BBQ in Winter and Molten Lava Cakes

We had a beautiful day last week,

where the sun was shining, and the day was warmer.

So, we decided to make use of it by "christening" the "Daddy" BBQ Grill that David got ( as opposed to the "Mummy" BBQ Grill that he got for me )

Oh, and on the baking front, I made Molten Lava Chocolate "mini cakes" - once for us and another time for a friend's birthday. After baking, there wasn't much lava left in the middle as I left it in the oven for too long, but hey, practice makes perfect!

Simple Molten Lava Cake
( makes 2 little lava cakes in the little custard cups/bowls )


  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar/splenda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 squares baking chocolate
  • 1/4 stick of butter ( we use about a slightly heaped tablespoon of margarine )


  • Preheat oven to 425F
  • Melt baking chocolate and butter in microwave about 1 and 1/2 minutes
  • Mix chocolate and butter till chocolate all melted/mixed
  • Add all other ingredients into mixture
  • Pour into custard cups or any other small oven safe bowl ( mixture will rise a little in the oven )
  • ( I sprayed the inside with some Pam so it would be easier to remove the cake )
  • Bake for about 8 - 9 minutes till outer part is firm but leaving gooey "molten lava" in the middle
  • Remove from cup/bowl carefully with a dinner knife
  • Cool for about a minute and then serve with Cool Whip or Ice Cream
  • ENJOY!!!!!!

"This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it."
(Psalm 118:24)
