Molten lava cake

As the name sounds....This is all you need to achieve heavenly bliss!!!!!!!
One can picture this cake, inverted and broken just to let the melted centre ooze out.
My littlest cousin is very fond of pastries and I could only think of him as I was making this. Here's for u Sandy!

The pics will be posted here soon!


1/2 C Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 tbs butter
1 egg + 1 yolk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 C confectioner's sugar, sifted
3 tbsp all-purpose flour, sifted

Preheat oven to 425 F and microwave butter and chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl for 45 seconds on high, then whisk until smooth.Add egg, egg yolk, sifted flour,powdered sugar and vanilla and whisk until smooth.Don't beat.

Grease individual tins with butter and flour the surface. Tap to remove any excess flour. Fill the molds/tins halfway and set in the oven for 13 to 15 mins. Remove while the centre is stil jiggly but the tops look done.

Let sit for 2 minutes then run a knife along the edges. Put a small plate upside down on top of the bowl and flip over. If you do it right, you should have a perfect looking upside chocolate cake that oozes chocolate when you crack it open.
