Lava Cakes For Two

Valentines Day is coming. If you are planning a nice dinner at home, don't forget about dessert! An impressive dessert doesn't mean making a huge cake (that you will eat for days) or spending hours of your time. These molten cakes for two take about 5 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to bake. They are rich and decadent, and the perfect Valentine's Day dessert. Either using the recipes below or changing the flavours with different baking chips, surely you can find one to suit you and your sweetheart.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Molten Cakes

2 eggs, divided
2 Tblsp white sugar, divided
4 Tblsp butter (plus more for greasing)
3 Tblsp chocolate chips
3 Tblsp peanut butter chips
4 tsp flour, divided (plus more for dusting)

Grease and flour two 3-inch ramekins. Place on a baking sheet and set aside.

Whisk one egg with 1 Tblsp white sugar. Combine very well until light in colour. Place chocolate chips and 2 Tblsp butter in a microwave safe bowl, and heat for 20 seconds. Stir well to combine and melt chocolate. Heat longer if necessary to completely melt the chocolate. Add chocolate/butter and 2 tsp flour to the egg/sugar mixture. Whisk to combine. Divide between the two prepared ramekins.

Repeat this process to make the peanut butter layer. Whisk one egg with 1 Tblsp white sugar. Combine very well until light in colour. Place peanut butter chips and remaining 2 Tblsp butter in a microwave safe bowl, and heat for 20 seconds. Stir well to combine and melt chips. Heat longer if necessary to completely melt. Add melted peanut butter chips and remaining 2 tsp flour to the egg/sugar mixture. Whisk to combine. Divide between the two ramekins, pouring on top of the chocolate layer.

Bake at 450` for 8-10 minutes. The sides will be set, but you want to center to still appear sunken and jiggly. To serve, invert ramekin on serving dish. Dust with icing sugar or serve with a scoop of ice cream. Serve immediately.
