Molten Lava Cake Recipe

Make your mom smile this Mother’s day with this crazy good Molten Lava Cake Recipe!  Never hurts to make one for yourself too (I call it quality control!):

Molten Lava Cake Recipe

150 grams Valrhona Manjari Chocolate (available at JACEK Chocolate)
100 grams unsalted butter
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 tablespoons flour, sifted
Vanilla bean ice cream

Preheat the oven to 350F.  Gently melt the chocolate and the butter in a saucepan over low heat, while stirring continuously.  Place the eggs, yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk until pale.  Gently fold in the flour and the chocolate mixture (do not overmix!) and spoon into 4 lightly greased 1 cup capacity oven proof dishes.  Bake for 12 minutes or until the puddings are puffed.  Let cool until warm, and serve with a dollop of ice cream on top.  Enjoy!
