Molten Lava Cakes
Molten lava cakes are one of my favorite desserts. I love when the cake part is still warm and the inside part is creamy and fudgey. These are easy to make and only bake for a little bit so they can be made last minute. This recipe is from Paula Deen.
6 - 1 oz squares of bittersweet chocolate
2 - 1 oz squares of semisweet chocolate
10 tablespoons butter (1-1/4 sticks)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1-1/2 cups confectioners sugar
3 large eggs
3 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Grease 6 - 6 oz. custard cups. Melt the chocolates and butter in the microwave. Add the flour and sugar to the chocolate mixture.
Stir in the eggs and egg yolks until smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract.
Divide the batter evenly among the custard cups. Place in the oven and bake for 13 minutes. The edges will be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.
Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
