Ingredients:  
2 tbsp. butter, melted
2 tbsp. unsweetened coca
3/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
3 (4-oz) premium semisweet chocolate baking bars, broken into pieces (do not even think of substituting chocolate chips!)
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 1/4 cups egg substitute (yay! no salmonella!)
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 flour
powdered sugar

Directions:
I recommend using Demarle's flexible silicone muffin tray for this recipe, but if you don't own one, you can brush a regular muffin pan with 2 tbsp. melted butter and sprinkle with 2 tbsp. cocoa. Shake out excess. Place in fridge to firm butter.

Melt 3/4 cup butter and chocolate in a large heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring often, until they melt. Slowly whisk in cream; set aside.

Combine egg substitute and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed 5-7 minutes or until slightly thickened; add chocolate cream and flour, beating until blended. Pour batter into muffin cups, filling to about 1/4-inch from tops. Cover and chill at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.

Bake uncovered at 450 for 10-11 minutes or just until edges of cakes spring back when lightly touched but centers are still soft. Let stand 3 minutes before loosening edges with a knife. Quickly invert onto baking sheet and transfer to desser plates. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve immediately.

These will make you fall down on your knees and weep with joy. Just a friendly warning. Part of the beauty of this recipe is its make-ahead nature. You can enjoy your dinner guests and then only 10 minutes before dessert time go pop these in the oven!
