This Chocolate Lava Cake recipe is an amazingly easy and irresistibly inviting recipe to try. Its chocolate lava center oozes out chocolate when cut; take a bite and it will just melt in your mouth!
Ingredients
  Sifted cake flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dark semi sweet chocolate 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Eggs 3 , separated
  Cream of tartar 1 Teaspoon
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Heavy cream 2 Tablespoon
  Dark semisweet chocolate 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
Directions

Chocolate Lava Centers:

Heat heavy cream and pour over the chocolate pieces and whist until the mixture blends well.
Add butter to the mix and stir well.
Refrigerate the mixture and remember to whist it every few minutes to get a frosting like consistency.
Keep them refrigerated until ready to use. The mix should not get firm, rewarm the mold if it gets slightly firm and again refrigerate for a few minutes.

Cake Batter:

Melt chopped chocolate pieces and butter in a sauce pan. Remove from heat.
To this stir in vanilla extract and egg yolks (3) and keep stirring until the mixture is smooth.
Blend well the sifted cake flour.
In a metal bowl, whip egg whites until soft and add salt and cream of tartar. Also sprinkle sugar while stirring continuously.
Fold 1/3rd of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture using rubber spatula. Continue doing the same with the rest of the mix.
Pour the batter into large "non-stick" muffin tins, remember only to fill it ¾.
To create the molten lava center, push a Chocolate Lava Center into the center of each cake batter.
Bake at 375F degrees for 15 minutes. Over baking may spoil the cake.
Remove, wait 5 minutes, and unmold.

Looks like a great cake and I would like to make it but there are no amounts for the ingrediants. Why would anyone post something like this without them?????

Loving this recipe so much. I made it at my grandma’s house. The combination of recipes goes well with each other and the taste is certainly admirable.
