My buddy Anemone showed me this yummy looking Chocolate Lava Cake recipe and we made a date to come over my place to make it. It was really fun for friends to cook together!

I don’t normally have a sweet tooth, and I wasn’t really acquainted with this French dessert, but my friend convinced me that I will like it. She was right – it was really good! Not too sweet like most desserts are, and just the right amount of chocolatey-ness. Not just any chocolate, but warm & oozing runny chocolate goodness (hence the names chocolate lava cake/molten chocolate cake/chocolate fondant pudding).

Chocolate Lava Cake Recipe

Both my friend and I agreed that it is a very simple recipe and we succeeded in making it to the right consistency on the first attempt (chocolate oozing out when cut in the middle). I think this is an excellent dessert to serve when entertaining guests – simply prepare everything in advance, and after your guests have finished their main course, just pop the ramekins into the oven for 10 minutes. Your guests will really be impressed with how effortless you whip up a warm and delicious dessert with no sweat and in no time at all – never mind the messy behind-the-scenes, you would have washed up before they arrived.

    I keep waiting for this post the moment I saw the photos. Definitely have to try this one day! But I don’t have ramekins at home. You think I can substitute with muffin pans. :)

      Yes u can! Like the original blogger suggested, if you use muffin tray reduce baking time to 8 mins or less. Hope you like it :)

    Oh don’t tempt me with such delicious sweets when I’m on a diet, that’s another 30 minutes jog :)
    Btw your blog was mentioned by a Malaysian blogger in his interview by Sin Chew Jit Poh :)

      Isn’t it difficult to keep a food blog and diet all at the same time? ;)

      Thanks for telling me about the article, was thrilled to read it :halo:

    I don’t have a sweet tooth too but I’ll say yes to chocolate lava cake definitely, anytime. Whenever I order it from cafes here, I have to pre-order it in advance (giving them at least 20-30minutes) so that the dessert can be ready after the meal. I hate to have a waiting gap between main course and dessert. :O

      haha I’m opposite. I like to eat slowly so I don’t mind the wait. It seems like chocolate lava cake is a dessert which those with no sweet tooth can accept :)
