    Jenn1980's Note:

    I found this in Paula's New Magazine. I felt it would be great for a Valentine's dinner. Paula says this cake is great alone, but it can be topped with vanilla ice cream or a raspberry sauce. The recipe can be made ahead and refrigerated for 2 to 3 days.

      I made this for my husband on Valentine's Day and he loved it (as did the kids). Substituted 8-oz semi-sweet chocolate chips, used four whole eggs and omitted the Grand Marnier. Baked in six large silicone muffin cups for 14 min. They were easy to remove after cooling for 5 min or so. The centers were wonderfully gooey. Served with a drizzle of raspberry sauce on the side. Great recipe! This is definitely going in the family recipe book.

      Made this exactly except left out the Grand Marnier. Baked in ramekins for exactly 14 minutes. Only used 5 ramekins instead of 6( that's all I had), so wondered if they would be cooked enough. The cake was moist in the middle, but not gooey. Next time I will go a few minutes less on the baking time. The taste was good, but just would prefer them to be less firm in the middle.

      I made this for my husband for valentines day this year as he had been bugging me to make molten lava cakes for a month! I have another recipie I use but this time I wanted to try something different and Paula Deen is a fave cook of mine. My husband enjoyed the cakes and so did I but I will stick to the other recipe have next time. The other recipie I have had a kick of cayene pepper and more richness to it if you can believe it!
