I am not going to sell on the concept of how amazing it is, but I am selling chocolate lava cake to you on how extremely fuss free it is to make them! Nonetheless, some fine tuning and attention is definitely needed for the baking time!
As per my usual style, I will be breaking down my sharing into the taste and texture, method of preparation and ingredients.
For the taste and texture, I don’t think I can ever share enough of it so let me summarize it in a two lines!
It is an awesome mix of gooey and warm chocolate that comes with a mouth of slightly spongey cake, best if it is served with not-too-sweet jam or vanilla ice cream!
Next up, the method. Which careful attention needs to be paid here, especially to make the perfect chocolate lava cake!
Always make sure to be watching your cake as it cooks! This is because the recipe only serves as a general guideline and the difference in brands of ovens and equipment can end up your lava cake to be a sponge cake. The best way to tell, is through your eyes.
Observe the surface of the cake a couple of minutes before the cook time. It should form a layer of sponge or is about to form a layer of sponge. Once it is formed, you can prepare to take it out immediately!
Another thing to take note is to sift your ingredients and to get rid of any clumps. This is so that the lava flowing out will be silky smooth!
