Molten Lava Cake
Makes 3 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
4 oz. Bittersweet Chocolate
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter
3 Egg Yolks
1/4 c. Sugar
3 Egg Whites
Lightly grease 3-4 ramekins with butter.
Melt the chocolate into the butter in a double boiler and let cool a bit.
Beat the egg yolks and sugar and mix into the chocolate.
Beat the egg whites in a bowl until the form soft peaks.
Fold the chocolate into the egg whites.
Pour the batter into the ramekins, no more than 2/3 full.
Bake in a preheated 400F oven for 7-10 minutes. The outside will be set and possibly crack and the inside will still be liquid.
Let cool for a few minutes and then run a knife around the edges and tip onto a plate. (I ate mine straight out of the ramekin with some vanilla icecream on the side!)
