Warning: the dessert you are about to create and consume is extremely chocolatey. It will kill your chocolate craving really fast. That aside, enjoy the most awesome 5-minute chocolate molten lava cake you've ever tried!
Step 1: Gather the ingredients
The secret here is using melted dark chocolate. Cocoa powder doesn't hold a candle to it, and using bar chocolate negates the need for adding milk or oil while producing a really moist cake.
- 2 oz. dark chocolate bar (60% cocoa)
- 2 oz. butter
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 3 tbsp. flour
- 1 egg
- 1 chocolate truffle (Lindt truffles work great)
The chocolate truffle creates the warm oozy chocolate center of your cake. Be sure to freeze it ahead of time and it will melt just perfectly once the cake is finished cooking.
