    Easiest Chocolate Lava Cake Recipe


    • 50g unsalted butter
    • 50g semi sweet chocolate
    • 25g plain flour
    • 35g castor sugar (reduced from 75g)
    • 1 large egg
    • 1/4 tsp vanilla essence


    1. Preheat oven to 200C. Butter two ramekins well.
    2. Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of hot water (or microwave it).
    3. Let it cool before adding sugar, then egg and vanilla essence, followed by flour. Mix well
    4. Pour the mixture into the ramekin and bake for 10-12 minutes. The tops should be firm to touch and the middles feel squidgy. Run a knife around the cake and turn out into serving plates.
