The Easiest Chocolate Lava Cake Ever (No Eggs!)

Updated: Jul 6

It's not often that I'll say something is the easiest ever. But this really is the easiest chocolate lava cake ever. No freezing, no eggs, no dusting the ramekin, no double boiling and no electric mixer!

This lava cake is the perfect indulgent dessert for one or two people (date night, anyone?) and takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.


With an oozing chocolate centre and rich chocolate cake, this is a chocoholic's dream dish. I dusted mine with icing sugar, but it is also amazing served with ice cream, whipped cream or fresh berries!

This chocolate lava cake needs no eggs, no dusting the ramekin, no freezing, and no electric mixer! Try the easiest recipe ever for a chocolate lava cake.


  • ¼ cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 60 g (2 oz / ¼ cup) unsalted butter, roughly chopped

  • ¼ cup plain flour

  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ¼ cup icing sugar / powdered sugar

  • ¼ cup milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F (fan-forced/convection) or 190°C / 375°C (standard). Generously grease a large 1-cup capacity ramekin with canola spray or cooking spray (the spray works much better than melted butter).

  2. Place chocolate chips and butter in a large heat-proof jug. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Whisk together with a fork until smooth.

  3. Add cocoa, flour, icing sugar and milk (in that order). Whisk with the fork until thick, shiny and smooth.

  4. Pour into the prepared ramekin and bake for 15 minutes. Place a plate upside-down on top of the ramekin and turn both the plate and the ramekin over. Gently lift the ramekin up to dislodge the cake. Dust with icing sugar and enjoy!

Notes Storage

  • The lava cake must be served immediately.
