This chocolate lava cake is so easy and delicious! It tastes like it should have taken a lot more time and effort to make than it actually does! I love to serve it with fresh blackberries. I've been meaning to add some natural orange or mint flavor to the cake, but haven't gotten around to it yet - I'll make sure to post when I do!

How to Make Easy Chocolate Lava Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease four ramekins or souffle dishes with butter.
  • 2Melt bakers chocolate and butter over double boiler, stirring with wire whisk until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. The microwave works too (around 45 seconds on high), but be sure not to melt the butter too much, or it will be too soupy.
  • 3Add sugar to the chocolate mixture, whisking until smooth.
  • 4Add eggs and egg yolks, whisking until smooth.
  • 5Add flour, whisking until smooth.
  • 6Divide batter evenly among greased ramekins or souffle dishes, and place them on a baking pan.
  • 7Bake in preheated oven until the top crust looks done and firm, about 13 minutes. You might start to see bubbles forming along the edges. Be careful not to over-bake as this will cause the centers to harden!
  • 8Let stand for a few minutes until cool and then gently run a kitchen knife around the edges of the cakes to loosen from the ramekins. Put a serving plate upside down on top of the ramekins and flip over to invert the cake onto the plate.
  • 9If desired, use a sifter to dust the cakes with powdered sugar and place fresh berries around the plate. My favorite is blackberries!
