Valentine's Day

So, I have never claimed to be a girly girl. Valentine's Day is kind of lumped into that. We rarely put much thought into it. Usually the thought is- we can go out to dinner- I guess. It just isn't a big deal. For instance- this year I decided to make our favorite dinner (roast beef, rice, squash casserole, carrots, and gravy) and just stay home.

Even worse than that? For a gift I bought my husband 28 Days Later- so our "Valentine Day" consisted of watching zombie movies. Like I said- I am not exactly the normal girl. Anyway, the one thing I did plan on was recreating our favorite dessert from our honeymoon.

Seriously, look at his creepy face. He is telling me to stop taking pictures so he can eat his amazing Warm Chocolate Melting Cake. It was basically the highlight of my trip- and I wish I was kidding!

Warm Chocolate Melting Cake

6 oz. dark chocolate
6 oz. butter
4 eggs (room temp)
3/4 cup sugar
4 Tablespoon flour

1. Melt your butter and chocolate in a saucepan. And because I am lazy there was no way I was going to make a double broiler- and it worked just fine!

Cook till it is becomes chocolaty gooey-ness. Attempt not to eat the chocolate....

Combine your eggs and sugar and whisk for a few minutes. Or be lazy (I am sensing a theme here) and use your kitchen aid mixer to do the hard work.

Add your flour and mix together again. 

Mix in your chocolate/butter mixture with the rest of the ingredients. I suppose at this point you should also scrap down the sides-since obviously I have not.

Pour the batter into 4 greased ramekins. Bake at 390 for 14 minutes. Now- the cake is supposed to have a gooey center. You should basically be eating warm batter here people- enjoy it. I will admit that mine had to be popped back into the oven for a bit because they were complete soup but the finished product:

was literally amazing. Oh- and please eat it with vanilla ice cream. I mean I can't force you, but you are sinning without the ice cream- and well I can't control what God may do to you.

Ok- so I may or may not get a little serious about my sweets.

Enjoy! It is so easy and so yummy in my tummy!
