Chocolate Lava Cake Recipe | How To Make Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

Molten chocolate lava cake is a soft and delicious dessert that originated from France. It’s a combination of chocolate, butter, eggs and flour. Lava cake has a firm outside cake layer but a liquid inside layer – like lava coming out of a volcano. 🙂

Ingredients:

• 6 ramekins/molds
• some butter (for greasing)
• some cocoa powder (for dusting)
• some powdered sugar (for dusting)

• 6 oz dark chocolate (chopped)
• 1/2 cup butter (cubed)
• 3 eggs
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 2 tbsp flour

Instructions:

Prepare six molds or ramekins.
Grease each mold with butter.
Dust each mold with cocoa powder.
Place in the fridge.

Meanwhile, make the batter.
Add chopped dark chocolate and cubed butter into a bowl.
Place it on a double boiler.
Stir until chocolate and butter melt.
Once melted, remove from the double boiler.
Set aside and let it cool for a few minutes.

In a separate mixing bowl, add three eggs and sugar.
Season with salt.
Whisk until the mixture is thick.
Add flour.
Whisk until flour is well incorporated.
Gradually add the chocolate and butter mixture while whisking.
Continue to whisk until well combined.

Remove the molds from the fridge.
Fill each mold with the batter.
Place inside the oven.
Let it bake for 7-9 minutes at 180 C.
Once edges are firm, remove from the oven.
Let it cool for a minute.
Remove the mini cakes from the molds.
Dust each with powdered sugar.
Serve with ice cream.
Enjoy!
