Chocolate Lava Cake

Chocolate Lava Cake

Chocolate is the key to happiness.  I love this recipe - the texture, the flavor, and how easy it was to make! I’ve tried so many lava cakes, but this just has to be my absolute favorite. So easy to make and the taste is flawless. It’s moist and so chocolaty and when you cut into it, luscious chocolate oozes out! I love this cake, especially when is topped with vanilla ice cream.


  • 250 g of baking chocolate
  • 175 g of unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon of softened butter
  • 125 g of powdered sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 70 gr of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder


Preheat the oven to 200°C.  The six large custard cups well grease with softened butter, then place on a baking sheet and set aside.

Add butter and baking chocolate to a large microwave-safe bowl. Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave for 1 minute, or until butter is melted, then stir until butter and chocolate are completely smooth. Let cool slightly. Add powdered sugar and stir.

Add eggs and egg yolks then mix completely. Add flour and cocoa powder and then stir until just combined. Divide batter among prepared the custard cups filling about 1/2 cup in each. Bake for 11 minutes until the sides are firm but the centers are still soft.

Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes. Then gently loosen cakes from custard cups by sliding a knife around the edges of each cake and invert cakes onto serving plates.

Top with some powdered sugar and serve hot cake.
