Molten Lava Cake

My first post of this month is this rich dessert. Contrary to the belief this cake is very easy to make. I bake these cakes regularly  obviously  because it tastes yumm and there's not much prior preparation needed as bringing the butter to room temp. This needs to be served hot right out of the oven or else it looses its gooey inside for which it is most loved and also you can prepare this batter well in advance, pour into the ramekins and cling wrap and refrigerate and bake when you are ready for dessert..great when entertaining! This beauty goes to love2bake at spicy treats

Unsalted butter-113 gms
Dark chocolate-113 gms
Sugar-75 gms
All purpose flour-40 gms


  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, add in the butter and stir until butter is completely melted and keep it 
  • Beat sugar and eggs until light and fluffy, it should take around 2 
  • Add in the melted chocolate- butter and flour and mix gently until well combined
  • Pour the batter into well greased ramekins upto 3/4 th and bake for 15 to 18 mins in a preheated oven at 180 c

Note: My ramekins fills around 3/4 th cup and it took me 16 mins. So the baking time depends on the size of the ramekins. Reduce the baking time for gooey inside and increase if you want a firm cake
