Cocoa Lava Cake
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
powdered sugar for dusting
(4 ramekins - sprayed or buttered & dusted with flour)

Begin by melting the butter and set aside to cool to room temperature.  In a large bowl - mix together the milk, eggs & sugar (you may use a whisk but do not whip until frothy).  Now the butter should be cooled - add that into the egg/sugar mixture & stir until combined.  Add in the flour, cocoa and vanilla and stir with a wooden spoon until fully blended.  Pour equal amounts into the Ramekins (which should already have been sprayed).  Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 9 to 14 minutes (NOTE:  Every oven is different - if you are making this for the first time I would bake 1 Ramekin first & then test to make sure the "lava" is flowing inside.  The perfect time for my oven is 10.5 minutes).  Remove the Ramekins from the oven & place on a cooling rack for at least 15 minutes.  While they are cooling - take a knife and gently run around the edges  (see picture below).  After 15 (plus) minutes - invert each Lava Cake on a plate & then dust with powdered sugar. 
Serve immediately & Enjoy A DIVINE DESSERT!
