Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes

My most-fave homemade dessert, which has only six ingredients and is ready in 20 minutes, is made more than twice a week in the Hylden house.20140708-211928-76768876.jpg

Gather: 2 tablespoons Smart Balance or butter, 2 ounces chocolate (I use 85% cacao, but you can use your favorite), 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 whole egg, 3 tablespoons flour.

First, melt the butter & chocolate together in a small bowl and stir. Then add the sugar to the mixture and stir well. Next, add the egg–stir until the mixture changes texture, it will pull away from the side of the bowl. Add vanilla, if desired, then gently fold in flour–stir until just combined.20140708-211930-76770057.jpg
Divide between two greased ramekins (or teacups, or small bowls) and bake at 375 F for 13 minutes. Immediately remove from oven, invert a plate on the ramekin, and then invert the ramekin onto the plate–remove ramekin and serve.
