Ingredients you’ll need

- Dark chocolate: Coarsely chopped.
- Unsalted butter

How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Molten Cakes
To make these cakes, simply add the chocolate and butter to a large microwave-safe bowl and heat in 20 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth.
Add the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla, and whisk until combined.
Add the icing sugar and flour, and whisk until smooth and combined.
Divide the mixture between four greased 4-oz ramekins.
Add 1 heaped teaspoon of peanut butter to the centre of each cake, pressing down gently to almost submerge.
Bake for 12 – 14 minutes, or until the sides of the cakes are firm, and the centres are still soft and gooey.
Carefully run a knife around the edges of each cake, then turn them out onto serving plates. Serve immediately.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
