Filed under: Baked Goods, Dessert, Holiday - Valentine's Day, Romantic Recipes.

Chocolate molten lava cake. Drizzled with vanilla creme sauce and fresh strawberries.

2 Tablespoon cocoa powder
3 oz chocolate finely chopped
3 oz unsalted butter
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
3 oz sugar
1 1/2 oz cake flour

Butter baking dishes and dust with cocoa powder, tapping out excess cocoa. Melt chocolate and the butter in a double boiler, in an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Fold in the chocolate butter mixture. Add the flour and mix just until incorporated. Spoon batter into prepared dishes, filling no more than 1/2 full. Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes. The batter will hold for two days after it has been made. Bake for 8-10 minutes in 350-degree oven or until the top has a slight crack and the sides have set.
To serve carefully invert-baking dish on to plate and cake should slide out, serve with fresh berries or whip cream, ice cream and chocolate or vanilla sauce.
