These extra-moist chocolate lava mini-cakes are made just for two people and take 25 minutes start to finish—just in time for Valentine's Day.
Preheat oven to 200°C.
Melt the chocolate. I used to do it on the stovetop. However, it is much faster in the microwave. Put it into a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30-second intervals so that the chocolate doesn't burn.
In a medium bowl, mix the softened butter, vanilla and sugar and beat until creamy.
Mix in the eggs until smooth (you can save the other egg white for another recipe or a healthy breakfast).
Add in the flour until smooth and finally add in the melted chocolate.
Grease 2 ramekins with some butter. Place a round piece of baking paper at the bottom of each.
Pour in the chocolate and bake for at least 12 minutes, up to 18 minutes.
Invert on a plate and knock the ramekins until the cakes come loose. Sprinkle powdered sugar if desired and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
