Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

Dear all,

Chocolate Lava Cake

This cake was on my to do list since a long time! Who doesn't like gooey chocolaty chocolate cake which is easy to prepare and is ready in less than 30 mins!! I think the first time I tasted this cake was from Dominos and to be honest never liked it a bit! It leaves weird oily taste behind..yuk!!! I have seen this cake floating around a lot in blogosphere and finally made it this weekend! It's a fool proof recipe though I would like to reduce the sugar a bit as don't really have a sweet tooth but of course you can use the same quantity of ingredients :)

Chocolate Lava Cake - Ingredients

I have adapted this recipe from I really like those two gujju gals blame me for being biased :P and also most of the recipes tried from their blog has always given me great results! Both Hetal and Tanuja are quite sweet and explain the recipes really well.

Chocolate Lava Cake - Recipe
Recipe adapted from
Molten Chocolate Lava Cake
Bittersweet chocolate - 113gms
Butter - 113 gms (I used amul)
2 eggs
1/4 cup all purpose flour - 35 gms
1/3 cup sugar - 70 gms


  • Grease 6 ramekins with butter and keep them aside.
  • On a double boiler or microwave melt the chocolate.
  • Once completely melted remove from heat and add in the butter and mix well until butter is completely melted.
  • In a separate clean bowl beat together sugar and eggs until light and fluffy for about 3 to 4 mins.
  • Add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and mix well.
  • Now gently fold in the flour until its well incorporated.
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees C, fill in 6 ramekins till 2/3 or max 3/4 cup and bake these for exactly 10 to 13 mins! If you bake any longer the gooey center might become hard. Adjust the time according to your preference shorter for gooey and longer for hard center.
  • Immediately serve these with fresh cream or sprinkled some strawberries and icing sugar!
  • Best serve them with vanilla ice cream!
