New Recipe of the week 6-Molten chocolate lava cakes




This week I tried out a new recipe for Valentines dessert.  Dinner was great we had steak, potatoes, Parmesan bread, broccoli and sauteed mushrooms.  For dessert we tried out my newest recipe that I found over on the Girl Gone Mom blog (go check out her blog, she has giveaways, recipes, reviews, etc).  It's a recipe that she got from Woman's Day and is super easy to make and so delectable.  My family was almost licking their plates when we were done.  This was our favorite dessert when we went on a cruise a couple of years ago if I had only known that it takes about 15 min. from start to finish and will quell any chocolate craving!

Recipe Ingredients (printable version)

    • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, plus more for the ramekins
    • 1 Tbsp flour, plus more for the ramekins
    • 1⁄3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
    • 1 large egg plus 1 large egg yolk
    • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar

Recipe Preparation

    1. Heat oven to 450ºF. Butter two 6-oz ramekins and dust the inside with flour. 

    2. Place the butter and chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave on high in 20-second intervals, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. 

    3. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg, egg yolk and sugar in a medium bowl until thick and lighter in color, about 1 minute. Add the melted chocolate mixture and flour and beat until fully incorporated and smooth. 

    4. Divide the batter between the prepared ramekins. Bake until edges are set and center still jiggles slightly, 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand for 15 seconds. Run a knife around edge, then invert each cake onto a plate. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve with fresh mint or berries, if desired. Serve immediately. 

    Make-Ahead Tip: Refrigerate the batter in the ramekins for up to 1 day. Before baking, bring to room temperature.
