      Texas Toast

      Texas toast is crispy, crunchy and full of buttery garlic flavors that go great with any main entree. The Air Fryer or oven locks in the essence of the garlic spread and does not leave your fingers covered in grease when taking a bite. The bread is still soft enough in the middle to give that extra ohh my goodness feeling when you sink your feet in for a much anticipated taste. I absolutely love Texas toast with my steak but also pasta seems all alone without this partner at the table. The only problem you will have is making enough of this to make it though the meal. The first batch I made was gone before I knew it. So I recommend grabbing two just incase you want another, as it may not be there when you finish your first slice. Buttery rich garlic covered Texas toast is an absolute must try for anyone that loves awesome garlic bread. I have been making this garlic spread recipe for years and it is just the right balance of flavors and you may never buy store bought spread again once you give this easy to make recipe a try.

          Ingredients

          In a large bowl: add eggs, egg yolks, sugar and salt.

          Beat, using a hand mixer, on high for 5 minutes or until thickens and looks pale.

          Stovetop: Fill the saucepan with 2 cups of water, fit a glass heat proof bowl atop the pan and steam/simmer over the water on a medium heat. Add the chocolate wafers and butter to the glass bowl. Stir until smooth. Remove from stovetop. Microwave: In a glass heat proof bowl: add chocolate wafers and coconut, cook for 1 minute at half power. Stir and cook for another minute until melted.

          Slowly add the melted chocolate to the large bowl of beaten eggs and mix. Add flour and mix/fold together until the batter becomes thick. (Note: Do NOT use a hand mixer).

          Divide the chocolate batter evenly and place in the ramekins (I used an ice cream scooper).

          Butter each ramekin, then lightly coat them with flour.

          Divide the chocolate batter evenly and place in the ramekins (I used an ice cream scooper).

          Place the trivet in the 6 qt pressure cooker. Add 1 cup cold water. Place three (3) ramekins side by side in the trivet and stack one (1) ramekin in the center of the pot on top of the three below (see pictures and video for reference).

          Place the lid on. Pressure cook on high for 7 minutes, followed by a quick release . Follow the manufacture instructions for releasing the pressure. Remove the lid. The sides of the cake should look firm and solid – the tops still should look soft.

          Remove the ramekins from the cooker (be careful very hot) and place them on a baking rack (use heatproof glove or mitten). Let cakes rest for exactly 2 minutes. Gently run a thin knife around the edges of the cake. Be careful to avoid tearing or cutting the cakes. Place the cake upside down on a plate or cover each ramekin with a plate and flip, slowly lift the bowl.

          Dust cake with powdered sugar (optional). Serve with fresh raspberries, strawberries or ice cream. Serve immediately and enjoy!
