Chocolate Molten Lava Cake Recipe

Start by turning your oven to 450° C. Just kidding! Another great thing about this recipe is there's no baking.


In each large mug, add

  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 heaped tbsp cocoa

Stir all these together until mixed well. Then add

  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 3 tbsp milk (full cream or skim, you choose)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp orange zest
  • a pinch salt

Now whisk all of these together until almost completely mixed i.e. there should be a small amount of dry ingredients still not mixed.

Break up one row of your favorite milk chocolate and place on top of cake mix.

Cook in your microwave for one minute then take out and stir. Place in your microwave again this time for 30 seconds.

Add your choice of garnish and this is ready for your taste buds.

As you can see you could half prepare a few of these prior to your guests arriving. Then when you're ready just add the wet ingredients to complete.

That's all there is to making this highly addictive chocolate treat. Easy, right?
