Chocolate Molten Lava Cake

This is by far one of the tastiest, most decadent, fabulous chocolate recipes for the chocoholic.


Chocolate Molten Lava Cake

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

6 0z. chocolate (high quality, not chocolate chips)

3 eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup corn starch (sifted)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Put chocolate and butter into a bowl and melt until smooth in the microwave or in a double-boiler on stove.  Stir frequently.  Set aside

In large bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt.  Mix well.

Slowly pour the chocolate mixture into the sugar/egg mixture and stir until combined

Cover the batter and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (overnight)

Scoop mixture evenly into six cups in a muffin pan or similar

Put in oven and turn pan after 15 minutes to allow even baking

Bake for another 10-15 minutes.  They will be done when the outside has risen slightly above the sides of the pan and the center is puffed up but still soft

Let cool completely.   Unmold carefully

Serve on a plate and garnish with chocolate curls and berries

To serve warm, heat in oven for 5 minutes before garnishing.
