Dessert DIY: Molten Lava Cake Recipe
A moist cake outer shell with warm and gooey chocolate that oozes out? Yes, please and make I'll take three! Here is why I love lava cakes: they combine two delicious desserts in one and while each on it's own is pretty darn good, together it's like a decadent explosion of flavour in your mouth. I rarely actually get the chance to make them though. So when Lisa, of Rice Pudding and Buttermilk Pancake fame sent me a recipe and these incredible photos of lava cakes that she made, I said: 'done deal lady, let's do this thing'!
Here is Lisa's recipe for lava cakes:
Molten Chocolate Cake, makes 6 servings
By Lucy Waverman, LCBO Food & Drink
6 oz (175 g) bittersweet chocolate
2/3 cup (150 mL) unsalted butter
1/3 cup (75 mL) sugar
6 egg yolks
3 egg whites
1/3 cup (75 mL) all-purpose flour
Chop chocolate to easily melt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). In a heavy pot, on low heat, melt chocolate and butter together. Cool slightly.
Beat together sugar and egg yolks until thick and creamy, about 4 minutes.
Pour in chocolate mixture and beat together for 5 minutes.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Fold into mixture along with flour.
Pour into 6 buttered molds of non-stick muffin tins or oven safe ramekins. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until edges are just cooked and centre is still liquid.
Cool for 5 minutes in tins. Carefully remove to serving dishes. Serve with whipped cream or icing sugar and berries (as shown).
Alright, so who else is drooling? Have you ever made or tried lava cakes?

@LissaG If you are in Canada, I know that I have found them at the Dollarama for like 2 or 3 for $1.50 or $2 I think. Also try like a Winners or Home Sense and a Wal Mart!
This looks amazing! Does anyone know where to buy those little ramekins for cheap?
Love the pictures for this! Very nice.
