This month sweet punch was Molten Lava cake.  When I saw this challenge I was so happy cos this is wonderful and irresistible cake for the chocoholic person.  If you are so then don't wait.... more than I say how delicious and say blah blah ....and bore you just scroll to the last picture and understand how it tastes.  It tastes so divine when you serve warm and here you go for the recipe....

Molten Lava Cake


Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate – 4 oz (113g)
Butter – 4 oz (113g)
Eggs – 2
Sugar – 1/3 cup (75 g)
All-purpose Flour – 1/4 cup (40g)
Butter – for greasing ramekins

Secret ingredient that goes in the middle of the batter :

Raspberries - 2 for each ramkin (optional)
Chocolate chip - 1/2 tbsp of each ramkin(this is a must)

Mix both the berries and chocolate and keep it aside.



1. In a double boiler, melt chocolate.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, beat Eggs and Sugar until light and fluffy.
3. Once chocolate is melted, remove pan from heat and add in butter. Mix until the butter melts fully.
4. Add chocolate/butter mixture into the eggs, add all-purpose flour and mix until well incorporated.
5. Butter bottom and sides of ramekins (small glass/porcelain bowls) and pour in mixture about 3/4 way full.

6. Now in the middle of the cake batter spoon raspberry and chocolate mixure and using the skewer push it inside  OR you can also do this way,  Pour little batter in the ramkin, spoon the berry and chocolate mixture in the middle and pour the remaining batter on the top.
6. Place ramekins on a baking tray and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 C) for 10 – 15 minutes. 

 7. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
