How to make chocolate molten lava cake
To ensure that your homemade chocolate molten lava cake comes out nice and easily, prepping the ramekin is an important step which we’ve outlined below!
Prep four ramekin (170g or 6 ounces sized) with non-stick cooking spray.
Dust the insides of all four ramekin with cocoa powder.
Pre-heat the oven to 218°C
Pour 115g of Lurpak Butter and 170g of Belgium Dark Chocolate in a medium-sized, heat-proof bowl
Melt them by microwaving on high settings in 10-second intervals, stirring after each interval until completely smooth.
Next up, is making the cake.
Whisk 31g of All Purpose Flour, 60g of sugar, and ⅛ teaspoon of salt into a small bowl
In another separate large bowl, beat the two large eggs and additional two egg yolks together.
Pour the melted chocolate mixture and whisked flour mixture into the large bowl containing the beaten eggs
Stir everything together slowly using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon; you should be looking for thick batter. If you find any lumps, use your whisk to gently beat them.
Spoon the chocolate batter evenly into the ramekin
Place the ramekins onto a baking sheet, and bake for 12-14 minutes at 218°C.
When the sides appear solid and firm, and the top looks soft, remove it from the oven.
Let them rest for one minute.
Cover each ramekin with a plate that’s turned over.
And at the same time, turn both ramekin and plate over to remove the cake in one piece.
Optional: Add toppings and serve!
