White Chocolate Lemon Lava Cake

These White Chocolate Lemon Lava Cakes take less than 30 minutes to make and only a handful of ingredients!














I apologize for my lack of new recipes.

I have made so many delicious things these past few days, but I lack the proper lighting to share my great-ness.

But this one I felt like I had a duty to share.

Trust me, this is so worth it!

(Disclaimer: If you’re not a fan of white chocolate, it’s simple to turn this into a chocolate lava cake) {But really…who doesn’t just love white chocolate?}














You’ll need 4 ounces of White Chocolate (four of these cute little blocks will do)














And a whole stick of butter {you’re worth it}.














In a microwave bowl add the butter and white chocolate.

Microwave for 1 minute and 20 seconds.














Just long enough to melt the butter.

The use a whisk to blend the butter and chocolate together.














Next add 1 cup of powdered sugar














Whisk together, until smooth. {don’t be like me…whisk it better}














Add 3 whole eggs and 1 egg yolk. Again…whisk away!

You should be getting a good forearm workout!

You’ll need it after you eat this little beauty.














Add 6 tbsp of flour, and your lemon zest. {if you’re not into lemon, just skip this part}














Also, if you’re planning on just regular chocolate cake, you can omit the lemon too.














You’ll need these cute little Pyrex custard cups, or something similar. Something that can be put into the oven.














Have at these guys with Pam, or your preferred non-stick spray.


Have at it! {íf you don’t get them good, you’ll regret it when the cake is done baking}














Pour the batter in evenly to the cups.














Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Bake for 13-15 minutes.

They’ll be slightly browned on top, firm on the sides, and still soft in the center.

Not liquid, but just soft.














Let them sit for just a minute or two.

Then grab one with a towel.














Place an upside down plate on top…














Hold onto the plate and the cup and invert the cake.














This is where you’ll be cursing yourself for not using enough spray… {can’t say I didn’t warn you}














If you did use enough spray, the cake will just slide right out…

Ain’t she a beauty?














Add a little ice cream…or a lot…














Take a bite…and never look back.

These are so simple and irresistible to make.

Like I said…I made these 4 nights in a row! {and now I am working out 4 days in a row}
