Chocolate Lava Cakes

Yield: 8-12 servings

1 pouch Cup4Cup Chocolate Brownie Mix
3 large eggs
3 large yolks
½ cup butter, melted or coconut oil
¼ cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Method of Preparation:
1. Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl. Whisk to incorporate well.

2. Spray 8-12 4-oz. ramekins with non-stick pan spray. Scoop batter into the ramekins about 2/3 of the way up.

3. Bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 8-10 minutes, just until the outside of the cakes are set but the center is still gooey.

4. Remove from the oven. Working quickly, carefully loosen the sides of the cake from the ramekin with a small spatula. Invert the ramekins upside down onto a plate(s). Tap the bottom and shake it lightly to release the cake from the ramekin.

5. Sprinkle the tops with powdered sugar and serve immediately.

We recommend using butter to get the best flavor and texture. Coconut oil is an acceptable substitute. We do not recommend substituting canola oil for the butter.
