Chocolate Lava Cake

If you tell me you have chocolate lava cake for me, I’d probably scream out loud. I LAVA my chocolate and if you have some dark chocolate lying at home, please don’t hesitate to make these gorgeous edible mini volcanoes. They are absolutely AMAZING.

Yield: 4


  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate (I like using dark chocolate)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup icing/powdered sugar
  • 2 whole eggs at room temperature
  • 2 egg yolks at room temperature
  • 6 tbsp flour


  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Butter ramekins and place onto baking tray
  3. Microwave (1 min) or double boil chocolate and butter until melted. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in sugar.
  5. Add eggs and mix well. Stir in flour.
  6. Spoon into ramekins.
  7. Bake for 13-14 mins until edges are firm and the center is still soft and jiggly. (Check often as sizes of ramekins differ)
  8. Let it stand for 1 minute before serving it upside down on a plate.
  9. Serve and enjoy!
