If you feel you have too much cake batter for your cake tin place two small portions into 2 ramekins and cook for about 15- 20 minutes and you will have lava cakes ready before your cake is done!


Ingredients (serves 10 | makes 10 portions)

  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 200g chocolate
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 250g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence

Method

  1. in a pot add the sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate, honey, vanilla essence, hot water and coconut oil and place on medium-low heat until well combined
  2. let the pot cool down ( just to make sure you don't cook your eggs when mixing all ingredients together), in a bowl place the flour and eggs together, grab a whisk and start pouring the warm chocolate mixture into the bowl until well combined
  3. in a 20cm round non-stick pop out tin, butter the sides and base and then coat with flour, then add the mixture to the cake tin and cook in a 150-degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until just cooked through

Notes... This cake seems to be a hit and is super moist and rich and goes perfectly with some thickened cream on the side.

  • Hi again Maddison, printed out the recipe, placed the ingredients in the saucepan on heat, scrolled down recipe and was about to add further ingredients but got totally confused about the 250g of butter in the ingredient list. The method only states to butter the tin …250g of butter ? that’s a hell of a lot of butter to grease the tin I thought. Maybe some was for adding to the cake mixture I thought so I did. But sadly my cake was a real flop. Could you please clarify the recipe for me and the fellow moms. Thanks.


    • hi, yes the cake requires 250g of butter and extra for the cake tin

  • Thinking might just try baking paper to cook in.

  • Like the idea you have for leftovers, maybe make all of it in ramekins that they are single serves plus quicker.

  • You are tempting me. I love chocolate cakes. And because of the coconut oil, it probably has a coconut aftertaste too. Great combination!!


    • Coconut oil doesn’t have a big coconut flavour, i doubt it would be detectable at all, it would just help make a super moist cake

  • Hi Maddison, I am not a fan of the flour around the side …could you please explain why you do this instead of maybe using baking paper. But apart from that the cake looks amazingly delicious. I will be giving it a try. thanks so much for sharing.


    • I buttered and floured the sides and bottom on an addition to the non-stick cake tin, but if you prefer baking paper that’s good too
