Molten Chocolate Cakes with Irish Cream
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, cut into chunks
2 large eggs
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
1 tablespoon Irish cream liqueur
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
8 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly butter four 4-ounce ramekins.
2. Place butter and chocolate in medium glass bowl; microwave on high for about 2 minutes, stirring twice, until butter and chocolate are melted.
3. Remove from microwave and let cool until no longer hot to touch. Add eggs, sugar and 1 tablespoon Irish Cream; beat with electric mixer until foamy. Beat in flour until just combined.
4. Pour equal amounts of batter into ramekins; bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until set around the edges and soft in the middle.
5. Let stand for 5 minutes, then invert onto 4 small plates. Pour 2 tablespoons of liqueur around each dessert. These are most delicious when served warm.
