Molten Lava Cakes


1/2 cup salted butter

6 oz. bittersweet chocolate

2 eggs

2 egg yolks

1/4 cup sugar

1 pinch salt

2 tbsp flour


Chop six ounces of semisweet chocolate, then transfer it and the butter to a pot; heat on low. Stir chocolate and butter until smooth. Whisk two eggs and two yolks with a pinch of salt, then add 1/4 cup of sugar and mix in a stand mixer until it has a light yellow color and becomes thicker in texture. Fold in the chocolate. Add flour and mix in. Transfer the batter to buttered and floured ramekins. Bake at 450°F for six to eight minutes. Baking time will depend on the size of the ramekins you use. Let them sit for a minute before transferring them to a dessert plate. Sift with powdered sugar and add fruit or whipped cream. Recipe makes six cakes.
