Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 tbsp Kahlua liqueur
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup confectioner sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Butter the insides of each cupcake mold.
  3. Chop chocolate and place in microwavable dish. Add butter and cream. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until chocolate is melted. Add Kahlua and stir until smooth.
  4. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature, add the eggs and egg yolks and stir. Sift sugar and flour into a large bowl. Stir in the chocolate mixture until well incorporated.
  5. Pour batter into each cupcake mold until ¾ full.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the sides and top have formed a shell while the centers remain gooey.
  7. Cool for a few minutes before removing cakes by flipping the pan upside down on a platter. Dust cakes with sifted confectioner’s sugar and serve while still warm.
  8. For an even more decadent dessert, serve the lava cakes with fresh whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla bean ice-cream.
