Molten Chocolate Cakes

6 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped (use good quality)
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, diced
3 large eggs
3 large egg yolks
6 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons all purpose flour
Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter six 3/4-cup soufflĂ© dishes or custard cups. Dust with cocoa. Stir chocolate and butter in heavy medium saucepan over medium-low heat until melted and smooth; cool to lukewarm. Using electric mixer, beat eggs, egg yolks, sugar and salt in large bowl at high speed until pale yellow and thick, about 5 minutes. Fold cooled chocolate into egg mixture. Sift flour over; fold until well incorporated. Divide batter equally among prepared dishes. Transfer to baking sheet.
Bake until set at edges but still soft in center, about 18 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream or icecream.

Makes 6 servings.

**Cakes done when there is about a nickel size 'undone' center.
**These can be made in advance. Just stick custard cups on baking tray in fridge. Take out app. 25 minutes before baking to let come to room temp. You could even make them ahead of time (baking and all) and then just zap them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds before serving!

Buttermilk Waffles

What is better than Buttermilk Waffles on a Saturday morning (especially when your husband makes it)??!! When we first starting dating 9 years ago, we would often have breakfast dates. He would make Dutch Babies and Buttermilk Waffles...who could resist a man that did that?
This recipe is from "The Taste of Oregon".

Buttermilk Waffles
-2 eggs
-2 cups buttermilk
-2 cups flour
-1 tsp. baking soda
-2 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1/3 cup melted butter

Heat waffle iron. Combine all dry ingredients. Beat eggs until frothy. Conbine all ingredients and mix until smooth. Bake until golden brown (about 5 minutes in our belgian waffle maker & the same in our waffle stick maker). Serve with whipped butter, fruit, syrup and or/powdered sugar.

Umm, these are big bites mama!

Jackson prefers to dip his waffles sticks!
