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.

    If I am to bake the cakes in the morning and take them out for dinner, will the lava inside solidify? Cos I’m intending to bring them to a friend’s potluck and will not have time to bake them when I’m at her house. :)

    Hi there!
    I just made it!
    I taste good but I over-baked it and got chocolate cake. But one thing strange is that once I took it out of the oven, a pool of oil was on the surface of the hot cake.
    I immediately poured it away and it was oil from the butter I think.
    Why do you think happened?

    Oh, I used dark chocolate but less than 70% cacao as the store did not carry them.

    hi! i tried the recipe accordingly as mentioned above, but didn’t get the runny chocolate consistency :( And i only baked for 8 mins! Any ideas how to improve it? Could the ‘melted chocolate’ consistency be one of a reason?

    Need an answer quickly. Can you bake the lava cakes in advance of serving them (like a few hours before).



    • wiffy replied: — May 25th, 2011 @ 2:34 pm

      Sorry for my late reply. I have not tried baking them in advance, but I would think they are best served warm because of the runny chocolate.
