Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes

April 21, 2011 at 9:59 pm Leave a comment

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
3 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
(3 tablespoons chocolate chips equal 1 ounce)
1/4 cup flour
pinch of salt
cocoa and oil spray for greasing and dusting the ramekins

Preheat oven to 400°

Grease and dust four 4 ounce ramekins with spray and cocoa generously and set aside

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy
add eggs one at a time
add flour and salt
add chocolate
mix well and fill ramekins

Bake 10-12 minutes until cakes are just set
remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes
turn cakes out of ramekins and serve

Cake shown was baked in a toaster oven and turned out perfectly.

I read somewhere that restaurant chefs make these in advance, freeze them, and cook off individually as needed.

[Edit] It worked! Straight out of the freezer and into the oven. I baked for 12 minutes and let it rest for the necessary 5 minutes and it was as good as fresh.
