Little Lava Cakes
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar plus extra for topping
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 6 eggs
Preheat oven to 400. Arrange 8 4-ounce mini mason jars on a baking sheet. Spray them with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small saucepan, melt butter and chocolate together. Stir until combined. Remove from heat.
Add powdered sugar and granulated sugar and stir.
Add vanilla and heavy cream and stir.
In a mixing bowl, add 3 whole eggs and 3 egg yolks. Mix until frothy, about 4 minutes. Fold into chocolate mixture.
Pour batter into mini mason jars, and bake for 15 minutes. The cake around the rim should be firm, but the middle still a little jiggly. Top with additional powdered sugar and serve warm.
These have even better flavor the next day, so plan ahead and just reheat. But it’s hard not to eat them right away!
