molten chocolate lava cakes.

Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes from Kristen:

6 T unsweetened cocoa powder
6 oz bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup (1 1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
6 large egg yolks
3 large eggs
6 tsp all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar

Butter six 3/4 cup ramekins or custard cups. Whisk cocoa and sugar in small bowl to blend. Stir chocolate and butter in heavy small saucepan over low heat until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; whisk in cocoa mixture. Whisk in egg yolks, then whole eggs and flour. Divide batter between prepared ramekins. (Cake batter can be made 1 day ahead; chill.) Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake cakes uncovered until edges are set but center is still shiny and tester inserted into center comes out with some wet batter attached, about 22 minutes. Cut around cakes to loosen; turn out onto plates. Sift powdered sugar over cakes.
