Molten Lava Cakes

Tonight as I was preparing our dessert {using a spatula} I knew I needed to post this recipe. After going on a cruise--Molten Lava Cakes are one of our favorite desserts. My oldest son could eat them every night, but I only prefer to cook them occasionally.

The recipe that I found I like the best came from I have revised it slightly.

8 (1 ounce squares) semi-sweet baking chocolates
10 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 eggs
3 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 425`

Grease silicone cupcake pan. Melt butter and chocolate in the microwave. Mix in flour and sugar. Then add eggs and yolks until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Divide batter into cupcake pan (makes 12). Bake for 12 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center will be runny. The longer you cook them the less runny they are. And what is a Molten Lava cake without the Lava so don't overbake.

Flip the cupcake pan over and squish them so the cake comes out.

The coloring on these next pictures did not turn out great--but the cakes were great!!
