Molten Lava Cakes

Wow! It has been WAY too long since my last post. Can I blame it on being back in school?

Well, last weekend was Valentine’s Day. I’ve never been a fan of the holiday UNTIL last year, when my TYLER, my best friend, proposed! The day after, that is. Getting engaged on Valentine’s Day is SO cliche 😉

ANYWAYS…we kept Valentine’s Day low-key this year. It was Sunday, after all. Slept in, made pink heart pancakes, went to church, and made a fancy dinner afterwards. I was in charge of dessert, and I just HAD to go with these chocolate lava cakes from The Domestic Rebel, who has WAY better pics than I do . (I wasn’t planning on blogging this, but it was so delicious and split open so nicely, I just HAD to.)

They were SO good! Especially with the ice cream and homemade hot fudge 🙂 And super easy! These little individual cakes are sure to impress.

You will need:

  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 6 Tbs flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch salt
  • OPT: Ice cream and fudge for garnish

Melt chocolate and butter for 1 min until butter is melted and chocolate can be whisked into a smooth substance.

Add powdered sugar, eggs, yolks, and vanilla, stirring to combine. Then add flour and salt.

Pour batter evenly into 4 liberally greased ramekins. Bake on 425 degrees for 13-15 mins, until edges are firm and center is soft. Let cake stand for a couple minutes before carefully tipping upside-down onto a plate. Top with ice cream and fudge if desired. Serve immediately!

Cache Valley Bucket List: Clean the Sink at Angie’s

Where: Angie’s on Main Street in Logan

Cost: 12.99

I will confess, I have done this three times now. It’s ice cream, my favorite thing!

You go in to Angie’s. They’ll seat you and give you menus, but you just tell them you’re cleaning the sink and they understand.

The sink comes with lots of vanilla ice cream, two bananas, tons of whipped cream, and a cherry on top. You also get to choose three additional toppings. My favorite combination is chocolate syrup, caramel syrup, and oreos.

The sink can take anywhere from 2 to 6 people to finish it. I guess if you’re really ambitious you could finish it yourself! 😉 I’ve done it with 4 people, 5 people, and 6 people, and finished it every time, as well as felt stuffed every time.

This is one of those classic “you have to do this if you live in Logan” kind of things.
