Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes

Chocolate Lava Cakes are one of my family's favorite treats.  The chocolate really does come gushing out of it!
Here's what you need to make them:
  • 4 buttered ramekins placed on a cookie sheet  
  • 4 squares  Semi Sweet baking chocolate (I use Bakers brand)
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1 c powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 6 T flour
Preheat oven to 425
I usually do this part in my 8 cup pyrex measuring cup.
Microwave the chocolate and butter on high 1 minute or until butter melts then stir until choc. melts
Stir in sugar until well blended, whisk in eggs and yolks
Stir in flour, divide into cups

Bake 13-14 minutes or until sides are firm and center is soft. Let stand 1 minute, run small knife around the edge of cakes to loosen then invert cakes onto dishes. Top with whipped topping or ice cream.
