Molten Lava Cake





It feels so good to be back and alive……. Last 3 weeks were terrible, we all were sick. Thanks to my son for bringing home the flu & cough. The best part is that after 3-4 days he was fine and jumping up & down. I really missed all your awesome creations.

So to celebrate my coming back I thought of posting this molten lava cake which I had made for V-Day. If you are a chocoholic like me, trust me this is all you need to hit the spot. If you want a smaller portion you can use muffin tray with paper cups and reduce the baking time (10-11 mns) , done that too. This batter can be made in advance and frozen, thaw it to room temperature 1 hr before using and bake it. Enjoy……..

Ingredients:

BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate- 4 squares
Butter- 1 stick
Powdered sugar- 1 cup
Eggs- 2
Egg yolks- 2
Flour- 6 Tbsp

Method:

Preheat oven to 425°F. Butter four 3/4-cup custard cups or ramekins. Place on baking sheet.

Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until butter is melted. Stir with wire whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar until well blended. Blend in eggs and egg yolks with wire whisk. Stir in flour. Divide batter among prepared custard cups.



Bake 13 to 14 min. or until sides are firm but centers are soft. Let stand 1 min . Carefully run small knife around cakes to loosen. Invert cakes onto dessert dishes. Serve immediately, topped with whipped topping or ice cream .
