Individual Molten Lava Cakes

"These are so quick and easy. I make them after dinner that way they are nice and gooey. You will need 4 small ramekins. My oven is weird so I cook for maybe 9 minutes I check often to mke sure they are still jiggly. After remving from oven I run a knife around the edges before unmolding. I use a combination of dark and semi sweet chocolate"

directions

  • Position rack in middle of oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. Butter and flour four 4-ounce ramekins.
  • Melt chocolate with butter. Remove from heat. Beat eggs, yolks and sugar with an electric mixer on high speed in a deep bowl, 8 minutes, until thick and pale. Whisk chocolate mixture into egg mixture. Whisk in flour.
  • Pour batter into ramekins. Place on baking sheet and bake 14 minutes, or until cakes have risen and have a thin crust, sides are set and cakes are slightly jiggly in the center; under baking is better than over baking.
  • Carefully invert each cake onto a serving plate and let sit 20 seconds. Unmold by lifting up one corner of mold; cake will fall onto plate. Dust tops with confectioners' sugar and serve immediately.

    I love this recipe! I have recently had to start living a gluten free lifestyle for medical reasons and found this recipe to be very versatile. I used 6 oz of 70% chocolate and only 2 tablespoons of gluten free all purpose flour (cup4cup brand) as alternatives in the recipe and baked for only 8-10 minutes to remain molten (12-15 minutes for a moist chocolate cake).

    We used half bittersweet and half semi sweet Chocolates. It was very good. I agree with 9 minutes. I tried 10 and it was a little over done.
