2nd attempt. Zero lava. Still really good flavor, but they did seem more like a brownie. I baked this batch for about 22 minutes. It's just really hard to see when they are done. The edges were bubbly. Don't know if it was the butter or if the boiling water (from the bath), but I was trying to wait for those bubbles to disappear.
Frustrated, I googled other recipes for lava cakes. Ingredients are all very similar to this recipe. But no water bath. No refrigerating before baking. In fact,the ones that offered you can refrigerate and bake the next day say to bring them to room temperature before baking. So, I am going to try again without the bath and without refrigerating before-hand.
1st attempt. The flavors were very good! I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate disks and Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa. The only problem is it was underbaked. I had them in the oven for 19 minutes. The bottoms were all liquid. I will make them again (they're easy enough) and bake them 22 to 25 minutes and see what happens. But the guys still loved it!
