I used to eat this at Chili’s years ago (years meaning 3-4 years ago) until I saw on Men’s Health magazine that Chili’s molten cake was one of the worst foods ever… But I think this is alright for me to eat because I haven’t had molten cake in a very long time AND I’m probably not going to eat this for another 3-4 years.
- 10 TBS unsalted butter
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup AP flour
- 1½ cups powder sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 TBS coffee liqueur/Kahlua
Preheat oven to 450ºF. Spray 6 ramekin dishes with butter spray or equivalent.
Melt butter over a pan on medium heat, once melted, put into a medium bowl. Melt chocolate chips in the same pan on low heat and once melted, add it to the bowl. Add flour and sugar to chocolate/butter mixture. Stir in the eggs and yolks until smooth. Add vanilla and coffee liqueur/Kahlua and mix everything until combined.
Divide the batter evenly among the each cups. Place ramekins on top of parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plate.
Optional finishing touches: sprinkle powdered sugar on top, add raspberries, strawberries, or anything.
