Alla of Alla’s Yummy Food swears her peanut butter lava cake is easy to make. (She always swears it’s delicious, but we can tell just by looking at it!)

You will need:

  • +¾ cup dark chocolate, chopped
  • +½ cup unsalted butter, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • Peanut butter (1 teaspoon per ramekin)
  • Cocoa powder and cooking spray, for “dusting” ramekins

+ Note: The dark chocolate and butter measurements have been converted from grams to cups, and are therefore approximate. (They are originally 200 grams and 100 grams, respectively.)
