Microwave Eggless Molten Lava Cake Recipe / 1 Min Lava Cake Recipe


I have been getting request of posting lava cake from many of my viewers. So i thought of trying it. I have shared a eggless lava cake recipe. But i wanted to try the traditional lava cake recipe. One day i got the spirit to make it, but when i looked in my fridge i was out eggs. But i wanted to make lava cake because i was craving for it so much. Then i decided to try microwave version. And i was totally surprised by the result, it was perfect and i loved it so much.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..


Preparation Time : 2 min
Cooking Time : 1 min
Serves : 1
Recipe Source: Tarla Dalal

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 tblspn
Cocoa Powder - 11/2 tsp
Sugar - 1 tblspn 
Baking Powder - 1/8 tsp or a pinch
Baking Soda / Cooking Soda - 1/8 tsp or a pinch
Salt a pinch
Milk - 4 tblspn
Oil - 2 tsp + 1 tsp for greasing bowl
Chocolate Bar ( Use dairymilk, silk, good melting chocolate)

Method:

Take all the ingredients except chocolate in a bowl and mix really well. 

Now grease a ramekin bowl really well with oil.

Pour the batter in and place chocolate chunk in the center.

Pop this in microwave and cook for 1 min on high power.

Remove it and let it sit for 2 to 3 mins.

Now run a butter knife in the sides and invert it to a plate.

Cut and enjoy the molten lava cake..

Notes:

1)I used a 250 ml microwave safe ramekin to cook this.
2)Use good quality melting chocolate for the best lava part. Dairy milk, bournville, dairymilk silk is perfect.
3)Dont over cook the cake, it will get cooked in 1 min. After you remove the cake from oven it will keep on cooking.
4)Cook on high temp in microwave.

HERE IS A QUICK VIDEO:


Pictorial:
Take all your ingredients

Take flour in a bowl

Add in sugar

add salt

cocoa powder

baking soda and baking powder

mix well

add in milk

and oil or butter

mix well..The batter will be very very runny

Take a ramekin

Oil it really well..Because this what makes the
cake slide out easily later

This is really important..grease really well

pour the very liquidy batter into the bowl

once it is filled

take a good chocolate bar.you can use something
 like dairymilk, silk or whatever..

i put two big chunks in

pop this in microwave

cook for 1 min

remove it and let it cool down for 2 to 3 mins

run a butter knife around the sides

invert it to a plate

cut it to see the molten lava part

OMG it is delicious..

  27. @himankMade this today and it was the most delicious dessert I made under 5 mins. To those who find their chocolate not melted try using chocolate in room temp and not straight from fridge and you can also chop it into smaller pieces and be generous in the amount of chocolate you put. Also use a good quality cocoa powder I used bensdorp and it was delicious.

  39. @Anonymousit is mentioned in the recipe, if you have a 1/4 tsp measuring spoon use half the measure that is 1/8th spoon

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi Arti, please advice me how to cook food in microwave n keep it soft bcoz anything I cook or heat up in the microwave turns hard as soon as it cools down. I tried some of your recipes and it turned out wonderful but got hard n lost its taste as soon as it cooled down.

    ReplyDelete
  41. @AnonymousIt is because of microwave, since it heats in really high temp. no solution for that.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hii..i tried it n my cake ws nyc n tasty but as i tried removng fem bowl it dint cme n broke..wht cud b d reason n 1/8 is less than 1/4 or more n can u temme lyk whts itz propr measurment

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi Aarthi,

    You have mentioned in one of ur posts that ur microwave is 800w... my microwave is 1100w and I m not able to adjust the power level exactly to 800w.. so how many minutes shd I hav my cake baked with 1100w power?

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Anonymousu should bake it for less time say 45 secs.

    ReplyDelete
  45. @Jamila Inayatit may be because you didn't grease the bowl properly. 1/8th tsp is half the amount in 1/4th tsp

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thank you Aarthi.. the cake was awesome and my husband loved it ☺ .. so can I continue this timing (45sec instead of 1min) for all the cakes that you have posted for microwave baking?

    Say for example for the vanilla cake you have baked it for 3 mins and can I do it for (0.45 ×3) 1.35 min in my microwave(1100Watts) ?

  47. hii

    ReplyDelete
  48. @red roseoh ok..you can grate the chocolate and put it n the middle for melting evenly

  71. Hi..

    Bumped into your blog yesterday, and tried your recipe today. I dunno where I went wrong, but my chocolate didn't melt. Tried twice to make sure, but no luck. First I used Dairy milk (not silk), and then Galaxy chocolate. Bot were at room temp. Followed the measurements, but had to cook for more time (I think my oven wattage is less). Still it isn't molten lava.. what could be wrong?

  118. Hi! Aarthi,
    I am new to microwave baking/ cooking. And the first recipe that I tried was the choco lava cake.

    I increased the quantity of milk to 5 tbsp as the batter was not smooth.

    and cooked it for 1 min only. I did not select microwave method.

    The cake was yummy. My family enjoyed it.

    Thank you. Keep posting your delicious recipes.
