One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

Molten lava cakes

I love this time of year since we can eat and eat without it showing too much under our heavy winter sweaters and jackets. Rich desserts and favorite comfort foods sustain us through these wintery months. Last night we had a friend over for homemade pizza and molten lava cakes! These are to die for!!Recipe:
4 pieces (squares) Semi-sweet Baking Chocolate-I used 4 oz of semi-sweet chips
½ cups Butter
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 whole Eggs
2 whole Egg Yolks
6 Tablespoons Flour
2 cups Real Whipping Cream (seriously It's So Much Better!!!)
2 Tablespoons Sugar

The to dos:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Spray 4 custard cups with Pam and place on cookie sheet.
Microwave chocolate and butter in large bowl on high for about 1 minute, until butter is melted. whisk until chocolate is also melted.
Stir in sugar until well blended. Whisk in eggs and egg yolks. Stir in flour.
Divide between cups.
Bake 13-14 minutes until sides are firm and center is soft. Let stand 1 minute.
Combine sugar and heavy cream and whip until stiff.
Invert cakes on dishes and top with whipped cream
Enjoy! I know we sure did!
p.s. I stole this recipe from "The Pioneer Woman Cooks." I love her blog!
