Spiced Chocolate Molten Cakes

This splurge dessert is the kind you just have to linger over. Plunge your fork into one of the cakes and the chocolate and conversation start flowing. —Deb Carpenter, Hastings, Michigan
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dry red wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Additional confectioners' sugar


  • Preheat oven to 425°. In a microwave, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in wine and vanilla.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg, egg yolk and confectioners' sugar until thick and lemon-colored. Beat in the flour, ginger and cinnamon until well blended. Gradually beat in butter mixture.
  • Transfer to 2 greased 6-oz. ramekins or custard cups. Place ramekins on a baking sheet. Bake until a thermometer inserted in the center reads 160° and sides of cakes are set, 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let stand for 1 minute. Run a knife around edges of ramekins; invert onto dessert plates. Dust with additional confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately.

    This is absolutely wonderful... very decadent! I tripled the recipe to feed my family of five. All of us enjoyed it immensely (including our toddler).
