Lazy Day Nutella Molten Lava Cake

Simple and Delicious! Lazy Day Nutella Molten Lava Cake

 There are lots of lava cake recipes out there that requires quite a bit of steps and ingredients.  It is also hard to find a recipe that does not have tons of egg yolks or butter in it.  So I did my research and made my adjustments.  Even if you over cook this cake, no big deal, it will still be the most delicious Nutella brownie you have ever tasted.  Simply cannot go wrong! Perfect for date night dessert!
Ahhh! The Simple pleasure of Nutella

Pre-heat oven at 350F or 180C. Spray cooking oil and dust with flour
Ingredients: 3 egg yolk, 1 tbs butter, 1 cup Nutella, 1 tbs flour

Mix all ingredients until smooth.  Fill ramekins 2/3 full and bake in 350F or 180C oven for about 13 mins
Remove from oven when you see a crust is formed around the rim and on top.  Let cool for 5 mins and fill in with strawberries or filling of your choice. 

Scrape the side of the cake with a knife and flip over onto a plate.  Dust with powdered sugar and serve HOT!


YLO's Buttermilk Pancake

Haha!!!! After researching half a dozen pancake recipe, I simplified several different version and come up with this easy to manage recipe.  

Enjoy and have a Yumolicious Breakfast!

Substitution for Buttermilk: If you don't have buttermilk, you can substitute with one cup of Yogurt, or make your own.  Add one tbs of vinegar or lemon juice to one cup of milk, do not stir and wait for 5 minutes.  It will turn into curd milk, buttermilk is basically soured milk.

Ingredients:1 cup of buttermilk, 2tbs melted butter, 1 egg, 1 cup flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbs of sugar

1. Melt Butter in frying pan, reuse pan for frying pancake
2. Mix all ingredients including melted butter
3. Spoon 2 tbs of batter into low heat pan, wait for the bubbles to form.  I use the smallest flame on my stove top

4. Flip once bubbles are formed
Add Berries and 100% Maple syrup and Serve Hot!
