Single Serve Molten Lava Cake

Total Time 40 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 1 8oz cake


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1.76 oz good quality dark chocolate chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 tbsp sugar depending on your sweetness preference
  • 2 tsp all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter and cocoa powder for coating the ramekin
  • Optional: Vanilla ice cream to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • Melt butter and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 15-second intervals until just melted. Mix and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and sugar for 5-7 minutes until light, thick, and frothy.
  • Gently combine the melted butter and chocolate mixture with the egg mixture.
  • Sift in the flour and salt, gently whisking in a folding motion until just combined.
  • Generously coat an 8oz ramekin with softened butter, add 1 tsp of cocoa powder, tap, and rotate to spread. Tap out the excess.
  • Pour the batter into the ramekin, leaving a little room for the cake to rise.
  • Bake for about 10-11 minutes, keeping an eye on it. The cake should be firmer on the sides but slightly jiggly in the center.
  • Let the cake rest in the ramekin for 1 minute. Release the edges with a butter knife and carefully turn it out.
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream and savor the moment!
