Tuesday Treat: White Chocolate Molten Lava Cake

About 2 months ago I posted about finding a great recipe for Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes. It is a delicious treat, and I LOVE it! I also wanted to try a white chocolate molten lava cake, and let me say - DELICIOUS. It is pretty much the same as the original - except I use white chocolate squares and reduce the amount of sugar. Turned out beautifully!
This was the dessert I made for our late Valentine's Day dinner. A perfect ending to the meal!
White Chocolate Molten Lava Cake
In a medium bowl combine Four White Chocolate Baking Squares (4 ounces) and ½ cups Butter. Melt in microwave for 1 minute.
Mix until smooth.
Whisk in ½ cup Powdered Sugar. It may not look so pretty after it is all mixed in, but after you add the eggs it will be great.
Add 2 Eggs and 2 Egg Yolks. Beat until smooth.
Add 6 Tablespoons Flour, stir until just combined.
Pour into 4 greased baking dishes (about 1/2 cup per dish). I used Ramekins, but you can use custard dishes.
Bake at 400 Degrees for 13 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest 1 minute.
Run a knife around the edges to loosen. Turn over onto plate. Once the cake has dropped, remove baking dish.
Serve immediately.
If desired serve with a raspberry sauce. (For a basic raspberry sauce bring 1 lb of frozen raspberries to a simmer, add 1 Tbsp honey. If desired either strain seeds out or use a blender, or serve with seeds)


  1. Adorable food blog! My fav chocolate dessert would have to be chocolate pudding pie. Easy and delicious.

  2. Oh man. What IS my favourite chocolate dessert? Um, all of them?

    A really good brownie can't be beat, I guess, but I'm also a ridiculous sucker for peanut m&ms.

  3. Chocolate dessert...man, I think I'd rather take a math test than this one! Hmmm. Well, it's not my only favorite, but on my birthday, I do love a good German Chocolate Cake.

  4. Do I have to choose one? Brownies are good.

  5. I like the raspberry sauce idea.. white chocolate is too sweet for me though. My favorite chocolate dessert is simple but rich brownies or cake.
