Just One Molten Lava Cake

I had posted an easy, just two cupcake recipe sometime back. Here is a chocolate version of it...a quick-fix for all chocoholics!!

What are you waiting for?? Dig in...!!! Ohhh!! the recipe?? It is as simple as 1-2-3.....Here it goes.....

Yield: 2 small cupcakes/ 1 jumbo muffin
1 Egg-white
1 Tbsp melted chocolate
1 Tbsp Whole Milk
2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp Butter, melted
3 Tbsp All-purpose flour
3 Tbsp Castor sugar 
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Coffee/ Cinnamon powder
1 tsp Chocolate essence/ Vanilla extract
1 square of your favorite chocolate bar (I used Bournville Rich Cocoa)

Pre-heat your oven to 350 F/ 180 C. Grease your ramekin (if you want to serve just yourself), or your cupcake pan (if you want to share with your special one!!).
Sieve together flour, cocoa powder and baking powder 2-3 times.
Whisk together the egg white and sugar until creamy and frothy. Add the essence, melted chocolate, butter and cinnamon/ coffee powder. Dump in the flour mix, and milk, and stir until smooth. Do NOT over-whisk!
Scoop half the batter in your pan/ ramekin. Place the chocolate square and cover it up with the batter. Pop into oven and bake at 350 F/ 180 C for 20-25 mins. Please note, that the cupcake pan will take lesser time than a ramekin. My cupcake pan takes 17 mins and my ramekin took 25 mins, so watch out closely.
