Individual Warm Chocolate Cakes filled with chocolate sauce

These are amazing. I needed to make an easy dessert for Jim because I had made flan for everyone else and he doesn't like flan. So I took our favorite brownie recipe and turned it into warm chocolate cakes that ooze chocolate when they are cut into--unbelievably good!

Makes 7

2 oz Unsweetened chocolate
1 stick Unsalted butter
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 cup All-purpose flour
1/4 tsp Salt
7 chunks of German's Sweet chocolate

Preheat the oven to 325 F. Line 7 cupcakes with cupcake liners & lightly spray with Pam.

In a heavy saucepan, melt the chocolate with the butter over low heat, stirring
completely melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar. Add the eggs and
vanilla beat well. Stir in the flour, salt and mix well.
Spoon the batter into the cupcake tin until half full. Put 1 piece of the German's Sweet Chocolate into each cupcake. Then spoon batter over chocolate. The cupcakes should be almost full, and the chocolate chunk should be completely immersed. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes and remove from cupcake molds. Turn upside down on a plate, peel off cupcake liner, & sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

If you want to do these ahead. Let them cool completely, but leave in cupcake tin. Then reheat at 350 for 5-10 minutes.

  1. Five Stars for these. Just a bit of heaven oozing warm chocolate from the center when you put your fork into the cupcake. Loved them.
