Molten Lava Cake
As I was getting this post ready,I tried to recall when was the first time I tasted this beauty.I think it must have been Dominos Choco Lava Cake.I have ordered Pizza only so that I could have it,have to admit,they taste awesome.But I've got good news,not the obvious one hmpf--I can make better tasting Lava Cake--yes and that's what this post is all about!!
This month,Sweet Punch challenge is hosted by yours truly and I chose this super easy recipe from Showmethecurry.com.Despite being a very do-able recipe,this one scores points on the number of ingredients too.Just 5 ingredients and in under 20 minutes,you can get everything done from start to finish,isn't that great??
I was jumping in joy literally when the cake got baked and was smelling so good.I wanted a gooey molten center so I baked for a shorter time.After some pics,I took a deep breath and inverted the cake to a plate,waiting to see the molten center and when I saw it..God,just couldn't stop myself from having it,burning my lips and tongue in the process..hehe,still worth it!!Loved this month's challenge--truly a punch!!

Chocolate - 4 oz,113 gms
Butter - 4 oz,113 gms
Eggs - 2
Sugar - 1/3 cup
All purpose flour - 1/4 cup
Butter - for greasing the ramekins
Preheat oven to 180C.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler OR Microwave it for 2 minutes with 30 second intervals,checking in between.
Once the chocolate melts completely,mix in the butter and stir well-let it cool.
In a mixing bowl,beat eggs and sugar till light and fluffy.
Mix in the chocolate-butter mix and flour and beat well till you get a smooth batter.
Butter bottom and sides of your ramekins and pour the batter about 3/4 full.
Place the ramekins on a baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes,shorter for gooey insides and longer for stiff insides.I baked for 12 minutes.
Serve hot with whipped cream or Vanilla ice-cream.
