Lava Cakes

When I saw these lava cakes in a magazine years ago I knew I had to try it. 

It... is.... soooo......yummy and you won't believe how easy it is too. 

 Love cake? Visit my favorite cake recipes page.



Lava Cakes




 Place butter and semi sweet baking squares in a bowl.


Melt in microwave 1-2 minutes and stir together.


Add powdered sugar and stir.


Add eggs and yolks and stir. 

   

 Add flour and stir. 

 

 

  Pour into greased custard cups or muffin tins.

    


Bake at 425. Muffin cups take about 8-9 minutes and the custard cups take 13-14 minutes.

 



Let sit 1 minute. Then dump out and devour! 

   


I like them best with a scoop of ice cream. The ooey gooey inside is the perfect chocolate fudge sauce. 

This would be the perfect Valentines dessert.
