Chocolate Lava Cake

Cook Time15 minutes
Course: Dessert


  • 8 ramekins
  • double boiler pan (optional)
  • mixing bowl


  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate
  • 1 cup (2 cubes) butter
  • 7 eggs
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Melt the chocolate and butter together. I like to use a double-boiler pan but you can use the microwave (I microwave it 10 seconds at a time, stir and repeat until fully melted).
  • Cool for 10 minutes.
  • Lightly grease the ramekins or baking cups. Tip: Use the white ones as the cake gets overdone if you use clear cups.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix four (4) of the eggs with sugar. Whisk well.
  • Add the flour, and whisk well again.
  • Add the three (3) remaining eggs. Whisk well.
  • Add the egg mixture to the chocolate mixture and mix well.
  • Pour into the individual ramekins.
  • Depending on your oven: Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until just done.
  • If at the 15 minute mark the top is cooked and cake-like , then it is done.
  • The interior will be melting. Do not overcook, otherwise the inside will be too cake-like.
  • Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
  • Garnish the ice cream with dark chocolate shavings for that extra special touch.
  • Enjoy!
