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.

    Hi Could you please advise if I should be using the whole egg ie. egg white and yoke, or just one or the other. Thanks

    Just made this on 2 attempts. Second time was successful as i baked it for exactly 10mins compared to the first which i left it in there longer. Oh ya, I stored the leftover batter in fridge, left it to room temp before baking the second time. So keeping in fridge overnight works :)

    I got 2 questions:
    1) I realise that the texture is very much like brownies. In that case, do you think it is advisable to add in chopped walnuts? I am just wondering whether chopped walnuts will affect the baking time, or how the lava flows. I got a big packet of walnuts waiting to be used but I can’t seem to find any nice recipes other than walnut cakes and brownies.

    2) I read on the Internet that we could bake in advance, keep in fridge then reheat them in microwave for 15-30 secs and the lava will still flow. Has anyone tried? My friend asked me to bake for her house gathering and i am wondering if can bake in advance.

      thanks for sharing the tip about keeping in fridge overnight. I think you can definitely add walnuts to it, sounds good, especially if you intend to enjoy it like a cake without the lava. If I bake this again, I will try the reheating with microwave method and update.
