  • Hi, that’s probably because your didn’t use cooking chocolate

  • What is the exact name of “Cooking chocolate”?

    Looks great and I like the fact you can make just one at a time when you want one.
    Thanks!

    • @ Nancy – In India we get different brands like Morde. You could get it in any bakery shops. It is also known as Modelling chocolate. Or just use some semi sweet choco chips

  • can u use syrup instead of the chocolate peice

    Reply
    • Hi Muskan. You cannot use chocolate syrup before baking coz it is already in liquid form & I’m not sure what would happen once microwaved. Only if you use a block of chocolate will it melt and you’ll get a gooey center

  • is bourneville modelling chocolate

    Reply
    • I’ve used it. It doesn’t melt a lot. But it still gives a nice chocolatey center. it is not however modelling chocolate

      Reply
  • I tried it, it was really very tasty but the chocolate apparently did not melt at all. Instead of a choco lava cake I got choco centred cake. ( I too use morde chocolate) and I microwaved my cake for two and a half minutes. I followed your recipe dot to dot too . Help please.

    • Hi Someone, :)

      Sounds like a wonderful idea! YEa, give it a try!

      Reply
  • This one sounds way better than one i tried. It didn’t have melted chocolate in the center

    Reply
  • Well there is the easier alternative instead of using the huge chunk of baking chocolate. When you are done with the mixture, tap the bottom of the mug on the counter a few times then put it into the refrigerator for about 30 to 45 minutes or in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes. Because then you get the mixture to stand still, microwave immediately from removal of refrigerator or freezer and microwave it for barely a minute or more if needed. It may look like it is not fully cooked but it will be and just let it set for at least a minute. Your gooey center will be awaiting! I tried this and I have succeeded, I wouldn’t have posted this if it were not true.

    • Thanks for the idea. I shall try it out :)

  • Turned ok but very spongy.

    Reply
  • hi….. if i leave the lava cake over the night, can i reheat the next day?….will the lava get harden the next day?

    Reply
    • Its actually just chocolate in the center. Refrigerating will harden the chocolate. Reheat for a minute and it should be okay.

      But I prefer making the batter and chilling it rather than chilling the cake itself. It only takes about a minute to cook so I don’t like making the cake & storing it.

  • Came out irresistibly delicious! :) , I added 3 tbs of heavy cream , and 1 of half & half for the milk plus a little extra powdered sugar and a drop more butter , and a tsp of vanilla and it was perfect , plus i didn’t have any baking chocolate so I substituted that by tacking a small hand full of semi-sweet chocolate chips and squeezing my hand so they stuck together and formed a lump . Thank you so much for a great basic recipe .

    Thanks:)

  • I like that this is made without eggs, but I just wasn’t crazy about the finished product. I used good quality swiss chocolate squares and cooked it for 1 minute at 50% power in my microwave…and still it was fully cooked with no soft center. I added chocolate fudge and salted caramel sauce on top just to make it softer….if I make this again I’ll only bake for 30 seconds and leave out the salt. Even without the salted caramel it was unnecessary.

  • Is it possible to cook this in an oven? If so, on what temperature and for how long?

  • can i use dairy milk chocolate??

    • No, Dairy milk will not melt properly.. Best to use cooking chocolate slabs. .

  • i have freezed dairy milk chocolate overnight …now will it work???

    Reply
    • No. Please choose a chocolate that will melt in the microwave. If you want, you can try your diary milk. I have never found it to be a good “melter”

  • Hey the taste was great but I was not very happy with the texture. It wasn’t moist and soft. How can I make it soft?

  • OH MY GOD !!!!
    I love your recipe
    I had two failed attempts of making a cake and after seeing this recipe I was very tempted to make it and it turned out to be perfect !!!

  • Hey there, its a nice recipe. However when I tried the cake wasn’t as moist or glossy as it looks in the pic. Did I do something wrong???

  • Terrible recipe. It tastes very rubbery and looks nothing like the picture.

  • Hii!! i love this recipe but can i use chocolate beans/bunties instead of cooking chocolate?

    Reply
  • Mine came out cooked all the way through, no molten chocolate in the middle. I cooked it for 1.5 minutes and used a chocolate piece for the middle. Any tips so that I don’t end up with a chewy chocolate cake that’s rather bitter instead of sweet?

  • The batter is hella liquidy

  • absultie yummy

  • I’ve made this a couple times now. I love it! the only changes I make is that I only use 2-3 T. of milk and i use broken dark chocolate pieces.

    Reply
  • Hi I was wondering if I can reduce the amount of sugar? I really want to try this but almost every recipes uses equal amount of flour and sugar and I’m not sure why..Also, does molten lava cake mean that the inside is uncooked..? Please let me know and thank you!
