Chocolate lovers, this one is for YOU! I make this for my husband on very special occasions such as Valentine's Day. It is wonderful but so easy. We are having guests this weekend and we are going out to a very exclusive restaurant here in Shreveport, but we will be coming home for this dessert.

We love molten cakes in the Test Kitchen. They're not only decadent, but they are also easy to make. So we were big fans of Debbie's chocolaty recipe. The outer edge is crunchy and the center is warm and oozing chocolate. What's there not to love about this easy dessert recipe? This will be great for a special dinner... or just when you want a heavy dose of chocolate. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Burning Love Molten Chocolate Cakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 6 (6-ounce) custard cups. (I just spray with cooking oil.)
  2. Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave in a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl. When melted, remove from the microwave. Mix the sugar and the flour into the melted butter and chocolate on low speed.
  3. Add the eggs and egg yolks. Continue to mix on low speed until well blended. Add the vanilla and set aside.
  4. Divide batter evenly among custard cups. Set on a cookie sheet and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 14 minutes. IMPORTANT!!! Be careful not to overbake. Edges should be firm but the center will be runny.
  5. Run a knife around the edge to loosen and invert onto a dessert plate.
  6. Garnish as desired. I prefer to sprinkle with confectioner sugar and set a strawberry by the side. My husband likes raspberries and a dollop of whipped cream with his. I have a friend who likes his sprinkled with confectioner sugar and then sprinkled with chopped pecans. The possibilities are endless so just let your creative juices flow. Enjoy!!!!
