*this recipe yields 6 jumbo cakes or 12 muffin size cakes
For pan coating:
-2 Tbs unsalted butter, melted
-2 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
-3/4 cup unsalted butter
-1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
-1/2 cup heavy cream
-5 large eggs
-3/4 cups sugar
-2/3 cups flour
Whether you use a jumbo muffin pan or a regular one, coat the inside of each one with the melted butter. Then sprinkle the inside with the cocoa powder. Set aside.
Place 3/4 cup butter, chocolate chips and heavy cream in large microwavable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each stop, until completely melted and smooth. Let chocolate mixture cool for about 5 minutes.
To it, add the eggs, sugar and flour. Mix by hand until well incorporated.
Pour batter evenly into prepared cups. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days (the mixture will look like set pudding).
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 450 F.
Bake cakes in preheated oven for 20 minutes for jumbo cakes or 10-12 minutes for regular size muffin pan. They are done when the middle looks like thick pudding. Do not overbake them!
Remove from oven and let them rest for 5 minutes.
Place a sheet pan on top of muffin pan and invert the cakes.
Serve hot with ice cream, whipped cream or just by themselves. Enjoy the oozy, chocolatey middle! Enjoy!
