Recipe: Sea Salt Chocolate Molten Cakes

You know my love for sweet and salty combinations seen here & here. I was dying to make these sweet little treats ever since I discovered them on one of my favorite blogs Sugarlaws. They were the perfect addition to our family dinner last Sunday.

INGREDIENTS
  • 9 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 6 tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp Kahlua
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt, plus additional for the tops of the cakes


DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter two six-muffin tins, and dust the insides with sugar.
  • On a double-boiler, melt chocolate until smooth, stirring to ensure everything melts. Set aside to cool.
  • In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, and Kahlua. Add the eggs, one at a time, until all of them are incorporated. Beat in the chocolate and flour and pour the batter into the muffin tins, about 3/4 full. Sprinkle sea salt over the tops of the muffins. Bake for 9-10 minutes, allow to cool, and turn cakes out onto serving plates.
I love to cook but baking...not so much! One of my resolutions this year is to bake more and I can check this successful recipe off the list. Next up are these!
