Chocolate Lava Cake

The hubby loves chocolate lava cake.  Any time we go out for dinner, I know it will be followed by chocolate lava cake.  I made this once for his birthday a few years back and never made it again.  How dare I?!  It is so easy to make and doesn't take a long time to bake.

By the way, I'll be making this for Valentine's Day <3

2 cubes of semi-sweet baking chocolate
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Grease 2 ramekins very well!  If you think you've greased it enough, grease it again.
  3. In a medium bowl, add chocolate and butter.  Microwave in 20 second intervals, mixing until the chocolate and butter are well incorporated.
  4. Add powdered sugar to butter and chocolate mix and mix well.
  5. Add in egg and egg yolk and mix until well incorporated.
  6. Add cinnamon and flour and stir.
  7. Distribute the batter evenly into the ramekins.
  8. Bake for 14 minutes.  Remove from oven and let stand for one minute.
  9. Carefully place a plate on top of the ramekin and flip over.  If you greased it well, the cakes will just slide right out.
  10. Top with some powdered sugar, ice cream or whip cream and enjoy!
Look at it!  It's smiling!! =)
