Number of serving: 4
6 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate

6 oz. unsalted butter (diced, sift)

½ cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

butter for ramekins


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Melt chocolate on a low flame in a double broiler. Stir butter into melted chocolate, until it dissolves completely.
  • In another bowl beat eggs and sugar with electric mixer, until it starts to whiten and it becomes bubbly.
  • Stir the melted chocolate-butter mix into the egg-sugar mixture with a hand whisk. Add flour and stir to combine.
  • Butter 4 individual 1 ¼ cup ramekins. Divide the chocolate batter equally between the four ramekins.
  • Bake for 7 minutes. The top and sides will set, but the middle will stay gooey. Pull the ramekins out of oven and let the cake cool for 10 minutes.
  • It is very important to let the lava cake rest, otherwise it will brake and you will end with a mess on a plate.
  • Tip ramekins upside down on a serving plate and serve.

TIP: If you would like to make smaller lava cakes, all you have to do is use cup cake form. Line a 12 count cup cake form with cup cake baking cups. Reduce the baking time to 4-5 minutes and still rest for 10 minutes before tipping upside down on a serving plate or just scoop out with a spoon directly from the cup.
