Baby Lava Cakes


Molten Magma Heaven

Ingredients
4 oz   Dark unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 oz   Semisweet chocolate, chopped
0.5 cup 125 ml   Butter
1 tbsp 15 ml   Sugar
3 large   Eggs
0.75 cup 190 ml   Flour
0.5 tsp 5 ml   Baking Powder
1.5 tbsp 21 ml   Cocoa Powder

 
1. Over top of a double boiler gently melt the dark unsweetened chocolate and the semisweet chocolate over medium heat. Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, stir in the butter and stir until it is melted and combined.

2. Take the chocolate off the heat, and pour into a bowl. With an egg beater, quickly mix in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the flour, sugar, baking powder and cocoa powder, until the mixture is glossy and smooth.

3. Pour the batter into greased muffin tins. Cover with saran wrap and transfer to the freezer. Allow the lava cakes to freeze for at least three hours. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375*F. Bake the lava cakes, immidiately from the freezer for 10-12 minutes.
