Chocolate Lava Cakes with Caramel Sauce

To be honest, I am not a huge fan of lava cakes, but my husband is.  So I make them occasionally for him O(∩_∩)O~

I add one square chocolate and one tablespoon homemade caramel sauce to each lava cakes.  So the lava is richer and creamier than before.  Chocolate and caramel complement each other in such a wonderful way that the cakes are so much tastier. 

Ingredients (for 4 lava cakes)

210 grams dark chocolate
1 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 large eggs
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 to 3 teaspoons coco powder (for the baking cups)
butter/ oil spray (for greasing the baking cups)
4 square dark chocolate bars
4 tablespoon caramel sauce



Preheat oven to 425F/218C

Beat eggs and egg yolks together.

In a large bowl, add butter and dark chocolate.  Heat the chocolate and butter in microwave oven or a double boiler until they completely melt. 

Add confectioners sugar.  Whisk them together. 

Add beaten egg mixture.

Whisk them togethe

Add shifted flou 

Whisk togethe

Grease the baking cups or ramekins with butter or oil spray.  Dust with coco powder .

The ingredients are for 4 lava cakes.  But this time I cut everything in half to make only 2 cakes. 

Spoon in the batter to fill half of the baking cups. Place one square chocolate bar in the middle of each cup. 

Add one tablespoon caramel sauce on top of chocolate.

Spoon in the rest of the batter.

Bake in the oven for 13 to 15 minutes.

Place them on a plate upside down.  Remove the baking cups.  There you have it, chocolate lava cakes with caramel sauce! 

Serve them immediately before they get cold and lava will not be runny any moreO(∩_∩)O~
