Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes
These cakes are so rich and delicious, and you'll be amazed how easy they are to make!
- 6 oz bittersweet chocolate 6 1oz squares
- 2 oz semi sweet chocolate 2 1oz squares
- 10 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 3 eggs
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 425*F.
Grease 6-8 (6oz) ramekins (oven safe dustard cups) with butter, or non-stick cooking spray. You can fill 6 dishes full, or 8 dishes 3/4 full.
Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave, or in a double boiler.
Stir the melted chocolate and butter until smooth, then add the flour and sugar and stir just a couple times.
Add in the eggs, yolks and vanilla, and stir until incorporated and smooth.
Divide the batter as evenly as possible among the ramekins.
Bake 14 minutes if using 6 dishes, or 12 minutes if batter is divided into 8 dishes. The edges should be firm, but the center will be loose.
Allow to cool 1-2 minutes. Enjoy directly from the dish, or run a knife around the edges of the dish, and invert onto a dessert plate.
Dust with powdered sugar, or serve with whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream.
