Molten Lava Cakes For Two

Hello World! I haven’t written in a few days. Holidays are coming up and I had been visiting my family and getting ready for Christmas. Because of this, I have been serving foods, that I had previously frozen, from the freezer for dinner. Today, was another busy day, but I was happy to remember that I had frozen pizza dough (Dough Recipe Here!) and sauce (Sauce Recipe Here!). So, while I was out shopping, I picked up some fresh mozzarella and from my Aerogarden, I plucked some fresh basil and made pizzas!

After dinner, I was craving something sweet. I hadn’t planned on dessert (I had a few leftover desserts in the fridge, my husband and I already consumed). I wanted something quick and easy. Well, this recipe is not only quick but really simple and fast to clean up.


2 large squares of Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate (I used Ghirardelli)

1/4 cup of butter (4 tablespoons or 1/2 a stick)

1/2 cup of powdered sugar

1 whole egg

1 egg yolk

3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 425F
  2. Grease REALLY WELL, 2 oven ready custard cups.
  3. Place chocolate and butter into a microwavable container and microwave on high for 1 minute
  4. Whisk chocolate and butter, until chocolate is completely melted
  5. Whisk in sugar and flour
  6. Add egg and egg yolk
  7. Divide the batter between the two custard cups and place both custard cups in a baking tray
  8. Bake for 13-15 minutes (Sides are firm, center is soft)
  9. Let it stand for 1 minute and make sure that the cake has pulled away from the sides of the cup.
  10. Invert cakes on dishes and serve with (Whipped Cream) or French Vanilla Ice Cream
