More about chocolate lava cake recipe 

I love to eat chocolate cake and chocolate lava is my favorite. I make chocolate cake always.  For perfect lava cake its important good quality o chocolate. I prefer to use Dairymilk chocolate or use chocolate chips as they melt easily.  

 Perfect cooking also important for a nice cake, if you are using a steamer steam cake for only 5 minutes, and if you are baking cake in the oven bake it for 5-7 minutes not more than that.

 Whenever I bake chocolate lava cake my son is always very excited, he loves to see chocolate coming out from the cake. I always add at least two to three cubes of chocolates, so that nice lava comes out of the chocolates.

For making lava cake you can use an aluminum foil bowl or use a steel bowl or silicon bowl.

Always remember to apply butter to the cake tin, as we are going to flip lava cake it’s important that the bowl is nicely greased with butter.
