Are you guys excited for the Minions movie? I am! I love Dave and Steve and the whole crew. The kids also love them. But this movie is a little different. In the movie, the minions are trying to find the perfect Evil Genius to serve so to prepare for movie night, I served up some molten lava cake because nothing is more deliciously evil than chocolate cake.
I picked up the Target exclusive Minions MetalPak. It also came with a $5 gift card to Target so you know I was all about that! I grabbed my movie and the supplies for my cakes and got to baking. If you get the Target MetalPak, it comes with 40 minutes of exclusive content. Target is also your one-stop-shop for other Minions licensed products! Minion stocking stuffers anyone?
Target has everything you need for a good Minions movie night. The supplies for my cakes, the movie, and bananas because of course.
So what do you need exactly? A bar of semi-sweet baking chocolate, butter, powdered sugar, eggs, egg yolks, flour, and a banana. At least 2 hours before baking, slice up your banana and put on a plate in a single layer and place it in the freezer.
Now that you’re ready to cook. Put the chocolate and butter in a glass bowl and melt it in the microwave. Start at 1 minute, whisk, and then continue to melt. Decrease the seconds as you go because chocolate has a very low melting point and you do not want to burn it!
Once it’s all melted, add the powdered sugar, egg yolks, eggs, and flour. In that order. Whisk quickly so your eggs don’t cook.
This recipe will fill 4 baking cups. Fill them 3/4 way through and bake at 425 degrees for 13 minutes.
Your cake should be done around the edges but still soft in the middle. That’s the molten part. 😉
Serve immediately. I dusted it with powdered sugar and topped it with a few frozen bananas. It’s the perfect dessert to enjoy while watching Minions.
Here’s the recipe in detail:
1 8 ounce bar of semi-sweet baking chocolate
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 egg yolks
6 tablespoons of flour
1 banana, sliced and frozen
powder sugar for dusting
1. At least 2 hours prior to baking, slice and freeze your banana
2. Preheat oven for 425 degrees. Melt butter and chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute. Whisk. If you need to, melt for 45 more seconds. Whisk again.
3. Whisk in powder sugar.
4. Add the egg yolks. Then add the eggs, one at a time, working quickly so the eggs don’t cook.
5. Whisk in the flour. Pour batter into 4 well-greased baking cups.
6. Bake for 13 minutes.
7. Let stand for 1 minute before removing the cakes. Place on plate, dust with powder sugar, and top with frozen banana slices. Serve immediately.
