  • Add egg and egg yolk and mix completely.
  • Add flour and cocoa powder and stir until incorporated.

Notes

  • Instead of using a non stick spray, you can coat the ramekins with butter and dust cocoa powder at the bottom and on the walls of the ramekins.
  • You can serve chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, strawberries or raspberries.
  • To save time, make the batter ahead of time and bake it in the ramekins right before serving. Make sure the batter is at room temperature.
  • Thirteen minutes is perfect timing to make sure the lava cake is firm on the outside and on the inside!
