Eggless Chocolate Lava Cake

Eggless Chocolate Lava Cake

Watch the video for this recipe:

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.

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

Hi Sara.

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

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 ?

Hi Tee.

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

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.

Hello Tee.

I use muffin cup.

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


It is 22g divides into 4

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?

Hi Barbara.

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

There is nothing better than a really good lava cake, and it looks as though this one hits the mark! Can’t resist that melted chocolate. Regards MasterRusk

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???? Please.... Many thanks in anticipation....

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.

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 ! :)

Glad you enjoyed them :)
