Dreamy Chocolate Lava Cake

Did I get your attention?
Warm Chocolate...
Now I know I have your attention!
You are 20 minutes away from bliss.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

1 stick of butter
4 TBSP cocoa powder
1 cup powdered sugar
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
6 TBSP unbleached flour

Whipped Cream:
Heavy whipping cream (yes you MUST make your own whipped cream!)
2 TBSP powdered sugar

Melt butter slowly in a pot. Add in cocoa and whisk until a beautiful dark syrup appears. Whisk in eggs, powdered sugar and flour. Pour into your desired greased baking vessel. I used silicon muffin pan and it worked just fine. Bake at 425 for 11-12 minutes. Do NOT go much longer or your gooey center will bake into cake. If the top is firm and cakey and the time is up then out they come.

Pour 2 cups heavy whipping cream into a mixing bowl. Sprinkle in powdered sugar. Beat on high until whipped yumminess. Top cake and devour... slowly.... with a big sigh.... after all the children are in bed! The only allowance for not making the whipped cream is if you happen to have some ice cream on hand.


  1. OMGoodness!!!!! I am speechless!!!

  2. Is not having a mixer a good enough excuse for not making whipped cream? Haha
