Recipe: Molten Lava Cake

For 4 serving. Time consumed; 30-40minutes

Ingredients: (All can be bought in poon huat- it's halal)
40g of semi-sweet 
(Those that won't harden, if you not sure, ask the auntie, otherwise grab the Poon huat brand)

8 Tbs. unsalted butter – cut into small cubes
6 Tbs. all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup of icing sugar
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 egg – room temperature
2 egg yolk – room temperature
4 custard ramekins – 2 inches deep
Whipped cream and/or ice cream – optional

*Note: is a MUST to use the ceramic ramekins, and not muffin pan.

  1. Preheat oven to 215 degrees C and place oven rack in center position.
  2. Grease 2 ramekins with non-stick spray or butter and place on a baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. Place butter and chocolate into a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high, until butter and chocolate melt. Whisk to combine. Mixture should be completely melted and very smooth.
  4. Sift the sugar into the melted chocolate mixture, add the salt and whisk together, until smooth and thoroughly combined.
  5. In a small bowl or measuring cup, lightly whisk together the egg(s), egg yolk(s) and vanilla extract.
  6. Gradually whisk the egg mixture into the chocolate. Mix, until thoroughly combined.
  7. Sift the flour into the chocolate mixture and mix gently to combine, just until the flour disappears. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  8. Evenly pour the batter into ramekins and bake for about 13-15 minutes, until edges are set and center is soft. Mine were perfect at 13 minutes, but ovens vary. Allow to cool for a minute or two, before handling.
  9. Run a knife or thin metal spatula around the edge of each ramekin to loosen. Holding the ramekin with a dish towel, invert it onto the serving plate. 
  10. Dust cakes with powdered sugar, if desired. And I gotten ice cream home, my sister should be digging only the vanilla, but she scoop all three flavours, but nonetheless, it taste real good !
Please be quick, and eat it within less than 20minutes, otherwise the chocolate will harden and there won't be the lava cake effect ! It's soft on the outside, and rich in chocolate on the inside !
