NoTimeToCookDinner's picture
As you take your first bite, you discover an added bonus, a molten river of dark chocolate cascading from the center. Sounds amazing, right? It is!
Ingredients
  Powder sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), for dusting
  Egg yolks 4 Large
  Whole eggs 4 Large
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Bittersweet chocolate 1⁄2 Pound, chopped
  Cake flour 1 Tablespoon
  Vegetable spray 1 Can (10 oz)
  Unsalted butter sticks 2
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using vegetable spray, grease (6) 6-ounce ramekins and dust with cake flour. In the top of a double boiler, melt butter and chocolate. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar, whole eggs, and egg yolks. Whisk in the cake flour. Evenly distribute the batter among the 6 ramekins, and bake for 10 minutes or until the sides of the cakes are set but the center still jiggles. Let the cakes cool for 2-3 minutes, then run a thin knife around the sides and invert onto plates. Garnish with powder sugar and serve with either vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
