Molten Chocolate Cake
This molten chocolate cake recipe is one of my favorite desserts. It simple melts in your mouth and is amazing with the vanilla custard sauce recipe.
  1. Butter and flour eight 5-6oz ovenproof custard cups or ramekins.
  2. Melt Chocolate and butter over hot water in a double boiler; cool slightly.
  3. Beat eggs, yolks and sugar with electric mixer on medium high until pale yellow (about 10 minutes).
  4. Reduce speed and add flour gradually.
  5. Add melted chocolate and beat until glossy (5 minutes).
  6. Pour mixture evenly into prepared cups.
  7. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 minutes or until set around edges but centers still move slightly.
  8. While still warm, turn out of custard cups upside down onto plate or serve in ramekins.
  9. Dust with confectioners sugar and serve immediately over Vanilla Custard Sauce if desired.
  10. To make ahead, fill ramekins and refrigerate up to 8 hours; add about 5 more minutes to baking time.
