Author's Notes

Perfecting the bake on the lava cake can take some time. Don’t forget to grease the ramekins and keep an eye on them! Only remove it from the oven when the edge has set and visibly begins to peel away from the wall, and the middle has a cooked-through shell but still jiggles.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
step 2
In a medium saucepan simmer 2-inches of water.
step 3
In a heatproof bowl melt Butter (3 Tbsp) and Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate (4 Tbsp) by stirring until smooth.
step 4
Once melted, mix in Salt (to taste) and Strong Coffee (1 Tbsp). Remove from heat.
step 5
Sift in Powdered Confectioners Sugar (3/4 cup) until combined, then let cool.
step 6
Once cool to the touch, add in Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp), Apple Cider Vinegar (1/2 tsp), and 1 whole egg plus the yolk of a second Eggs (2).
step 7
Slowly mix in the All-Purpose Flour (3 Tbsp) and Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (1 Tbsp) until combined. The batter should be fairly runny so if it feels too thick add more coffee tsp by tsp to loosen it up.
step 8
Add in Red Food Coloring (1/2 Tbsp) until Valentine’s red is achieved.
step 9
Grease two ramekins with butter. Evenly distribute the mixture throughout.
step 10
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges have set and the center has baked enough to form a shell but still jiggles. Meanwhile, prepare the Cosmopolitan.
step 11
Combine GREY GOOSE® Vodka (4 fl oz), Triple Sec (3 fl oz), Cranberry Juice (3 fl oz), and juice from Limes (2) into a cocktail shaker with ice.
step 12
Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with Orange Twists (2).
