Afnan looooves lava cake.
The easiest one to get is from Dominos Pizza.
But the cake alone is close to RM9.
(Kedekut pulak.. padahal my tall latte costs more than that.. haha)
Anyway, inspired by the recent Masterchef episode recently (no, not the Malaysian version), I decided to try my hand at this. I mean, it only needs 5 ingredients.
It doesn’t need a mixer. And since today Unaisah behaves well (she’s the new addition to the family), I had time.
And succeedeed!! Yeay.. so gave me a reason, purpose to blog… Hahahahaha
Here’s the recipe that I tweaked from here.
(i cut the recipe to one egg).
Molten Lava Cake
2oz of dark chocolate (or any old cooking choc)
2 oz butter
Melt the chocolate over double boiler then add the butter
Put aside to cool
Beat these till bubbly and slight foamy.
Add in the chocolate mixture.
Blend into the chocolate mixture.
2 medium size Rameskin
Grease and flour the rameskin and pour chocolate mixture into rameskin.
This mixture is enough for two medium rameskin.
Since mine was smaller, it fitted into 3 small rameskin (just enuff for Sorfina, Afnan and I).
Bake in preheated oven for 10mins (15 mins max, else you wouldnt get that lava ooey goeey stuff. Maybe less for smaller rameskin). My oven was set to 180ºC. This slightly higher than the usual temperature I use to bake cakes. What you want is the outer to cook quickly, but the inside stays liquid.
So, there. Little ingredients. Little time. Minimum effort.
But a whole lot of deliciousness…
Sorry no pics though.
ps: what i love about the recipe is that it is easy to remember. Here’s my train of thought:
Double oz choc = 2oz
Butter same as choc = 2oz
Sugar in gram, but same as above. 20g
Last, flour, half of sugar. 10g.
