The title basically describes it! 

Chocolate Molten Cupcakes with Powdered Sugar & Strawberries!!!

Made for a Champagne & Cupcakes party my friend had for the end of term at Oxford. :)

Ingredients:

5 eggs
2 tablespoons of flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
250 grams extra-dark chocolate
1 pinch salt

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.

Melt butter and chocolate together in a water-bath.

In a separate bowl, mix eggs and sugar until sugar is dissolved.
Add in pinch of salt and mix until dissolved.

Mix butter-chocolate and egg mixture together.

Slowly add flour in through a sift while continuously mixing.

Pour mixture about 3/4 full into a ramequin or a cupcake holder. 

Put in oven for approximately 15 minutes (though keep an eye on it, these are extremely easy to over-cook!)

When cooked, place on a tray and add powdered sugar onto the cupcakes through a sift.

Then, add on chopped strawberries.

Voila! Enjoy!

How far in advance of eating these can they be made? I'm making them for a friends birthday.
Hey great recipe! I was wondering, would I be able to eat these cold?

Hi there -- well, the molten chocolate in the centre doesn't really have the right texture anymore when they're cold unfortunately. They still taste good but not really quite as good.

Hope this helps. :)
Thank you, that helped a lot! I will be trying these soon! :)

Thanks so much for posting this. We made it last night at home and it was a hit. It was delicious and moist served hot.

Some conversions for US measures:
1) 250 grams chocolate worked out to 1.5 cups of chocolate chips in a measuring cup.
2) The oven temp 180 degs C is 355 deg. F.
3) 1/2 cup butter is 1 stick of butter.

Some comments:
1) We used semi-sweet choco chips melted in a microwave.
2) We melted the butter in a microwave.
3) We just slowly added the flour without sifting.
4) We made 9 cupcakes with this recipe.
5) We cooked it for 20 minutes.

Glad it worked and glad you enjoyed it! :)
I did use the microwave to melt the butter/chocolate. Works just fine. :)

Can't wait to try this recipe! I looks great and the kids will love it!

Haven't tried microwaving yet! Don't know how it would turn out? If you've done both and it works just as well I'm sure that's fine too! :)

Also - I did one batch for a friend of mine's birthday with a mix of blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries and it was lovely too!
