Wow! That picture’s bright enough to knock your socks off, isn’t it! 
It just shouts out….
Eat me!
Eat me!
Rah Rah!
Eat me!
No, I wasn’t a cheer leader in high school.
Those of you who know me from high school are nodding your head and thinking…
“Nope, no way (chuckle, chortle) that girl is not coordinated. Isn’t she the one with the husky male singing voice and really big feet?” 
Those two qualities alone do not a cheer leader make.
But if I could cheer for this fabulous Molten Lava Cake, I would!
 It is seriously like a party in your mouth my friends.
A fun old party. 
This recipe makes 8 ramekins full of heavenly chocolate bliss.
(You could easily 1/2 the recipe if you only want 4 ramekins full of chocolate bliss.)
 When your fork hits the center of the cake it just oozes out all over your plate….
I told you it was going to be a party in your mouth.
Molten Lava Cake
Yield: 8 Servings
Time: 40 minutes

 Recipe adapted from: Kraft Foods

8 squares Baker’s Semi Sweet Chocolate
1 C butter (2 sticks)
2 C + 2 T powdered sugar
4 eggs
4 egg yolks
1 t vanilla
dash salt
12 T flour

1. In a medium sized microwaveable dish melt your chocolate and butter. Heat it up in 1 minute intervals, taking it out and stirring between each interval.
2. When it’s nice and melted stir it all around to incorporate the butter into the chocolate.
3. Add the powdered sugar and stir to incorporate.
4. Add the eggs and egg yolks and blend them in with a wire whisk. Add the vanilla and salt and stir.
5. Stir in the flour.

6. Generously butter the insides of the Ramekins.
7. Pour the batter into the cups.
8. Bake at 425 degrees for 13 to 14 minutes. You want the out sides to be firm, but the center to be soft. Take them out of the oven and let the cute little darlings just sit there for a minute or two.
9. Run a knife around the edge of the dish and turn it upside down on your serving plate. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
Enjoy the party!

  1. I'd use the ramekins for trying out this yummy lava cake recipe you just posted (!!!) and also for French Onion Soup. Probably in that order, too. 🙂

  2. I would love to make creme brulee in them..The burnt sugar on top of the cream –yum.

  3. I'd make your molten lava cake of course:) Or I have a recipe for cake in a mug..this would do nicely. Any which way I would be using them often!

  4. I would love to try out the molten lava cake with these darling ramekins. It would also be fun to try some chicken pot pies. YUMMY!

  5. Hi there I was so excited to see this post. I am Angie Alm's Sister in law and I love your Blog but I was so excited about this Molten LAva cake and dishes. My mouth is watering. My cute son and I love going to Chili's to eat their Molten Cale and he has requested that I figure out a way to make it like that or better for his Birthday. Well I am in luck because I can try this and hopefully win a dish or two. Keep up the good work.


  6. by midnight??? Wednesday?? Hmmm.. that's an hour from now, so maybe I won't be the absolute last one to leave a comment. Hopefully~

    I would use these darling dishes to hold ice cream while eating in front of a Jazz game (or Pittsburgh Penguins!) – but I would only need two, so if there's a set of 4, I'd use the other two to grow some gorgeous strawberry plants!!!!! (I have NO dirt to plant anything in outside, it's all cement. Which is not a complaint, I'm grateful for the cement at this time, so it's simply an observation – I gotta get something to grow strawberries in!)

    Great website, thank you for all the work/play you do here!

    p.s. I will most certainly make this Lava Cake, but definitely plant strawberry plants too~

  7. About how many grams/pounds of semi sweet chocolate is that? I want to buy bulk semi sweet chocolate from Trader Joe’s (they have 5lb packs for $5 each, killer deal).

    I’ve been following your blog for at least a year now. I’m not even a recipe blog person, but I can’t live without your recipes. =)
