Chocolate Molten Lava cake

This Chocolate Molten Lava Cake is so ideal for Valentine's Day and for that matters -  any week.  It is so easy and so devilishly delicious!   I wanted something chocolaty, rich and yummy-gooey and this chocolate cake  melts in your mouth and melts your heart!

 Chocolate Molten Lava Cake

1 1/4 sticks butter
4 (1 oz) squares semi-sweet chocolate
4 (1 oz) squares bittersweet chocolate
1 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup King Arthur's flour
3 large eggs
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoon  coffee or orange liquor, optional
 unsweetened cocoa for dusting the custard cups


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Grease 6 (6-ounce) custard cups. Dust with unsweetened cocoa
  •  Melt chocolates and butter in the a nonstick saucepan by using medium low heat. Just enough so that the chocolate is softened. Take it away from the heat. Stir until smooth.
  • Stir in the sugar and flour to chocolate mixture.
  • Stir gently in all the eggs and extra yolks until smooth.
  • Stir in vanilla and/or orange liquor until well combined.
  • Divide batter evenly among custard cups.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes.
  • Edges should be firm but the center will be soft and jiggly. Run a knife around the edge to loosen and invert onto dessert plate. Serve with ice cream or whip cream or dust with confectioner's sugar.
