Decadent Chocolate Lava Cakes

Welcome back to Doozydoo’s Dessert Corner, where sweet treats are a piece of cake! Today, we’re diving into a dessert that will get the ‘ooze’ and ‘ahs’ at your next dinner party: the classic Chocolate Lava Cake. It’s a perfect symphony of rich chocolate cake with a heart of gooey, molten chocolate that flows like a dream.


  • 1 cup of high-quality semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter (plus extra for greasing)
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Preheat and Prep: Start by preheating your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease your ramekins with butter and dust them with cocoa powder to prevent sticking. This will also add an extra layer of chocolate flavor.
  2. Melt with Love: In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips and butter together until they’re smooth and inseparable. You can also microwave them in 30-second bursts, stirring in between.
  3. Mix It Up: Once melted, whisk in the powdered sugar until well combined. Then, one by one, crack the eggs into the mixture, followed by the vanilla and salt, and whisk away.
  4. The Final Flourish: Sift in the flour and fold gently. You want to keep the air in so that your cakes are light and tender.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Pour the batter into the prepared ramekins and bake for 12-14 minutes. The edges should be firm, but the center should jiggle just a bit.
  6. The Grand Reveal: Let the cakes sit for 1 minute, then cover each ramekin with an inverted plate and turn over. Lift the ramekin, and voilà, the lava should flow!
  7. Garnish and Serve: Dust with powdered sugar, add a dollop of whipped cream, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Berries also make a delightful and fresh addition.

These Chocolate Lava Cakes are not just a dessert; they’re an experience. Each bite takes you on a journey from the spongy cake to the warm, liquid center that’s as rich and mysterious as a love sonnet.

So there you have it, folks! A dessert that’s bound to make you the talk of the town. Give it a try and let us know how your Chocolate Lava Cake turns out. Remember, at Doozydoo, it’s all about making life sweeter, one dessert at a time.

Happy Baking!
