I dont bake a lot nowadays, but I have a huge list of bookmarked recipes waiting to be done someday. This one too, I had seen in some blog a couple of months ago . Finally ,when I got the time to bake this one , I had lost the link to the recipe and no amount of google search brought me to that particular recipe I wanted. Anyway, I found one quite similar to the one I had seen. I have always wanted to bake molten lava cakes and this is the first time I did so. We really enjoyed this one, little warm and just divine.I do have a few more similar kind of recipes in my mind And I hope to bake them one by one. Till that , try this one. Its easy- a good one for beginners too!!!

Molten chocolate cake recipe --step by step pictures
Boil 2 cups of water. Grease the baking dish.
In the baking dish itself, combine flour, sugar, cocoa and baking powder. Stir until mixed.
Mix until well combined and spread out.
Add vanilla to hot water. Pour over the top of the batter and "do not mix".(dont worry about this step!)
Bake at 350F /180c for 30 minutes.
Cool it a little and serve.Its better to finish on the same day.But I reserved a little in a air tight box in refrigerator. It was good the next day too.
You can make this ramekins also.
Mix in a shallow dish first and pour the batter in the ramekins. Later add the hot water and bake for 15 minutes.
If you wish ,you can sprinkle some brown sugar and chocolate chips on top before baking.
