Molten Lava Cakes

Hi all !!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend ! We had a nice sunny weather here. We did not do much but most of all I've got to spent a lots of time with my sweet hubby :)
I was craving something sweet on Sunday evening and made this Molten Lava Cake. I have all the ingredients on hands except the orange liqueur ( Thank God for my pantry :)

Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
Prep Time: 30 min
Inactive Prep Time: -
Cook Time:14 min
Level :Easy
Serves:6 cakes


6 (1-ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
2 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
10 tablespoons (1 1/4 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 large eggs
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange liqueur


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Grease 6 (6-ounce) custard cups. Melt the chocolates and butter in the microwave, or in a double boiler. Add the flour and sugar to chocolate mixture. Stir in the eggs and yolks until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and orange liqueur. Divide the batter evenly among the custard cups. Place in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.
Since I don't have custard cups I put it in cup cakes pans and made half of the recipe ( made 6 cup cakes size ). I reduce the cooking time to 10 minutes. They were delicious !! I'm happy with the result. After all I had a great weekend with this sweet to ended it :)
