The kids wanted those stupid Molten Lava Cakes that they get when we go out to eat sometimes.  I told them we’d make them tonight.  So easy!
I used Paula Deen’s recipe here.  (Thank you Paula and the Food Network!)
Talk about bad for ya! Don’t think this on is on “Lose It.”  I won’t be able to eat anything tomorrow!

Molten Lava Cakes 

(Makes 6)


  • 6 (1-ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate

*I didn’t have bittersweet chocolate, so I used chocolate chips and some unsweetened dark chocolate to equal 8 ounces. 

  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur  (*I was out so I used good rum instead.)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Grease 6 (6-ounce) custard cups. Melt the chocolates and butter in the microwave, or in a double boiler. Add the flour and sugar to chocolate mixture. Stir in the eggs and yolks until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and orange liqueur. Divide the batter evenly among the custard cups. Place in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.
