Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes
Detroit News, April 28, 2011
Gooey and decadent, these warm individual cakes with their saucy insides are
a can't-resist dessert for pitcher Roy Halladay. They are great for dinner
parties, too, because they can be made a few hours ahead and baked just
before serving. Don't worry if they get a little overbaked, you can serve
them as warm chocolate brownie cakes and no one will know the difference.
>From "Diamond Dishes" by Julie Loria.
.	12 tablespoons (11/2 sticks) unsalted butter, plus more for the
ramekins 
.	6 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped 
.	3 large eggs plus 3 large yolks 
.	1/3 cup packed light brown sugar 
.	1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
.	1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for the ramekins 
.	Vanilla ice cream, for serving 
Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees.
Lightly butter the insides of six 1/2-cup ramekins or custard cups. Dust the
insides with flour and tap out the excess flour.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Remove from the
heat and add the chocolate. Let stand 2 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
Beat the eggs, yolks and brown sugar with an electric mixer on high speed
until light in color and texture, about 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla. Add
the chocolate mixture, sprinkle with the flour, and fold together with a
rubber spatula. Divide evenly among the ramekins.
(The cakes can be prepared to this point and refrigerated for up to 4 hours.
Remove from the refrigerator 1 hour before baking.)
Place the ramekins on a baking sheet. Bake until the top of the cake looks
set and the center still jiggles a little when the baking sheet is shaken,
about 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let stand for 1 minute.
Carefully run a dinner knife around the inside of one of the ramekins. Place
a dessert plate on top of the ramekin. Invert the ramekin and plate
together, and give the pair a firm shake to dislodge and unmold the cake
onto the plate. Remove the ramekin. Repeat with remaining ramekins. Serve
the cakes at once, with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Makes 6 servings.

If we could look into each other's hearts and understand the unique
challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more
gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.
