Chocolate Lava Cake

Molten Chocolate Cake

4 Servings

Preparation: 38 minutes Cooking: 7 minutes Total Time: 45 minutes

  • Dark Chocolate 70 g
  • Unsalted Butter 70 g
  • Cocoa Powder 10 g
  • Caster Sugar 50 g
  • Flour 35 g
  • Eggs 2
Place the dark chocolate and unsalted butter together in a bowl and melt it over a saucepan of simmering water. In another bowl, mix the cocoa powder, caster sugar and flour together.
Gradually whisk in the cocoa powder mixture to the chocolate mixture. Add in the eggs and mix thoroughly.
Lightly grease and flour an aluminium cup. Pour in the chocolate fondant mixture and chill in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.
Preheat the Microwave Oven by pressing OVEN, set temperature to 190 degrees celsius, and then press START. Bake the chocolate fondant for 7 minutes in the preheated Microwave Oven. Once the fondant is done, carefully remove from the aluminium cup and decorate with fresh raspberries and a dusting of icing sugar.


Instead of an aluminium cup, you may also use a ramekin or a small round dish (lightly greased with cooking spray) to bake your Chocolate Lava Cake.
