    This is a super easy and YUMMY cake recipe. It is a chocolate lovers dream dessert!

    If I do not have bittersweet chocolate, I just use all semisweet. I also use chips instead of the squares (it’s cheaper!!)

    Lava Cake
    •6 (1 ounce) bittersweet chocolate squares
    •2 (1 ounce) semi-sweet chocolate baking squares
    • 10 tablespoons butter
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
    • 3 large eggs
    • 3 egg yolks
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Preheat oven to 425°F Grease 6 (6-ounce) custard cups (I use the butter wrapper to grease mine).

    Melt chocolates and butter in the microwave or in a double boiler. Add flour and sugar to chocolate mixture. Stir in eggs until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Divide batter evenly among custard cups.

    Bake for 14 minutes. Edges should be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edge to loosen and invert onto dessert plate (or just eat them out of the custard cups).

    I serve this warm, sometimes with ice cream. They also keep well and microwave easy to make them warm again!
