Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

Oh. My. Goodness...what can I say about this dessert? It is absolutely delicious, rich and chocolatey. Everything I could dream of on one plate! I have already had this cake a few times in the past week (oops!) and now I feel its time to share this wonderful treasure. I love that it is not only SUPER easy but it tastes as though it is a 5 dollar dessert from a restaurant!

If you have never expierenced Molten Chocolate Lava Cake, here is an exerpt from a book I just started reading...Lunch in Paris

Moelleux au Chocolat Kitu
"When le dessert finally arrives, it looks like an innocent upside-down chocolate cupcake, accompanied by a small cloud of freshly whipped cream. But when my spoon breaks the surface, the chocolate center flows like dark lava onto the whiteness of the plate. The last ounce of stress drains from my body."


4 squares Bakers Chocolate, semisweet
1/2 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
6 tbsp flour
Vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and microwave for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Mix until smooth then add suger and mix until combined.

Stir in eggs and flour until batter is smooth.

Pour batter into 4 well-greased glass custard cups or ramkins.

Cook 13-14 minutes. Edges should be firm while the middle is soft.

Slide a thin knife along the edges and turn over on a plate. Top with powdered sugar and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
