Chocolate Lava Muffins
Fun and easy baking recipes are great to have in our recipe collections. This Chocolate Lava Muffins recipe is much like a chocolate cake recipe, but instead of baking a whole cake, the batter is put into a muffin tin. Serve these chocolate lava muffins out of the oven, letting them cool just long enough to maintain the creamy texture of the melted chocolate in the middle. Everyone will love having their very own personal sized chocolate cake to enjoy all to themselves. The perfect after dinner treat.

The printable easy recipes like this one will make it so easy to prepare all of your favourite desserts and keep a hard copy of them in your collection.
Makes 15 regular size muffins
1 cup butter, melted
8 ounces dark chocolate, grated 70% or higher
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Grease butter into a 15 hole muffin tray. Grease very liberally so it does not stick when you have to remove it.
In the top of a double boiler, or your favorite melting method, melt the chocolate, and stir in the butter.
Pour this into a large mixing bowl.
Sift in the flour and sugar and whisk together with melted chocolate.
Add eggs and keep whisking.
Pour mixture into prepared ramekins.
Bake for 9 minutes total.
Do not over-baked or you will not get the special melted center.
Remove and let sit to set on edges. Use a butter knife to help release after 5 minutes of cooling, and serve warm.
Serve warm with your choice of toppings. Ice cream is my favorite, but you could also add chopped nuts, melted chocolate or frosting.
