Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp instant coffee powder optional
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Butter two 6-ounce ramekins or oven-safe mugs and place on a baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Ina medium bowl add in the butter and chocolate and gently melt either in the microwave or over a ban-Marie.
  • Once melted, whisk in the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and coffee until well combined.
  • Stir in the flour and salt and mix until just combined. Evenly divide the batter between the two prepared dishes.
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes, or just until there is a jiggle in the center and the edges are set. A soft center ensures lovely lava on the inside.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to stand for 1 minute before carefully turning out each cake onto your serving dish. Enjoy immediately topped with some vanilla ice-cream.
