Recipe type/ Τύπος Πιάτου: Dessert
Ingredients/ Συστατικά
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 142 gr. / 5 oz. chocolate (I used 55% cocoa but I am sure any chocolate will do fine)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream, for serving (optional)
  • Fresh berries, for serving (optional)
  • Fruit coulis, for serving(optional)
  • Caster sugar (definitely what I have used)
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Preheat oven to 175 C / 350 F.
  2. Spray 8 4-ounce (or 112 gr.) ramekins with cooking oil or margarine and dust with flour, tapping out the excess.
  3. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate with the butter.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and the sugar until light and fluffy.
  5. Stir in the flour and the chocolate mixture.
  6. Transfer the batter to the ramekins and bake.
  7. Now here is the trick.
  8. I baked them for 15 minutes, but you should see which time is appropriate for your oven.
  9. If you want lava cakes then 15 minutes is the max.
  10. If you want normal cakes then bake for 20 minutes.
  11. Run a knife around the sides of the chocolate cakes and invert them onto serving plates.
  12. Top with either one of the above choices and serve them immediately so as to have the melting effect.
