This month's challenge is Chocolate Lava Cakes, you know like the fancy schmancy kind you get at nice restaurants. The picture on her blog? Gorgeous!! So, of course, I had to jump on in and give it a shot!!!
And this is what came out of my oven....
Chocolatey deliciousness!!! They got a little dark around the edges (I cooked them 8 minutes), but they came out of the muffin pan pretty easily since I greased them with Crisco and dusted with cocoa powder first. It would've been MUCH easier to get them out if I had the ramekins like Sally used. But she said we could use muffin tins if we didn't have ramekins.
And this is how I served them up. A dollop of ice cream on top. Mmmmm. And when you cut into them, the chocolate lava inside oooooozes out. VERY tasty! And WAY easier than I figured they'd be- only 6 ingredients, too!!!
They were VERY rich (yet not overly sweet) and I've got a major sweet tooth. When they first came out of the oven, I thought "Oh, they're small. I'll have two." HA! Wrong!! The rich chocolate flavor of one was just enough for me.
So, any of y'all want to take Sally's baking challenge??? You won't be sorry!!!
