Eggless Chocolate Lava Cake

Chocolate Lava Cake is a dessert that everybody love and makes quite a sensation every time. I want to share with you an eggless version of this delicious dessert that satisfies any chocolate lover. It’s rich, chocolaty, with a gooey molten center, one of the best chocolate treats ever.

The batter is very easy and quick to prepare and you can serve as it dusted with some powdered sugar on top, with fruits or with a good dollop of ice cream.

  6. Sara Author says:

    Can I cook, reheat, and serve at a later time?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hi Sara.

      You can, but it will not have the same lava effect .

  7. Tee Author says:

    Lovely, light and moist – texture was actually like it was made of egg. However, I didn’t get a molten middle as it just melted in with the mix. Maybe needed more chocolate in the middle ?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hi Tee.

      The recipe contains enough chocolate, you don't need to add extra.

  8. Tee Author says:

    Hello made this again yesterday but again no molten middle. What am I doing wrong?! What chocolate do you use? I used green and black 70% dark chocolate. Also what size aluminium foiled moulds do you use? I think mine might be a little large in size.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hello Tee.

      I use muffin cup.

  9. D Author says:

    For the chocolate: is it 22g/piece so 88g total? Or is it 22g divides into 4 (5.5g each)? Thanks!

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:


      It is 22g divides into 4

  10. FERRY LINARDI Author says:

    Dear Ella,
    What kind of oil

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hi Ferry.

      It is about rapeseed oil.

  11. Piyush Author says:

    Which type of milk did u use?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      I use whole milk.

  13. Barbara Author says:

    I was wondering if chocolate chips could be used instead of the chocolate pieces and if so, how many chips in each would you recommend?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hi Barbara.

      Sure,you can use chocolate chips how many you like. Try 5 pieces.

  14. Juan Author says:

    Hi, made these today, all was successful until I got them out of the tin. When I released them after the cooling time, the cake came out and the square of chocolate was stuck to the top of the tin – this left me with a square of chocolate and a cake with a square cut out of it. 🙁 I don’t understand why this happened.

  15. Juan Author says:

    Can someone tell me what size ramekin / tin i need to use?

  16. Jessica shoemaker Author says:

    Can you use almond milk instead? And if I triple the recipe to fill my entire muffin tin will the temperature stay the same?

  17. Ruth Author says:

    Any idea if this would work with a milk substitute ( e.g. oat milk) to make it non-dairy?

  18. Steve Author says:

    The cake came out well but not the center.. seems like the chocolate I put got burnt or cooked with the cake itself. Am I doing something wrong?

  19. Tanu Author says:

    Hello mam,

    I have tried the above recipe. But chocolate didn’t melt after the baking. it showed me complete chocolate pieces inside the cake. I have also used the muffin cups. I tried this with morde as well as dairy milk chocolate. But no luck

    Please help me in understanding where I did it wrongly.


  20. apostolis Author says:

    hello, very good idea to think of such a recipe without eggs and butter.
    However, I baked it for 20 minutes at the heated air on 2nd height (from the bottom of my oven) but it turned out to be cake. I think 20 minutes is too much…
    I used 0% fat free milk and I used the one-time use caps.
    Then, I did again but baked it at the 3rd height of my oven for 10 minutes, it was quite wet but not as it looks in your video.
    Anyway, I need your directions to make it right and perfect
    Any ideas????
    Many thanks in anticipation….

  21. Akhila Author says:

    Can this be done in a cupcake pan?

  22. Devika Author says:

    This recipe was amazing…so chocolatey and perfect
    This had easily become by sweet fix????????

  23. Rani Author says:

    I would love to read your blogs and it gives me the inspiration to cook even more better with better recipes. One thing I want to share is I’m in love with your blog. Thanks for sharing such a good blog that made my day.

  24. John Author says:

    Do I need to get some molds, or can I use a muffin pan? These cakes look great! There used to be a mix, for making them. But for some reason, the company that mad ethe mix, eventually stopped making it. NO idea why.

  25. jenni Author says:

    Amazing ! I accidentally filled the ramekins a little too much so it spilled over a bit ..oops! My ramekins are really tiny. Even so, these lava cakes were amazing!
    Thank you for the recipe !
