    Lorianne1's Note:

    I believe this is an Alton Brown recipe. It is cakey on the outside and gooey chocolate on the inside. I have made these several times and they have always been a hit. Posting the recipe so I don't have to go searching for it next time I want to make it. Cook time is approximate, accounting for chill time.

      Somebody stop me. Seriously. I have made this recipe twice in one week and I feel like making it again. These are out of this world! I've given away so many of them and folks keep asking me for the recipe. Instead of pouring them into muffin tins I have started pouring them into my bigger ramekins. You get more of the gooey liquid filling this way, and you can serve one as a dessert with ice cream and it is a "restaurant-size" portion.

      These had a wonderful flavor but they turned out a little in the ugly side. I had to just guess when they were done because the insides stay liquid, but I baked them for about 12 minutes. After they cooled, the tops rumpled up and the cupcakes were this light grayish brown color on top. Everyone at work really liked them. Also another tip, these do not need frosting, they are good as is. Thanks for the tasty recipe!
