Chocolate Molten Cakes




This recipe is purely sinful, so easy to make and double easy to devour! These molten cakes are a family favorite in my house. I also serve these quite often at dinner parties because they are a cinch to whip up, and the presentation looks amazing. The center of your cake should be gooey like molten lava.


4 squares of semisweet baking chocolate
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)
1 cup of powdered sugar
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
2 1/2 Tbs. flour
Vanilla ice cream


Preheat oven to 425˙
Combine 1 stick of butter and the 4 chocolate squares in a glass bowl. Microwave the butter and chocolate for 1 to 2 minutes only. If everything in the bowl does not look melted that is o.k. keep stirring the mixture and everything will eventually melt. You do not want to burn your chocolate. When all melted add 1 cup of powdered sugar, 2 eggs and 2 egg yolk, stir by hand. Then by hand add your flour. Mix well.
Butter heavily small ramekins, pour batter into each cup, about half way up. Bake for 13 to 14 minutes. The inside should be gooey. Serve warm and with Ice cream.




  1. OMG... this recipe is perfect. I am definately making these for my family. My husband would probably eat 2. Your photos are beautiful (as always). I don't know how you never have a splatter or mark on your dishes. You really could photograph for cooking magazines or seomthing. Ever think about making your own cookbook?
