Molten Chocolate Cakes

Alycia, my sister, found this recipe somewhere and we usually have it with ice cream. Last Sunday I just had to have a molten cake so we tried it with fresh strawberries and melted white chocolate on top. The strawberries were fabulous with it because it was like eating chocolate covered strawberries. You really couldn't taste the white chocolate but it looked pretty.

4 squares Semi-sweet baking chocolate
½ cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
6 tbsp flour
Whipped topping or homemade whipping cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 Butter 4 (3/4) custard cups or soufflé dishes. Place on baking sheet.

Microwave chocolate and butter in bowl on high for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir with a wire whisk until all the chocolate is melted. Stir in sugar until well blended. Whisk in eggs and egg yolks. Stir in flour and divide batter between prepared cups.

Bake 10-14 minutes or until sides are firm but centers are soft. Let stand 1 minute and carefully run knife along the edges and invert onto plate. Top with topping and serve warm.
