Today for "Foodie Friday" we have something very easy but very special for you!!
Chocolate Lava Cake
So... lets get it started.
The mixture should be enough for 10 servings.
10 oz (280 g) bittersweet chocolate
4/5 cups (180 g) butter
1 + 1/4 cup (275 g) sugar
1 + 1/4 cup (140 g) all purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C).
Grease 10 large muffin tins or cups or anything you like.
Break the chocolate into small pieces and melt it together with the butter over hot water or a bain marie :)
Beat the eggs with the sugar and then mix it with the flour. Take the melted chocolate mixture and fold it slowly into the mix.
Fill the cups with the mixture and bake at 350 F (180 C) for only 8-12 minutes. Like that, the outer part will be cooked and the inner part will be liquid! Hence the LAVA name *wink*.
Serve it HOT!!
You can dust it with icing sugar, serve it with custard, whipped cream or ice cream!
Let us know how it went!
Scuttlebutt and Prattle as always... at your services :)
