They’re quick and easy to make, and only require a few simple ingredients you probably already have at home. These really are the ultimate individual chocolate desserts!
Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cakes. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- White chocolate: High quality white chocolate that you enjoy eating on its own. I love and recommend Lindt and Callebaut.
- Unsalted butter
- Large eggs: You’ll want 2 eggs, plus 2 egg yolks.
- Vanilla extract
- Icing/powdered sugar
- Plain/all-purpose flour
How to make White Chocolate Lava Cakes
To make these cakes, simply add the white chocolate and butter to a large microwave-safe bowl and heat in 20 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth.
Add the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla extract, and whisk until combined. Add the icing sugar and flour, and whisk until smooth and combined.
Divide the mixture between four greased 4-oz ramekins. Bake for 12 – 14 minutes, or until the sides of the cakes are firm, and the centres are still soft and gooey.
Once baked, carefully run a knife around the edges of each cake, then turn them out onto serving plates and serve warm.
If desired, serve with a scoop of ice cream.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
Tools you’ll need

- Mixing bowls
- 4-oz ramekins
- Baking tray: To place the ramekins on.
- Kitchen scales: I always recommend weighing out your ingredients for complete accuracy. Sometimes using cups can be a little off, especially when it comes to ingredients like flour.
