Molten Lava Cake

I love chocolate and this dessert is a winner for any chocolate lovers here. I love to see the chocolate flow out when I eat this. Mmmm...

Molten Lava Cake
(makes 5 cakes)

110g dark chocolate
110g butter
100g icing sugar
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
125g cake flour

Note: Place a bowl over a bowl of hot water for the whole time when you make this dessert. Make sure the bowl on top doesn't touch the water.


  1. Melt the chocolate. Scrape the sides so the chocolate doesn't set.
  2. Stir in the butter until combined.
  3. Sift over the icing sugar. Stir in the icing sugar until combined. The mixture should now be more thick.
  4. Beat the eggs into the mixture until it just combines. Beat the yolks into the mixture until it just combines. You will have a bubbly mixture when you stop the beaters. There is no need to beat for a long time.
  5. Add the flour and mix with a spatula. When it is nearly mixed, use the beaters and beat until it just combines. Again, you don't need to beat for too long.
  6. Grease the tins lightly with some oil. Pour the batter into the tins until they are 90% full.
  7. Wipe the sides of the tins.
  8. Bake at 200C for 10 minutes.
  9. Cool for 5 minutes before turning them out onto a plate to serve. Run a knife around the edges of the lava cakes. Place a plate on top and turn both of them upside down.
These are very yummy. I like to eat them with some vanilla ice cream.
