Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

Its Christmas. This is tat time of the year when you can hog on cakes, pastries, muffins and everything that is rich in calories without regretting a single bite.
Whenever I order a Pizza from Dominos, I always order this sinful indulgence of melted chocolate, wondering as to how it is made. After searching a lot on google, and watching Masterchef I came up with this recipe slight changes of mine. I hope you all will enjoy making this on this Christmas.

1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup Melted Chocolate
1Cup Maida
1tsp Baking Powder
1tsp Soda-bicarbonate
3/4 cup Butter
3/4 cup Castor Sugar
3tbsp Cocoa Powder
Few drops of Vanilla Essence
3/4 cup Curd
1 cup Milk
Few Cherries for topping

  •  Pre-heat the oven at 180degree Celsius for 10 minutes.
  • Sift together Maida + Baking powder + Soda bi-carbonate + Cocoa Powder. Keep it aside.
  • Melt chocolate on a double boiler. Keep it aside.
  • In a bowl, take butter + sugar.
  • Mix well until creamy.
  • Then add in curd.
  • Mix well.
  • Then add in the melted chocolate.
  • Keep stirring until the mixture is creamy and soft and mixed well.
  • After this gradually fold in maida mixture.
  • Keep adding milk at the same time.
  • Dont mix too fast as the cake wont rise much.
  • Now line the muffin moulds with butter.

  • Dust some maida.
  • Fill in 1/4 of muffin mould. Put 1tbsp of chocolate chips in them
  • Cover this with another tbsp of cake mixture.
  • Muffin mould should not be filled completely till top. around 1 inch space should be left.
  • This is done to give enough space for the cake to rise.
  • Bake till 15 minutes in the oven.
  • Demould.
  • Top it with cherries.
  • Serve hot.
