Chocolate Lava Cake is an extremely simple treat to make and even the most amateur of bakers should find it a no-brainer. The thing is, though, sometimes even the simplest of things are still too complicated for us in this modern time-pressed age and the only food we are willing to make is the one that takes literally five minutes to prepare.
Enter the Cheat Lava Cake, so good that no one will ever know you didn’t clobber the ingredients together on your own!
How To Do It:
Grab a box of your favourite chocolate cake mix, some decadent chocolate bars and preheat your oven. Mix cake as per instructions. Grab some ramekins or cupcake liners, grease them, spoon in half the batter, put a few pieces of the chocolate bar, top with more batter. Bake as per instructions and voila’! Cut, to enjoy a gooey treat!
Want to make the chocolate lava cake more decadent? Grab a spoonful of Nutella instead of chocolate to make it into a hazelnut surprise and if you want texture, add some crushed nuts to the mix to add a bit more of a twist. There are plenty of ways to twist this gorgeous treat into a customised version, you can add peanut butter, pureed berries, coloured candy melts or even some chilli (like the Mexicans do).
