Tips & Tricks: Chocolate Molten Cake

Chocolate Lava Cake Dessert

Some of you may be chocolate-d out from Valentine’s Day – but I’m not. This recipe is from Ghirardelli themselves, via, and it looks fantastic!

What You’ll Need
2 Oz. of 60% Cacao Bittersweet Baking Chocolate
1/4 Cup of Heavy Cream

4 Oz. of 60% Cacao Bittersweet Baking Chocolate
2 Large Eggs (Whole)
2 Large Egg (Yolks)
1/2 Cup of Unsalted Butter
1/3 Cup of Sugar
1/2 Tsp. of Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup of Cake Flower

Making the Molten Center
Step 1:
Chop the 2 Oz. of baking chocolate into 1 inch chunks.

Step 2:
Set up a double boiler and melt the chopped chocolate and the heavy cream together. Whisk the mixture while it melts to ensure it blends smoothly.

Step 3:
Move the chocolate to a bowl and refrigerate until firm (about two hours).

Step 4:
Roll the chocolate into six balls and refrigerate them.

Making the Cake
Step 1:
Gather six ramekins or custard cups (4 oz.) and spray them with cooking spray.

Step 2:
Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees F.

Step 3:
Chop the remaining 4 Oz. of baking chocolate into 1 inch chunks.

Step 4:
Chop the butter into chunks.

Step 5:
Set up a double boiler and melt the chopped chocolate and butter together. Whisk the mixture while it melts to ensure it blends smoothly.

Step 6:
Set an electric mixer to high speed and whisk together the sugar, the vanilla extract, the two whole eggs, and the two egg yolks. Mix until the mixture is thick and light (about five minutes).

Step 7:
Fold the melted chocolate and flour into the mixture until it’s just combined.

Step 8:
Spoon the mixture into the custard cups/ramekins and pop one of the chocolate balls into the middle of each one.

Step 9:
Bake the cakes for fifteen minutes (or until firm to the touch).

Step 10:
Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool for five minutes. Take a knife and run it around the inside of the ramekin/custard cup, flip the cup onto a plate, and the cake should fall out. Serve and enjoy!

First of all the guy come to my house was not pleasant, the guy that came was trying to charge me double the amount they quote me over the phone. when I asked the guy why the price is up he didn’t want to explain to me and he was being rude about it. What made this experience worst was the guy actually threaten me and telling me that’s not his company and telling me that I don’t care about what ever the company told him. He said it doesn’t matter what ever I do I will do in my way not the company way. Also the stain still there not even clean as supposed to. I fill I got robes my $104. I will never go back to this company and I will suggest no body should go to this company. The gentleman name that come was Fernando PH. - Falls Church, VA - 08/10/2019
