I enjoy looking at the articles on Pinterest.  Periodically I get an email with a teaser photo.  This time I bit!  Look at this and tell me if it doesn’t spark an interest for you too?

I did all the heavy lifting.  I went to Closet Cooking and I found the recipe.

Molten Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cakes with a decadent warm melted chocolaty center.

Servings: makes 3 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


4 ounces bittersweet chocolate

1/2 cup unsalted butter

3 egg yolks

1/4 cup sugar

3 egg whites


  1. Lightly grease 3 ramekins with butter.
  2. Melt the chocolate into the butter in a double boiler and let cool a bit.
  3. Beat the egg yolks and sugar and mix into the chocolate.
  4. Beat the egg whites in a bowl until they form soft peaks.
  5. Fold the chocolate into the egg whites.
  6. Pour the batter into the ramekins, no more than 2/3 full.
  7. Bake in a preheated 400F oven for 7-10 minutes. The outside will be set and possibly crack and the inside will still be liquid.
  8. Let cool for a few minutes and then run a knife around the edges and tip onto a plate. (Optional; Feel free to eat it right out of the ramekin with a spoon.)

I don’t know about you but I am going to try this cake.
