Chocolate Lava Cake

I have a addiction to lava cakes, i have shared so many version of it in my blog already. I have a eggless version, microwave version and a lava cake with ghee flavour..This one is my recent discovery and i loved it to the core. I have made a video version of it as well. This is nigella lawson’s recipe and it is a no fail recipe. 

About Lava Cake

A popular dessert that combines the elements of a chocolate cake and a soufflé is molten chocolate cake. It gets its name from the dessert’s liquid chocolate centre, and it’s also known as chocolate moelleux (from the French word for soft), chocolate lava cake, or simply lava cake. It should not be confused with chocolate fondant, a
recipe that uses little flour but a lot of chocolate and butter, resulting in a melting texture on the palate (but not on the plate).  It’s like a self-saucing pudding. Lava cakes combine the best characteristics of a chocolate cake and a soufflé. These soft chocolate cakes have a liquid centre that is pure magic.

Ingredients for Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes

All Purpose Flour:

All-purpose flour can be used for a variety of tasks, including baking, cooking, coating meats and vegetables, and thickening sauces and gravies. To manufacture all-purpose flour, a blend of hard wheat (which has more gluten) and soft wheat is crushed together.

Icing sugar :
It dissolves quickly, making it ideal for use in icings, buttercreams, and frostings, as well as some candies and for dusting baked cakes and cookies.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.

Notes

  • I used a 250 ml microwave safe ramekin to cook this.
  • Use good quality melting chocolate for the best lava part. Dairy milk, bournville, dairy milk silk is perfect.
  • Don’t over cook the cake, it will get cooked in 1 min. After you remove the cake from oven it will keep on cooking.
  • Cook on high temp in microwave.
