Chocolate lava cake

There is nothing more satisfying on a chilly winter's day than to slide that spoon over warm chocolate lava cake and seeing that molten chocolate running out of the center.

Makes 2


80g Dark chocolate pellets (or chopped chocolate block)

50g unsalted butter

50g Castor sugar / icing sugar

1 egg

1 egg yolk

Pinch of salt

17g Plain flour

Cocoa powder for dusting


Preheat the oven to 200°c or 180°c fan force.

Butter 2 x ramekins and lightly dust with cocoa powder. In a microwaveable bowl place chocolate and butter and melt for 30 seconds, continue for 10 second burst while mixing with a silicone spatula in between. In a stand mixer bowl with a whisk attachment, place the egg, egg yolk along with the castor/icing sugar and whip until triple the volume. Once done, fold in the chocolate then fold in the flour and divide into the 2 moulds. Place the moulds onto a baking tray and bake for 8-9 minutes. Allow to cool for 2 minutes and de-mould onto a serving plate. Sift cocoa powder over the top and serve with either triple cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
