A great way to warm up on a cold winter night is to eat a oozing chocolate lava cake. “If today was my last day on Earth, this would be dessert” – K. Enough said.

Ingredients:
3/8 c. flour
1/3 c. cocoa powder
2-1/2 tsp. espresso powder
3/4 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1/8 c. butter
1/2 c. egg substitute
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. brown sugar
1.3 oz. dark chocolate

Chop up the chocolate finely. Beat together butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and egg substitute. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, espresso powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix. Gently mix in the chocolate. Pour batter into six 4-oz. ramkins. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes depending on desired texture. After 12 minutes the cakes will have more lava in the center and after 14 they will be more firm.
