Chocolate Pecan Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cakelets Dressed with Kahlua

I'll post my V-Day cook in another thread... the unexpected star of the show ended up being the dessert which I kinda made up on the fly.

Cooked dinner, and as the Egg was shut down, I planned to make cakelets in ramekins. Started with a store bought mug cake mix.


its supposed to be made in the microwave, but that sounded ick. So I took one of the packets and added the 1/4 cup of milk it asked for. Figured I would throw in a tablespoon of bourbon for good measure. Added Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips and pecans. 

Set up a pizza stone raised direct at the felt line, clay feet spacers, then another pizza stone. Placed the ramekins on the stone. Temp was about 375 and falling since the egg was shut down.


Let it go for about 25mins. Pulled them when a toothpick poked in the center came out clean. The temp had dropped to about 280 (I opened the dome a bunch of times to check and make sure they didn't burn.All ready:

Dressed each cakelet with a teaspoon of Kahlua and let cool for 10mins.

Sorry, no final pics because they went fast! They were superb, and I will definitely make these again.

    Made cakelets because we are trying to watch portion sizes, fat, etc. so no ice cream :) Each cakelet was approx 100 calories, but had a lot of flavor.
