Perfect-Portion Chocolate Lava Cakes

We're back! Sorry for the long drought, we both had babies!!

So back to business.

These cakes are ridiculous.

I recommend vanilla ice cream, tho. Don't wanna overdue the chocolate, I know it sounds crazy but once you try this, you'll see what I mean! This recipe is EASY and will make you look like a pro. I made these for my mother-in-laws birthday, and everyone was begging for more. I will make these forever!!!

Perfect-Portion Chocolate Lava Cakes
Makes 12 little cakes (muffin size)
Portions adapted from Lauren's Latest.

2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs AND
2 egg yolks (yes, 4 eggs total)
1 cup powdered sugar
6 Tbs flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Spray a muffin tin with non stick cooking spray and set aside. Give it a good spray, you want these to come out nice after they're done baking.

Melt chocolate and butter in a large bowl. Cool a couple minutes. Stir in eggs and egg yolks until incorporated, this cooks the eggs. Stir in powdered sugar and flour. Spoon into prepared muffin tin so batter is 1/2 of the way up. Bake 8-9 minutes or until the edges are cooked and the centers are soft. Cool 5 minutes and carefully remove from pan using a butter knife. 

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

  1. Catherine, this looks fabulous!I didn't know you had a cooking blog. I am always looking for something to liven up dinner. Maybe if I ever get any traffic you can guest post one of your recipes on my blog, a frugal one of course ;)Though it looks like you have quite a few fans already. Congratulations on the new baby!
