Chocolate Lava Cake via the Dutch Oven

Well here is one of the recipes I have been working on to enter in the contest that I talked about before. it is made in a 6" Lodge Dutch Oven. It is a Chocolate Lava Cake and it is goooood! And it is small enough that you don't really get to over eat with it. Here is the recipe:

Dutch Oven Chocolate Lava Cake

6” Dutch oven


1 Stick of Butter (no margarine)

4 Squares of Bakers Chocolate (semi-sweet or unsweetened)

2 Egg yolks

2 Eggs

1 cup of powdered sugar

½ Cup of flour

1 Pinch of Cinnamon

In a sauce pan or another Dutch oven melt the butter and the chocolate. Stir until all the chocolate is melted. Take off the heat and add the egg yolks and eggs one at a time mix good, then add the powdered sugar and cinnamon and continue to mix, then the flour and mix. Mix it until all the white is blended in. Pour the mixture in to a greased 6” Dutch oven. (I have also used 2-5” ovens for this too) Cook with 10 coals on the top and 6 on the bottom for about 30-40 minutes. It should be cooked all the way around. Let it sit for a couple of minutes then run a thin knife around the edge and invert it on to the lid. Be sure and use hot pads or leather gloves. Then you can sprinkle some powdered sugar over the top. Cut it open and the chocolate will ooze out. Mmmmmmm….. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

Here are some pics:

Well that is it! Give it a try it is an easy one. You can cook it in ramekins in your oven in the house also. Set your temp to 425 degrees and cook for 15-20 minutes if you use a couple of ramekins.

It looks great but I need to make it for a bigger crowd. Could I double it and make it in a 12 inch oven?
