Molten Lava Cake

This is one of the best cakes I have ever baked. This recipe is a keeper for sure. It sure satisfied my cake and chocolate craving :) The best part is that it can be made from start to finish in 30 minutes and also it needs only five ingredients. I used dark chocolate instead of the semi-sweet chocolate and it tasted equally yummy! A bit healthier too.. Also loved the fact that it is baked i single sized servings. loved the gooey center of the molten lava cake. I baked it a little longer and it still resulted in a soft and moist center. This sweet goes to A Sweet Punch hosted by Divya this month. Now onto the recipe..

Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate/Dark Chocolate – 4 oz (113g)
Butter – 4 oz (113g)
Eggs – 2
Sugar – 1/3 cup (75 g)
All-purpose Flour – 1/4 cup (40g)
Butter – for greasing ramekins


1. In a double boiler, melt chocolate. Alternatively Microwave for 2 minutes checking every 30 seconds.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy.
3. Once chocolate is melted, remove pan from heat and add in butter. Mix until the butter melts fully.
4. Add chocolate/butter mixture into the eggs, add all-purpose flour and mix until well incorporated.
5. Butter bottom and sides of ramekins (small glass/porcelain bowls) and pour in mixture about 3/4 way full.
6. Place ramekins on a baking tray and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 C) for 10 – 15 minutes. Shorter for gooey (molten) inside, longer for stiff inside.
7. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
