Chocolate Molten Lava Cake

I felt like having a really indulgent dessert for my last night at home. Because my sister is quite the baker, we always seem to have exact ingredients on hand for all kinds of treats. So I decided to make Molten Lava Cake!

This recipe is from The Gourmet Cookbook (we got our mom the book for Christmas), page 700-something.

Got the chocolate loaded up in the double boiler (along with a little bit o' butta!) This particular recipe called for bittersweet chocolate.

Egg whites and sugar

Abra-Ca-dabra! (okay, a little deformed here...probably my fault)

Look what you missed, Avani! More for me!

Mom's Waffles

Hom nom nom...being at home is such bliss! My mom made chocolate chip waffles for me and my sister.

I don't have the exact recipe...but I have pictures to show for it!

Start with some flour...

I know I added EXTRA chocolate chips!

Waiting for the waffle iron to heat up....

My sister is making home-made whip cream

Yum Yum Yum! I love home! (Marya I know you will love this)

To top it off, we made some Marie Belle hot chocolate. Very indulgent. I.Love.Home!

Sooo I don't exactly have the recipe for this wonderful breakfast treat...I know my mom had some kind of waffle mix, to which we added milk, buttermilk maybe, probably some butter and eggs, and of course, the chocolate chips.

The hot chocolate was easy. Take the Marie Belle powder, add it to milk (it will be creamier) and heat in a microwave or stove top. It is so delicious that even little doggies who shouldn't be drinking it will poke their nose into the cup!
