Molten Lava Cake

One of the most common, expensive and delicious desserts that is readily available at most high class restaurants is the molten lava cake.  I used to love ordering one when we would go out for a special occasion, but not any more, not since I learned just how easy and cheap these really are to make. I made these the other night and remembered just how absolutely amazing they are, although it is probably bad that I know that these are easy to make because I will start making them more frequently. YOU MUST GIVE IT A TRY!

4 one ounce squares of semi-sweet baking chocolate
½ cups butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 whole eggs
2 whole egg yolks
6 Tbsp flour

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Spray 4 custard cups with Pam and place on cookie sheet.
3. Microwave chocolate and butter in large bowl on high for about 1 minute, until butter is melted. whisk until chocolate is also melted.
4. Stir in powdered sugar until well blended. Whisk in eggs and egg yolks. Stir in flour.
5. Divide between cups.
6. Bake 13-14 minutes until sides are firm and center is soft. Let stand 1 minute.
7. Invert cakes on dishes and top with powdered sugar, whipped cream, or ice cream.  ENJOY!
