Molten Lava Cake
Finishing up our Valentines dinner was a dessert so good, you wish that you could have two more. Gluttony aside, this desert was one of the greatest I've cooked, and I'm not a great dessert cook. When looking at the ingredient list, and seeing how its cooked, I'm surprised I haven't cooked this dessert more often. Here is what you will need:
3/4 cup nestle dark chocolate (53% cacao)
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
|In a double boiler, melt butter and chocolate.|
|Whisk sugar and eggs together. When thoroughly whisked, add flour and whisk well.|
|Add egg mixture to melted chocolate and fold together.|
|Take 4 small ramekins and grease well. Evenly place the mixture in each ramekin, almost to the top.|
|Place each ramekin in a 13x9 baking dish. Pour one quart of water in baking dish, covering 3/4 of ramekin.|
Bake at 390 degrees for 18 minutes or until top has set.
|Immediately place vanilla ice cream on top. In this instance drizzle caramel and sprinkle with coarse salt.|
