Wow. This recipe is fantastic. My guests absolutely raved, and some had had molten lava cakes in restaurants many times and said they were the best they’d ever had.
I used 6 oz ramekins, 4 eggs, unsalted butter (but added a ¼ teaspoon of salt), and a pinch of cinnamon. I made them the day before my dinner party and kept them chilled until about 15 minutes before baking. They needed 12 minutes to bake. I used shortening to grease the ramekins so they’d be sure to pop out easily, which they did. Two that were less done than the others needed to have some of the goo spooned out, but all held their shape nicely. I skipped the fruit and served them with vanilla ice cream and garnished with a sprig of mint and a sprinkle of shaved chocolate. Fantastic presentation. Definitely agree that you have to use quality chocolate for quality results.
