This rich and dense chocolate cake has an alluring warm and gooey chocolate center that flows like lava when you break into the cake.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Generously grease 4 custard cups or ramekins.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt together the chocolate and butter on HIGH for 1 minute. Whisk together until completely melted and smooth.
  3. Whisk in the powdered sugar, then eggs and vanilla. Lastly, stir in the flour and salt until combined.
  4. Divide the batter evenly among the 4 baking cups.
  5. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the edges are firm and set, but the center is still soft.
  6. Let the cakes stand for about 2 minutes before carefully running a knife along the edge of the ramekin and releasing the cake gently onto a plate.
  7. Serve with some fresh strawberries and a dusting of powdered sugar if desired. Enjoy warm.

Notes

To make in advance: Bake just until the edges are set, then re-heat in the microwave for 30-60 seconds to warm up before serving.
