Molten Chocolate Cake

A month or so ago Spencer and I splurged on dessert and split a Chocolate Lava Cake from Dew (a restaurant in Provo). I have been wanting more ever since. I decided Mother's Day was the day I was going to try this recipe from Epicurious. The cakes turned out really well. I substituted 1 tsp almond extract for the brandy and left the espresso powder out all together. I served them with a very generous dollop of sweetened whip cream on the top. I used the semisweet chocolate chips and it was really good, but next time I think I will use quality bittersweet chocolate for even more chocolate goodness. I hope you had a Happy Mother's Day!!

Looks really good. I guess we'll be having a chocolate week around here, with the ancho chili pie, and these yummy things... I usually like anything that is baked in a ramekin! I also need to be making rhubarb desserts. Who is going to eat all of these things? Me, I guess :)
