Molten Lava Cake for One

One of my favorite things to order for dessert in a restaurant is Molten Lava Cake. I love chocolate and it's the ultimate chocolate dessert. I've never made it before, but I was really craving some deep dark chocolate so I searched for a recipe. Of course, I had to do my own little tweaks. I'm sure you'll find the finished product to be delicous. Add/remove sugar to your own desire. I prefer the chocolate without sweetness.

1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon flour

(See below for complete directions)

  • Preheat oven to 400F.

  • Melt chocolate chips and butter in microwave for 30 seconds, until almost melted.

  • Stir in coconut oil until chocolate is fully melted.

  • With whisk, in vanilla and sugar.

  • Slowly add egg, beating so egg does not cook..

  • Stir in flour.

  • Spray ramekin with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. (Center will still look soft.)

  • Use a knife to gently release the cake from rim.

  • Put plate on top of ramekin and flip over.

  • Serve with powdereed sugar, ice cream, or whipped cream.
