For Valentine’s Day last week I made a lava cake for dessert. It felt so indulgent to pull a hot and gooey cake out of the oven and immediately dig in. Normally when I bake cookies I let them cool and wait until after dinner to take a bite, but that’s not how you do it with lava cake. Instead you immediately take a giant forkful, and guys it is so delicious! Since it was Valentine’s Day I used a heart shaped pan, but I’m definitely going to make this recipe again with individual ramekins.
Place 1/2 stick unsalted butter and 3 oz semi sweet chocolate together in a microwave safe bowl for 20 seconds. Stir and microwave in 20 second intervals until everything is combined and melted. Next, whisk in 1/4 cup confectioners sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Then add in 1 egg and 1 egg white, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 cup flour and a dash of salt. Bake at 450 for 9-11 minutes, so that it’s still jiggly. After 1 minute flip upside down onto a plate to remove the cake from the pan and then enjoy!!
