every bite, for full flavor experience.

Ingredients:
(Recipe source)
(makes 3 – 12 oz ramekins)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla

1 large pomegranate, seeds separated
Powder sugar for topping

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 and grease 3 large ramekins.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the liquid ingredients.
3. Sift in the flour, baking soda, sugar, salt and cocoa powder. Whisk until all combined.
4. Separate the batter between the ramekins equally.
5. Sprinkle some pomegranates on top on the cakes (You can also mix them in if you want)
6. Bake for 25-28 minutes, do a toothpick test for doneness and take them out of the oven. Let the cakes cool before taking them out of the ramekins.
**(You can also use 4 ramekins, less filled for smaller sized cakes. If using more or smaller ramekins, adjust baking time accordingly. If making cupcakes, bake for 13-15 minutes.)
7. Once the cakes are cooled, carefully take them out of the ramekins. Slide a butter knife between the ramekin and the cake, all around. Turn the ramekin upside down and slide out the cake into your palm. Plate the cake, sprinkle with powder sugar and pomegranate seeds.

Enjoy!!
