Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes

Posted on Posted in Desserts, French
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a chocoholic. I love chocolate in all its forms, colors and sizes – dark, white, fudge, ice cream, cake, you name it. So when I saw a recipe for this luscious lava cake, I couldn’t resist. The best part is it was so incredibly easy and quick to make! It came out perfect – a rich chocolate cake oozing with warm, gooey chocolate. The trick is not to overcook the cake; if you do, you won’t get the fudgy center.
Chocolate makes me happy and it doesn’t get more chocolate-y than this. While eating this, I was whisked away to Chocolateland for 5 mins of pure bliss. Ahh…Already looking forward to the next time I’ll be able to enjoy these again…

3 1/2 oz of Dark Chocolate
1/3 cup Butter
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 whole Eggs
2 whole Egg Yolks
2/3 cups Flour
1 tbsp Liquor Per Ramekin (optional) I used coffee liquor because I think coffee brings out the chocolate’s taste even more.
Method:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Spray 4 medium or 6 small ramekins with oil and place on cookie sheet.

Microwave chocolate and butter in large bowl on high for about 1 minute, until butter is melted. Whisk until chocolate is also melted.
If you think the chocolate is hot, let it cool down or else you’ll get scrambled eggs instead of a cake batter!
