Chocolate Lava Cake

This is seriously the best recipe I've ever discovered (aside from my Hummingbird Cake recipe)... and it is definitely the most dangerous. It is so quick and easy to make that it is almost unbelievable how ridiculously good it tastes! I made this for myself and Joe multiple times over the last weekend and he loved it. He even asked me to make it twice a day and if there was a way he could take it to work!

2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 dash salt (I use sea salt)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tablespoons flour

In a coffee mug, combine water, melted butter, vanilla, and salt. Whisk well. Add cocoa powder and stir. Add sugar and whisk again before finally adding the flour and blending well. Microwave for 60 to 90 seconds (I heated mine for 75 and I thought it was perfect). The center should be slightly molten- you don't want to overcook it.

Enjoy! Be sure to let me know what you think!! I hope you all have a great weekend :)
