Chocolate Lava Cake
Every Valentine's Day I pretty much ignore the holiday (and the sight of everyone wearing too much pink and red), but get tempted into participating at the last minute by a recipe. That's how those red velvet cupcakes happened.
This year my eye was caught by another Budget Bytes recipe, a chocolate lava cake that only takes twenty minutes and five ingredients. I've tried to make lava cake in the past, but ended up with slightly burnt cake floating in a pool of liquid chocolate, so I figured this was a good time for another go. I think a smaller ramekin than I used would be preferable, as my cakes came out rather flat, but they were pretty delicious as well. I used my hex to make powdered sugar polka dots on top. You can see the original recipe here.
