The ooey gooey center in this chocolate cake is definitely mind- blowing, so I’m sure it will be a hit whenever you make. The measurements here make 4 small souffle cups, but don’t worry about their size. They are absolutely enough as these are wonderfully chocolaty and nobody wants to get the second, at least in my family.

    This is a really unclear recipe. Is the sugar meant to be added to the saucepan, or do you add the butter to a mixing bowl? Also, it doesn’t tell you to wait for the butter to cool, so when I added the first egg it started to cook and I had to pick cooked egg out of my mix!

    Please fix this recipe because it looks really yum but I’m not a baker so I don’t know what to do with it.

      Please delete my comment. I had two recipes open and posted this on the wrong recipe! This one is super easy! :)

    I just tried this recipe and I’m not sure if it’s just me… or my oven… but it surely does not bake in 13/14 minutes at 200C. I’ve also looked at multiple recipes that bake around 400C for 12/13/14 minutes. So… I think there’s at typo in this recipe…

    I made this yesterday and it was absolutely delicious and easy!!! Thank you!

  4. Rene Hancock says

    An you use ghee instead of butter? And what kind of flour did you use?

  5. Alana says

    This looks amazing and I’m going to try this tonight, although are you using pain or self raising flour?

  6. Sue Hamilton says

    The finished result was wonderful, but the Preheat/bake instructions need adjusting… 200 degrees was not set at all…I quickly checked other like recipes and adjusted degrees to 425 degrees and watched until sides were set…guessing 13-14 minutes should do trick. Again loved taste but adjust bake degrees.

      200 C (Celsius) is approximately 400 F (392 degrees Fahrenheit).


  1. […] On Christmas Day I will only be with my mom. Although it’s just the two of use I like to make it a little party. So we will start with a little cocktail like sgroppino, pear vodka or hot apple cider. For dinner I will make something festive. We’re not big meat lovers but we can’t stand some special meat like roasted guinea fowl or honey glazed rabbit. After dinner, we will settle down in front of the tv to watch a cheesy Christmas movie and eat our dessert (classic tiramisu or chocolate lava cake). […]
