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).

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.

  1. Can i replace self-raising flour with plain flour?

  2. Hi Wiffy, first attempt in baking this lovely chocolate lava cake..thumbs up! yummy!! Thumbs up!! Tq for sharing, u r too kind :-)

  3. just two additional tweeks, make a salted caramel, cool then use an icing bag to pipe into the middle of the lava cake before cooking
    also grease the ramekins then put a teaspoon of cocoa powder in each, turn them one by one onto their sides and roll the cocoa round so the ramekins are entirely coated. After cooking the cake slides our easily and with that fresh orangey sheen of the cocoa.
    And yes – lol – there’s a severe tendency for americans to lay claim to all sorts of inventions, cookery or otherwise, like most of the others, this one’s wrong too – definitely a french recipe from way before the U.S. was borne :-)

  5. Hi, i just tried to bake the lava cake following your method but it turn out too wet n over cooked. Do you know why? If i add more can solve the problem? Pls resuce as i still have some mixture left. Thx

    • Can you elaborate how is it wet and over cooked at the same time? over cooked should be dry. How long did you bake and at what temperature? You used an oven? Thanks.

  6. i use a convection oven. i bake it at 180C for 10min. It is very moist/soft but is over cooked b’cos it don’t have the lava effect. but i beat the eggs and sugar for about 30min b’cos is still yellowish not white.

    • Hi Js, wow beating the eggs and sugar for 30 mins … that sounds tedious! Are you doing so manually? I used an electric whisk and it’s done in about 3 minutes. You try to reduce the baking time to 8 mins and see if there is any lava this time round. Hope you succeed.

  7. I did reduced the timing but the top feel very moist (soft/wet) and it is uncooked even the top.

    When you use the electric whisk does the eggs & sugar really become white and not yellowish?

    After adding all the ingredients the mixture should have what type of texture?

    Thanks.

  8. utter nonesense it is…do you want ppl to eat undercook cake and get that weird smell out of it..

  9. Where do u buy ramekins in singapore? :)

  10. hii…. can i store the batter for 24 hrs or more
