Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes


  • 150g chocolate
  • 1 stick and 3 tbsp butter
  • eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour


Melt chocolate over simmering water or in microwave.
Whisk the sugar and eggs together. Pour in the melted chocolate into the eggs/sugar, whisking constantly.
Once smooth, add the flour and mix thoroughly.
Pour the batter into the molds until half way.
Place the molds in the freezer and freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake for 12 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let sit for 5-8 minutes.
Carefully remove from the mold, place onto place and garnish to your desire.

**I filled my molds half way and there was enough batter for 4 more molds. I think the batter should be filled 2/3rds way into the cups. I found there was a lot of room left in the molds after they were finished baking. Also the tops on a few of the molds weren’t completely baked so when I tried to unmold the lava came streaming out. I then tried it 2/3rds full and baked for 13 minutes, left to cool and found that it worked better as the tops were sturdier for unmolding.
