My mother got a card with this recipe, and there is nothing on there for me to give proper credit. The recipe is too good not to share. My family and I really enjoyed it, and it was quite easy. I liked mine topped with ice cream and would consider adding shredded coconut, nuts, or liqueur next time I made these.
Also, I did get tagged a few times for a meme, I will do it, I just do not have time right now, I barely got this recipe out! Thanks for the attention and I will get back to you!!
Molten Lava Cake
4 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375. Melt chocolate and butter together, over double boiler (or take a pan of boiling water and place a bowl on top to melt them in together..and some might like to use a microwave). After they have both melted, take off the heat and add 2 tablespoons sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla. Mix.
Separate eggs. In separate bowl beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Add the 2 remaining tablespoons of sugar, beat about 2 minutes longer.
Fold in the egg whites into the chocolate until just combined. Get 4 ramikins, 6 ounces, and place on baking sheet. Divide batter between the ramikins and bake for about 22-25 minutes.
