Chocolate lava cake

Wow- a company - worthy - ooey, gooey chocolate dessert is a snap to make!!

  • 113g semi sweet baking chocolate
  • 113g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 75g sugar
  • 40g plain flour, sifted
  • butter for greasing ramekins

Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C.

In a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Once the chocolate is melted, remove  from the heat and add in the butter. Mix until the butter is melted fully

In a medium mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Then add the chocolate/butter mixture into the eggs and the plain flour and mix until well incorporate.

Butter the bottom and sides of the ramekins and pour the mixture about 3/4 way full.

Place the ramekins on a baking tray and bake for about 10-15 minutes. Shorter for a gooey inside, longer for a slightly stiff inside.

Serve hot with vanilla ice cream or with a dusting of powdered sugar.
