Recipe Of The Day: Molten Lava Cakes





And my lovely blog readers one of the most awaited recipes is Finally here! :D

Molten chocolate cake or lava cake, is a popular dessert that combines the elements of a flourless chocolate cake (sometimes called a chocolate decadence cake) and a soufflé. Some other names used are chocolate fondant pudding and chocolate lava cake.

Who can say No to molten lava? Not me! ;)

Moist chocolate cake with a core of rich creamy chocolate filling. A delicious delight. I prefer to make it at home as one of my favorite desserts and now You can too! :)

They’re the kind of thing that you usually only find in restaurants because they look as though they are difficult to make. And there are a million recipes on how to make them and I have tried half a dozen recipes & find this one the easiest and quickest!

Once again this recipe is a step by step guide with each and every step with pictures.

Don't over bake or you will get a brownie-like dessert without the creamy-molten chocolate center-the 'Lava'. They are a little tricky because of the cooking temperature and the baking time but once you master that art...Viola!

This Recipe Makes 4 Cakes.

Ingredients:






4 squares chocolate (bitter or sweet-as you like)
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar (if using sweet chocolate) and 1.5 cups (if using bitter chocolate)
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
6 tablespoon All-Purpose Flour
Baking Spray
whipped cream/icecream/sauce/nuts for Garnish.


How To Make:

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Centigrade. Spray to Grease the cups with butter, four 3/4 cup ramekins.




Heat chocolate on a water bath. When melted add butter on very low heat. Until Smooth.




Stir in sugar. Blend in eggs first then egg yolks. Until Glossy. Cook for few more minutes.

Take off heat and Stir in flour.



Spoon In Cups:



Bake for 12-15 minutes or until sides are firm. Centre will be soft.




Loosen with knife and serve immediately warm on a dessert plate with cream/icecream/sauce & nuts. (turning the cakes on the plate is tricky so be careful)





Cut it to get the beautiful molten chocolate lava :)




Bon Appétit!
