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……..
BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate- 4 squares
Butter- 1 stick
