First in a series of decadent chocolate desserts
Chocolate lava cakes
9 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate (70% dark chocolate)
9 oz. butter (diced, room temperature)
6 oz. granulated sugar
4 oz. flour
2 oz. butter for ramekins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt chocolate on low flame in a double boiler.
Stir in diced butter until it melts.
In another bowl, beat eggs and sugar until the mixture starts to whiten.
Stir in melted chocolate and then the flour.
Butter 6 individual (may make a little more, depending on ramekin size), and pour in chocolate batter.
Cook for about 12 minutes.
