Molten Lava Red Velvet Cakes

Beautiful ,romantic and delicious and perfect for February 14 ;)

6 tbsp unsalted butter
4 ounces white chocolate
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
1 tbsp red liquid food coloring
2 tbsp natural unsweetened cocoa powder
6 tbsp all-purpose flour

Set a rack in the center position and preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Spray 4 6-ounce ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.

Melt the butter and white chocolate in the top of a double boiler (or microwave in bursts of 15 seconds), stirring until smooth. When completely melted, stir in the confectioners' sugar.

Lightly whisk the eggs and egg yolks in a large bowl. Stir in the red food coloring and melted chocolate mixture.

Whisk the cocoa and flour in a small bowl to combine. Add to the batter and stir until just combined.

Divide the batter evenly among the ramekins. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake until the sides of the cake are set but the centers are still soft , 14 to 15 minutes. Let the cakes rest for 2 minutes, then invert them onto dessert plates.

Serve the cakes immediately. Use powdered sugar to dress it up or melted chocolate to garnish it. Enjoy!
