- 1/2 (64g) cup all-purpose flour.
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Take four ramekin bowls or custard cups and grease, then with a little melted butter and cocoa powder and keep them aside.
- Take a large bowl, add butter, bittersweet chocolate, and semi-sweet chocolate into it, and microwave all of the three things together for about 1 minute (time may vary, so keep a check), till all the butter is melted.
- After taking out the bowl from the microwave, whisk all the three things together to make sure that have combined properly.
- Once the melted chocolate and butter combine, add the powdered sugar into the bowl and blend everything again.
- Once the sugar is blended properly, add the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla extract into the bowl and whisk everything together.
- After whisking everything together, shift the flour into the mixed batter of chocolate which you made and fold the flour into the mixture with a spatula.
- The mixture should be in a liquid form; not too flowing, not too thick.
- Once all the ingredients have been combined completely, divide the batter into the four greased ramekin bowls or custard cups or muffin pan.
- Keep the bowls in the pre-heated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 12-13 minutes (time may vary a bit, so keep a check).
- After 13 minutes, open the oven to check that the sides of the lava cake have been cooked well and the center is soft.
- Once all the confirmation of the above said information is done, remove the cake(s) from the oven and let them cool down for a minute.
- Once cooled, remove the cake from the bowls and serve them with vanilla ice cream (if you like).
- Don't forget to pre-heat the oven for 1-2 minutes as it will help in baking the cake faster.
- Don't forget to grease the cake tin as it makes it easier to remove the cake from the tin once it is ready.
- Always remember to shift the dry ingredients before you combine them with the wet ingredients as it strains out all the unwanted lumps.
