Chocolate Lava Cakes: An Easy Dessert Just in Time for Valentine’s Day


  • Non-stick spray
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 oz. bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 oz. semisweet chocolate
  • 1 ¼ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour


  • Preheat the oven to 425℉. With the non-stick baking spray, cover four custard cups and place them on a baking sheet.
  • Add the butter, semisweet chocolate, and bittersweet chocolate into a large bowl. Heat the ingredients in the microwave for one minute, or until the butter is melted. Then whisk until all of the chocolate is melted.
  • In the large bowl, mix in the sugar. Add and whisk the eggs and egg yolks. Add in the vanilla. Finally, stir in the flour.
  • Divide this mixture among the four custard cups.
  • Bake for 13 minutes, or until the sides are firm and centers are soft. Let it stand for at least one minute.
  • Optional: Sift some powdered sugar over the top of the cakes.
  • Carefully turn over the custard cup onto a plate so the lava cake easily falls out. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
