Minty Molten Chocolate Lava Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz. of Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter + more to butter the dishes
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar + more to sprinkle on top
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Peppermint extract (optional)
  • Chocolate chip mint ice cream and mint candies

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Butter (use actual butter, not baking spray) four ramekins like these.
  • Put the butter and the baking chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir with a whisk.  Repeat until the chocolate is completely melted and stir well to combine.
  • Add the peppermint extract if desired and stir well to combine. This will make the actual cake a little minty. If you’d rather ‘mint it up’ with just the ice cream and candies served with the lava cake you can do that too.
  • Stir in powdered sugar until well mixed.
  • Add the eggs and egg yolks slowly and whisk until well-combined.
  • Stir in flour.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the four ramekins.  I like to place them on a  baking mat on my baking sheet so they don’t slide around while I’m taking them in and out of the oven.
  • Bake in the oven for 14 minutes or until the outside edges look cooked through and the middle is still soft.
  • Cool for 1 minute.  If needed, run a knife along the outside edge of the ramekin to loosen the cake. Then flip it over onto a plate.
  • Sprinkle with a light dusting of powdered sugar to pretty it up! Then serve it with some chocolate chip mint ice cream and chocolate mint candy like Andes candies!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
