Molten Chocolate Olive Oil Cakes

 1 ½ cups flour
  cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Pure Olive Oil
 1 cup sugar
 2 eggs
 6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder and 1/2 cup boiling water OR
 3.50 oz bar Perugina Dark Chocolate Baci bar
 2 tbsp vanilla extract
 ½ tsp baking soda
 1 pinch sea salt

Preheat oven to 450°F.


Grease four small molds (a cupcake tin or ramekins will work) with Colavita olive oil and dust with flour. Shake off excess flour.


In a medium mixing bowl, combine cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla. Add boiling water. Whisk to combine.


Add Colavita olive oil and eggs to the chocolate mixture and whisk together.


In a different bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and sea salt and mix to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix together until well combined.


Pour batter into prepared molds. Put the molds on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until the cakes have puffed up a bit, the tops are barely set and the cakes still jiggle slightly when shaken, 7 to 9 minutes (better under-baked than overbaked). Let sit for 1 minute.


Put a plate on top of the molds and carefully invert them onto the plate. Let them sit for 10 seconds, then lift up the ramekin. Serve immediately, with ice cream, sorbet or whipped
