A gooey, delicious, quick and easy chocolate treat!
Chocolate lava cup
- 400g good-quality dark chocolate
- 400g butter
- 6 large eggs
- 4 large egg yolks
- 200g sugar
- 200g cake flour
- 12 blocks white chocolate (Toblerone works well)
Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
Melt the chocolate and butter together in a double boiler, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
Beat the eggs, yolks and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy.
Gradually add the egg mixture to the chocolate mixture, mixing well after each addition.
Slowly add the flour, a tablespoon at a time, stirring until smooth.
Lightly butter 12 medium-sized ramekins. Pour the mixture into the ramekins, up to about three-quarters full.
Bury 1 block of white chocolate in each pot. Bake until crisp on top, but gooey inside, about 12 – 14 minutes. Serve immediately.
