The recipe made too much batter for four ramekins. I filled the ramekins to the top and they spilled over quite a bit. They definitely took a lot longer than 10 minutes to bake. They were delicious and I will try it again cutting the recipe down and perhaps baking at 375 instead of 350.
This was my first try with making lava cakes, from scratch or otherwise - and they turned out great! I prepared the batter just before dinner, then popped them into the oven as we were finishing up per the author's suggestion. I agree it was too much batter for four 4-oz. ramekins, but just right for five servings. They puffed up nicely and came out quite clean just from tipping them over to release. I cooked them for a few extra minutes, and thought it was just the right amount of "lava." Rich and chocolate-y, and easy to make - we'll probably eat these way too often!!
OUTSTANDING RECIPE making for an AWESOME LAVA CAKE! We really enjoyed this dessert & a copy of the recipe is safe in my keeper file! I've made these from a package mix before but never from scratch! I loved it as is, but then I'm a died-in-the-wool chocoholic, so . . . For me your recipe was right-on & everything came out in wonderful shape! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
