Tuesdays With Dorie~Gooey Chocolate Cakes



OOOOHHHHH YAAAAAAHHHHH! Who doesn't want a personal molten chocolate gooey cake? Feel free to ask, I don't know the answer, because I don't think anyone I know would turn down one of these bad-boys.
This marks my whooping comeback to the wonderful baking brigade Tuesdays With Dorie. My big birthday month has come and gone, and I am back in the kitchen, and back in the mix (finally)!

A HUGE thanks to LEIGH of LEMON TARTLET, who chose this rockin' recipe! I LOVE CHOCOLATE, LOVE CAKE and LOVE anything GOOEY. As usual I loved reading Dorie's intro- noting that she prefers to use the disposable muffin tins and even keeps it "green" by washing them in the dishwasher- who knew that was possible?! Answer: I do...now!



This is a simple and totally glamorous desert that is a big hit for a dinner party (I made molten cakes previously,HERE, for a dinner party we had around New Year's Eve.)
And while this desert, as Dorie notes in the side column, is best enjoyed right out of the oven, it can be wrapped and enjoyed the next day. Since Nate and I have been on the fitness tip, I made these babies last Thursday night because last Friday was my homie Natalie's Birthday! This worked out famously because Nate and I split one (after it's close-up) when they were hot and amazing, and the next day my co-workers enjoyed them with a little vanilla ice cream, not gooey, but still oh-so-delicious!!

For the recipe, go out and buy BAKING; From My Home To Yours By: Dorie Greenspan. Or pop on over to LEMON TARTLET to scope it out right now!

I think your cakes look fabulous! You got some great goo going on there!! Mine were more fudgy than gooey, but they did taste delicious, especially with a drizzle of muscovado toffee sauce and some clotted cream!!
