Warning: for seriously addicted chocoholics only!  These little dishes of dark chocolate perfection reveal their deep, voluptuous secret when you insert your spoon – a velvet-y rich and molten chocolate experience that quite possibly makes this dessert Better. Than. Sex. You be the judge, and take yourself and your taste buds to the next level. Enjoy!

Chocolate lava cake

2 large eggs and 1 large egg yolk

5 tablespoons margarine

3 tablespoons sugar

3.5 ounces of dark, good quality chocolate, preferably bittersweet

3 tablespoons flour

2 teaspoons powdered cocoa

pinch of salt

Break the chocolate into pieces, and place into a microwave safe bowl with the margarine. Microwave for 1 minute, remove from oven and stir melted ingredients together until thoroughly blended.

With a wire whisk, beat together the eggs and sugar for about 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the chocolate/margarine mixture, and mix well.

Sift the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, and fold in until uniformly blended.

Divide the batter evenly into 4 well-greased ramekins (they will be about 1/2 – 3/4 full), and place in the refrigerator for about an hour.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place the 4 ramekins into a baking dish that is about 1″ full with a hot water bath. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes.


Can be either eaten from the ramekin or inverted onto a plate. Dust with a little powdered sugar before serving.
