For my birthday this year I got a ten pound block of chocolate so I've been trying to figure out ways to use it up!  Chocolate lava cakes to the rescue.  Was a delicious fancy type dessert for our Christmas dinner.  Best of all, the batter can be made up ahead of time and then throw in the oven for 20 minutes when you're ready for a warm oozy molten cake.  Mine I made in jumbo muffin cup pans, but these babies are so so rich that the regular sized muffin pan is plenty.


Chocolate Lava Cakes

 
2 tablespoons of butter, melted
2 tablespoons of cocoa

3/4 cup of butter
12 ounce of chocolate chips (I used a kitchen scale and chopped semisweet chocolate)
1/2 cup of heavy cream
5 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup of flour
 
 
Prepare cupcake pans by coating the inside of each with melted butter by swirling it around. Then sprinkle the insides with cocoa, coating completely.  Tap the pan upside down once, to let any excess fall.

To make the batter, place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl, then top it with butter and cream. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until the chocolate is smooth and butter is melted. When chocolate has cooled slightly, stir in eggs, sugar and flour. Pour into prepared cupcake pans. Refrigerate for 1 hour (at least) and up to a couple of days.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes for regular 12/cupcake pan size, and 15-18 for jumbo 6/cupcake pan size, just until the outsides and most of the top have set, and the centers are still slightly runny. You can insert the tip of a knife to test. You just want a bit of the very center to be a thick pudding like texture. Let them cool for 5 minutes, then place a sheet pan on top of the muffin pan and invert them.

Serve with whipped cream, ice cream and/or dusted with powdered sugar or cinnamon.

Yum! I've done lava cake in the crock pot but never in a muffin tin. Thanks for sharing!
