How to make the best Choco lava cake in your life?

by Rehan S. Branding

Let’s talk about one of the favourite desserts - the decadent, indulgent, and absolutely dreamy choco lava cake. You can find it in cafes, restaurants, and now you can even find it in 7-11 outlets. To be fair, if you really think about it, what’s not to like? It’s essentially cake made primarily out of chocolate, with a bit of flour, sugar, butter and eggs.

The best thing about this? It’s deceptively simple to make, and it comes together in less than 30 minutes. Dust some powdered sugar on top, add a scoop of ice cream and you have yourself a gourmet treat that restaurants charge a premium for.

If there ever was a dessert made for a romantic occasion, this might arguably be the one. The recipe below yields two lava cakes made in 4 oz. ramekins, or one lava cake made in an 8 oz. ramekin. It’s incredibly chocolaty, and one is probably enough, so we've made the yield smaller and suitable for sharing!

While the recipe for a chocolate lava cake is simple and requires few ingredients and steps, the execution is key to getting the perfect lava cake. But no fret, after multiple tries, here are some of the top tips for you to get lava cakes perfect for the ‘gram.

If you intend to make these beautiful chocolate lava cakes, here are some tips for you.

Tips on making the best chocolate lava cake

Butter & flour - Imagine doing everything right and getting the perfect lava cake, only to realise that it’s stuck to the ramekin. Though if that happens, just take a spoon and eat it straight out. Still. Good. Essentially, you want to grease the entire ramekin with butter, add in some flour, and then twirl the ramekin around to coat it before tapping out any excess flour!

Use quality chocolate - Chocolate lava cake is made mostly out of chocolate, with a bit of flour to hold it together and provide some structure. Good quality chocolate will come a long way here! It is also recommended using a darker chocolate instead of a semi-sweet chocolate, because this is seriously chocolaty. 

Do not follow the recipe to a T - When it comes to baking your lava cakes, do not simply following the timing stated in the recipe. Look at your cakes to determine if they are set around the edges, with a jiggly centre that’s only just done.

Make a test batch - Test batches help you keep track of how long it takes for your oven to make a perfect lava cake. That way, you don’t have to worry about failed lava cakes when you prepare them for a gathering or occasion.

Let it cool for a bit - While chocolate lava cakes are meant to be served warm, allowing them to cool for a minute to let it set slightly can prevent your cake from breaking apart when trying to invert them onto a plate.

Chocolate lava cake is perfect as a dessert. Try baking it at home and enjoy!
