Celebrating back to school with Molten Lava Cake!!!
Its time when kids get all geared up to go to school. Back pack full of everything NEW. Ohhh..I just love it. The smell of new books...remember opening my books every now and then as a kid. New uniform, bag, lunch box , umbrella. Aaah.. I miss my school days!! But now I enjoy shopping for my son. :)
Now let's get back to the recipe.
Chocolates are my all time favorite and so are Chocolate Cakes. When ever I have a craving for Chocolate, I make the Molten Lava Cake. Made them so many times..Love the flowing Chocolate..yummm. Its so moist and delicious. Its only when you scoop it with a spoon that you find the pudding like center of the cake. It has all the characteristics of a souffle, cake or a pudding.
For all those who are new to baking, this ones the best try. Easy, tasty and sure to win many hearts ;)
Molten Lava Cake
Recipe adapted from Ria’s Collection
Dark Cooking Chocolate – 100g
Butter – 100g (at room temp)
Eggs - 2
Sugar - 1/3 cup
All-purpose Flour - 1/4 cup
Butter - for greasing ramekins
Melt chocolate in a microwave for 30 – 60 seconds (till it gets soft).
Mix the butter until it melts fully
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs till fluffy.
Now add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
Add the chocolate butter mixture to the egg mixture.
Add all purpose flour and mix well till it’s well incorporated.
Preheat oven for 10 minutes.
Butter the bottom and sides of ramekins.
Pour the mixture ¾ full.
Bake at 180 degree for 10 – 15 minutes until the top edges turns a bit flaky and the middle is wobbly.
Invert after 2 minutes or serve as it is in the ramekins.
Remove immediately from oven.
You can prepare the batter well in advance, pour it into the ramekins and refrigerate. Bake it just 20 minutes before you want to serve it.
To invert it run a sharp knife around the edge and invert.
It can be served with fresh cream / a scoop of vanilla ice cream / just simply the molten lava cake( I like the third option) :)
