I have adapted this recipe from The Healthy Food Guide Magazine, though I cannot find the original recipe, so I have just gone from memory of what I think the recipe was.

This recipe makes 4 small ramekin sized cakes.

Chocolate Lava Cake

100gm Dark Chocolate (I used 70% Lindt)
1/2 cup Lite Evaporated Milk
1 egg
3 TBSP Raw Caster Sugar
4 TBSP Plain Flour

Preheat oven to 200C.

Scald milk in microwave/saucepan and pour over chocolate in a heatproof jug. Stir until smooth, let cool slightly.

Whisk egg and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 mins. Add cooled chocolate mixture and plain flour and whisk a few times until combined.

Pour into greased and sugar lined ramekins or dariole moulds and bake for about 10 mins.

You want the edges to be risen slightly and the middle still slightly undercooked, for it to be molten in the middle.

Invert onto serving plates and serve with all things dessert, being custard, cream, ice cream, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, I could go on and on... :-)


*This recipe can be made gluten free by using GF flour or almond meal.
