I finally re-visited my chocolate lava cake recipe, and this new user-friendly version looks better, sounds better, and doesn't call for any extra-large eggs. I don’t remember why the original recipe called for them, but this updated formula uses the standard large variety, which should save me from answering another 300 emails.
The original chocolate lava cake video recipe is probably the most watched, most commented, most emailed, and most linked-to recipe I've ever filmed. Most people like chocolate cake, but when you add "lava" to the name, they go completely mental.
I also had the upcoming Valentine's Day in mind. For you single guys that aren't handsome, don't have money, and can't play a musical instrument, this may be the only arrow in Cupid's quiver. But take heart, it is a devastating weapon when used correctly. End your romantic home cooked meal with this dessert, and watch the magic. Enjoy!

2 large egg yolks
5 tbsp butter
