My baking experiment #10 – chocolate lava cakes

One of my favorite desserts that i like to order at restaurants are those molten chocolate lava cakes. I especially love the ones from Chili’s, topped with vanilla ice-cream and chocolate fudge. Yum…

So i decided to make some: http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/molten-chocolate-cakes-69182.aspx

Ingredients

1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1/2 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 whole eggs
egg yolks
6 Tbsp flour

Instructions

HEAT oven to 425°F. Grease 4 small custard cups; place on baking sheet.

MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in medium microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until butter is melted; whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Add whole eggs and egg yolks; mix well. Stir in flour. Spoon into prepared cups.

BAKE 13 to 14 min. or until edges of desserts are firm but centers are still soft. Let stand 1 min. Carefully run knife around cakes to loosen; invert into dessert plates. Serve warm with powdered sugar.

OMG this was pure decadence!! So rich & chocolatey, super yummy! Once you cut open the outer cake layer, the chocolate inside oozes out of the cake like beautiful molten lava, so silky smooth. I finished it in a few bites and could have gone for more.

I never knew it was so easy to make a molten lava cake! Now i can enjoy this delicious dessert whenever i want! Next time i’ll top it with ice-cream 😀
