Classic Chocolate Lava Cakes—mini cakes with molten chocolate centers!



  1. Melt butter and chocolate in a medium heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water; remove from heat. Beat eggs, sugar and salt with a hand mixer in a medium bowl until sugar dissolves. Add vanilla. Beat egg mixture into chocolate until smooth. Beat in flour till just combined.
  2. Before serving dinner, adjust oven rack to middle position; heat oven to 450ยบ. Line a standard-size muffin tin (1/2 cup capacity) with 8 extra-large muffin papers or use 3/4 cup capacity ramekins. Spray muffin papers with non-stick cooking spray. Divide batter among muffin cups.
  3. Bake until batter puffs but center is not set, 8 to 10 minutes. Carefully lift cakes from tin and set on a work surface. Pull papers away from cakes and transfer cakes to dessert plates.
  4. Serve with berries, mint and whipped cream if desired.
