Molten Lava Cake-Microwave Method

It was an usual order for pizzas where we got molten lava as free!!...I was not impressed with molten lava cakes sold in pizza outlets..Most of them are tasteless...I been trying various recipes for molten lava quit a while,this one is the best i came across...Cant resist to share the recipe here...

I tried Campco dark chocolate bar...It melts perfectly to match this lava cake...
So,use any buttery and firm textured dark chocolates

Molten Lava cake
Dark Chocolate,chopped-4 oz
Egg yolk-1
Butter-4 tbsps
All purpose flour-6 tbsps
Powdered Sugar-2/3 cup
Vanilla essence-1 tsp
Salt a pinch

Melt the butter and chocolate together
Add the sugar and maida to it
Let it cool,mean while beat the eggs fluffy
Fold the eggs and chocolate mix
Spray the ramekins...Pour the mix into 8 small ramekins to half or three fourth level

Microwave it for one minute in HIGH
Or Bake for 3 minutes at 200C in a pre heated oven

Rest it for a minute and Demold the cake in a serving plate or can serve as it is...Enjoy

Since, Vegetarians  doesn't like egg in the recipe,u can use this eggless recipe and use the same time and temperature for baking as given here...The molten lava should be saucy,so the trick is to remove the ramekins once the top layer of cake is formed..The temperature varies to each oven,So try a single ramekin first to get lava cake..

Of course,Some best pastries and cakes cannot go without egg in taste..I didnt feel eggy for this cake...


  1. Hmm..wont it smell eggy, cause we give only three minutes? Delectable pics.
