Molten Chocolate Cakes Recipe

Updated on March 9, 2008

These individual cakes are out of this world. I like to make them when we have company over because they are easy to prepare, and everyone gets their own individual cake. They are fun to eat because the filling is warm and gooey. It gushes out when you cut the cake open, making it a favorite with children. Make sure you have all of your ingredients ahead of time and you will be ready to bake.

These little cakes taste great served with coffee, flavored if you prefer. Because they are rich and chocolaty, they also go great with a cold glass of milk. Chances are that you will be asked for the recipe, but you can choose whether or not to share it with anyone—you could make it your specialty if you want.


1 ¼ cups butter (2 ½ sticks)

¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips (dark chocolate would be good too)

4 medium eggs

½ cup sugar (I use organic, raw sugar)

¾ cup flour

12 caramel candies

¼ cup evaporated milk, divided


1. Preheat the oven to 325°. Grease 12 muffin cups.

2. Combine the butter and chocolate chips together in a double boiler. Cook, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is melted. Let stand to cool. You can also melt the chocolate chips and butter in a microwave. Use the defrost setting, stirring the mixture occasionally, for about 4 minutes.

3. In a large bowl, combine the eggs and sugar, and beat with an electric mixer at medium speed. This mixture should thicken in about five minutes.

4. Gradually add the flour, beating at a low speed. Add the chocolate, and beat until thick and glossy, about 3 minutes.

5. Fill the prepared muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake the cakes for 5 minutes.

6. In the meantime, combine the caramels and 2 tbs. of the evaporated milk in a double boiler. Cook, stirring constantly, until the caramels are melted. Spoon 2 teaspoonfuls of the caramel mixture into teach muffin cup.

7. Bake the cakes for another 8 minutes.

8. Invert the cakes onto individual serving plates.

9. Stir the remaining evaporated milk into the remaining caramel mixture. Serve this sauce with the warm cakes.

      It's Over ?This hurts because I still love my ex wife and we have cilrdhen together, but we have had our share of ups and down over the last 5 years. We have made up and broken up several times due to lack of communication. Whenever I want to talk about the problems she shuts down and nothing gets resolved. Either way I still love her she confessed that she still does as well however she has been talking to the new guy online (in whom she has never ever met before) who lives in Australia when we live in West Palm Beach Florida. I know that she is my ex wife but considering that I still love her it bothers me even though he is miles and miles away. Last night I went to spend time with the babies and I wanted to talk with her to find out what really happened and how come we never really tried to fix our relationship. She is mad with me because I have left many times and I told her the reason why I have left. The reason why I have left is because she takes me for granted and when I start to call her on it she shuts down because she thinks that Im either starting a fight (when all I want to do is fix things) or that Im insecure and that I just want to Nag . When she does this I get turned off and then communication goes out the window and we act like neither of us are there and then that's when I decide to leave and break up. So as I was saying last night I tried to speak with her about this issue and she looked at me and said it's over. So im like ok, we never cheated on each other the years, I put her before me in everything, with what little I had I gave, and I was her emotional and physical support whenever she needed me but it was not enough. And now she is chatting online with this guy who lives in Australia that she has never ever ever met and she says that it's over . What can I do to get her back. We have been here before and we reconcile but now she says it's over. When all I have ever wanted to do is fix our relationship and get back to that place we once had. I have tried to move on and date but its hard for me because she still has my heart, and it hurts to hear her say that its over and that she is talking to someone she has never met. I don't even know if he is a rebound guy, because he lives in another country! Is it really over?

      It is yummy. Next time I do it, I'm going to add a little almond extract. I think that will be really yummy.
