  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces high-quality semisweet chocolate
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and generously butter and flour four ramekins.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and semisweet chocolate together in 30-second increments, stirring until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Slowly add the melted chocolate mixture to the egg mixture, stirring constantly.
  5. Gradually fold in the flour and salt until the batter is smooth.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared ramekins.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges are set but the centers are still slightly soft.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool for a minute. Then, run a knife around the edges to loosen the cakes.
  9. Invert each ramekin onto a plate, and the molten lava cakes should slide out easily.
  10. Dust with powdered sugar, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and enjoy!
