Chocolate Lava Cakes
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 4 (1 oz.) squares bittersweet chocolate
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup icing (confectioners') sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  1. Place chocolate and butter in a large bowl and microwave on high for about 1 minute, until chocolate is almost melted. Stir with a wire whisk until chocolate is completely melted.
  2. Whisk in sugar until well blended.
  3. Whisk in eggs and egg yolks. Stir in flour.
  4. Spray 4 (3/4 cup) custard or souffle cups with non-stick spray. Divide batter between baking cups.
  5. Place baking cups on a baking sheet, and bake at 425 degrees F. for 13-14 minutes, until sides are firm but centers are still soft.
  6. Remove from oven and let stand for 1 minute. Run a knife around sides to loosen. Invert cups onto dessert plates to remove cakes. Top with a dollop of whipped cream if desired, and serve immediately.
