Picture this: a plate adorned with a perfectly baked chocolate lava cake, its velvety exterior giving way to an oozing river of molten chocolate. The epitome of indulgence, our Ultimate Chocolate Lava Cake is a masterpiece that marries the richness of dark chocolate with the thrill of a gooey center. It’s the dessert dreams are made of, and learning how to create it yourself is both rewarding and delightfully messy.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces high-quality dark chocolate
  • 1 and 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease and dust four ramekins with cocoa powder.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and dark chocolate together in 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
  3. Stir in the powdered sugar until well combined.
  4. Add the eggs and egg yolks, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  5. Blend in the vanilla extract.
  6. Gently fold in the flour and salt until just incorporated.
  7. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared ramekins.
  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are set but the center is still soft.
  9. Allow the cakes to cool for a minute, then carefully invert them onto plates.
  10. Serve immediately, dusted with powdered sugar or topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
