Molten Chocolate-Nutella Pudding Cakes

Nutella is totally in right now. I've seen so many people obsessed with it on blogger and so many different recipes from crepes to cookies. I, agree with the fad and totally love it. I came across this recipe in AllYou and knew I had to try it. You should to. You won't be sorry.

Nutella Pudding Cakes

1/2 cup AP flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
4oz. semisweeet chocolate, finely chopped(i used chocolate chips, they work great)
8 tbsp(1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces.
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extracct
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbsp nutella

Preheat oven to 350. Mist 6-6oz. ramekins with cooking spray. Place a raosting pan in the oven; pour in 1/2in water. In a bowl, whisk flour, cocoa and baking powder.
Combine chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl; cook on high, stirring once or twice, until almost melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk until smooth.
In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat eggs, vanilla, sugar and slat until pale yellow, about 5 minutes. Beat in melted chocolate mixture. Stir in flour mixture. Spoon half of batter into ramekins. Drop 1 tbsp of Nutella into center of each. Cover with remaining batter.
Transfer ramekins to roasting pan. Bake until cakes have risen and are cracked on top, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Serve warm.

This little cakes are a little time consuming, but definitely worth it. (:
I've heard about this recipe a few times and I had actually tried it before I made it. My sister made it one Sunday afternoon and my husband loved it so i knew i had to make it.

I kind of forgot about it, until I came across it in a recipe book I got as a gift. This is the perfect summer dessert. You got to try it (:
