Spiced Molten Chocolate Cakes

1 t vanilla
1 c powdered sugar
3 eggs, separated
6 T flour
1/4 t cinnamon
1/4 t ginger
1/8 t cloves (opt)

1. Preheat oven to 400* and butter four custard cups or ramekins.
2. In a medium pan, melt chocolate and butter until smooth; take off heat and stir in vanilla and sugar until well incorporated.
3. Stir in 2 eggs and 1 yolk until well combined; stir in flour and spices.
4. Pour into prepared cups. Place cups on a baking sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until edges are pulled away but center is still soft.
5. Let stand 1 minute; loosen and invert cakes onto serving plates and garnish with powdered sugar or cocoa powder.
