Create a storytelling style description of at least 200 to 300 words about the recipe Chocolate Lava Cake – When You Cut It Open, Magic Happens!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease four ramekins or custard cups and place them on a baking sheet.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in 30-second intervals until smooth. Stir in the powdered sugar until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla extract until well blended.
  4. Combine the chocolate mixture with the egg mixture and then stir in the flour and a pinch of salt until just combined.
  5. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared ramekins. Place them on the baking sheet in the preheated oven.
  6. Bake for about 12-14 minutes or until the sides are set, but the centers are still soft.
  7. Remove from the oven and let them cool for a minute. Run a knife around the edges to loosen, and then invert each lava cake onto a plate.
  8. When you cut open the cake, the magic happens as warm, gooey chocolate lava flows out!
  9. Serve immediately, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dusting of powdered sugar.
