More good stuff - Gooey Chocolate Cake
I have been CRAVING that Texas sheet cake I made last week so I needed something tonight, but I didn't want something that would linger around the house for me to eat and eat and eat. I have a recipe from the Kraft foods website that I was going to make for Valentine's day. It's for Molten Chocolate cake and it looked so good and so easy. But on Valentine's Day my mom invited us over for her super delicious chocolate cake (seriously what is it about my family and chocolate?) so I never got to make the Molten cake. Well, tonight was the night. I mixed it up while Logan watched and before I knew it the cakes were ready. I sprinkled some powdered sugar on they looked so cute. But when I cut into mine....mmmm! The middle was all oooey, gooey melty chocolate. They were so good! And so easy! The boys loved it (Trevor said because I made such a good treat I got to do whatever I wanted all day tomorrow) and Logan was practically licking his plate clean. If you make this you might want to use pretty plates. This picture is Trevor's cake, so that is why we have the purple plastic plate. But whatever plate you serve it on, it's delicious.
4 squares Baker's semi-sweet chocolate
1 stick butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 egg yolks
6 tablespoons flour
Heat oven to 425. Grease 4 small custard cups and place on a baking sheet. Microwave the chocolate and butter for about a minute. Stir to melt the chocolate. Stir in sugar. Add eggs and flour. Divide batter evenly in the 4 cups. Bake 13-14 minutes. Let stand 1 minutes and then invert onto serving dish.
That's it! Easy, huh? And if you go to the Kraft foods website they have a video to show how to make it. Go here to see the video.
