Molten Lava Cakes

I love these little babies. Surprisingly, this has been the first time I’ve ever made them myself. While preparing these Chocolate Lava Cakes I learned that they are super-fun to make. They are also surprising. That is what you find out when you dig into them. And, with the generous amount of chocolate they contain, I’m sure they are just super seductive. That all makes them the perfect dessert choice for Valentine’s Day, don’t you think? Now, let me invite you to my kitchen and show you how I prepared my version of these adorable sweet cakes… Here’s what we need. Couldn’t be simpler. 1. 2. I’ve used 6-ounce (180 ml) ramekins. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Let cool slightly. And be strong! 8. 9. 10. I only have two, so I had to bake in two batches. 11. 12. 13. Too long. Although nice and tasty, they weren’t that ‘molten’ in the center. I baked the second batch for only 10 minutes. That was much better. I really like the moist center. Aah, I love this game. 11 minutes would make them absolutely perfect.

Cinnamon Apple Pecan Crumb Bars Mmm... gooey apple cinnamon deliciousness! We’re eating cinnamon apple pecan crumb bars made with local fuji apples and drizzled with cream cheese cinnamon icing. Every year apple season (aka fall) brings with it a wave of nostalgia, and I can’t help but reminisce about the autumns of my youth. Growing up in Virginia fall meant the leaves turned from green to lovely shades of vibrant orange, red, yellow and deep purple. Mint Chocolate Chip Cake Chocolate cake and I have had a very interesting romance. I started off with quite an intense dislike of chocolate cake. I KNOW. But try not to judge me too harshly, I had many bad experiences with store-bought dry, dense mudcakes covered in grainy baking chocolate icing.
