TN&M in the Kitchen: Chocolate Fondant (Molten Lava Cake)

By: Jasmine Boni-Ball Writer & Journalist | Specialist Fashion & Travel


Chocolate Fondant (Molten Lava Cake)

Serves 4 - Cook in 40 minutes 


- 150g dark chocolate 

- 80g butter

- 20g all-purpose flour

- 10g unsweetened cocoa powder 

- 2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk 

- 80 powdered sugar

- Vanilla essence or rum


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius (°C). Melt the dark chocolate in either the microwave or bagnomaria. Mix well and add the butter, continuing to mix until it melts.

Step 2

With either a hand whisk or electric mixer, beat the eggs, followed by the powdered sugar. Continue to whisk, adding the melted chocolate, unsweetened cocoa powder, flour and vanilla essence (or rum).  

Step 3

Grease and dust single-portion aluminum containers or ramekins with cocoa powder. Fill 2/3 of each container with the batter and bake for 13-15 minutes. Serve still hot with a touch of powdered sugar. (N.B. Keep in mind that every oven is different and when serving the Chocolate Fondant, it should have a melting molten middle, so test one to find the right temperate and baking time). Buon Appetito!
