That’s right. If you don’t have the patience to make a traditional lava cake, you can whip one up in the microwave in almost no time. (But if you do want to make it the old-fashioned way, here’s our favorite recipe for molten chocolate cake.)
This recipe from The Yummy Life uses a brownie mix for maximum easiness. The fudgy center is thanks to a Dove Promises chocolate candy. See? Insanely simple.
You will need:
- Brownie mix + additional ingredients (usually oil and eggs)
- 1 extra egg
- Dove Dark Chocolate Promises
You’ll also need custard cups or ramekins.
Top your finished cakes with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Recipe creator Monica says a “family size” box of Pillsbury brownie mix made 8 lava cakes.
