Chocolate Molten Cakes

This is my new favorite dessert to make! I got the recipe from my sister Kiley, who is a dessert specialist. It's originally a Martha Stewart recipe that I tweaked slightly. I’m not usually a huge baker, but this one turns out perfectly.

4 tbsp. butter, plus more for muffin tins
1/3 cup sugar, plus more for muffin tins
3 eggs
1/3 c flour
1/4 t salt
8 oz bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, melted

Preheat oven to 400°F. Generously butter 6 cups of a standard muffin tin. Dust with granulated sugar, and tap out excess. Set aside. In bowl, cream the butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. With the mixer on low speed, beat in flour and salt until just combined. Beat in chocolate until just combined. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. Place muffin tin on a baking sheet; bake just until tops of the cakes no longer jiggle when the pan is lightly shaken, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes. DO NOT OVERCOOK. To serve, turn out cakes, and place on serving plates, bottom sides up. Dust with powdered sugar.
Serves 6.

That sounds amazing. What I want to know is why I have never had this at your house? :-)

Looks delicious! How did you get your pictures to paste in? I tried doing that from the internet and it wouldn't work for me. Maybe it was the certain site I was on or something... I don't know.
