Molten Chocolate Cake (Eggless)
My daughter liked the Dominos Choco Lava Cakes she had on our Mumbai trip. So I thought I'd try to make them at home. My search for the recipe on the web came up with some pretty complicated options...too much work for lazy me. So I came up with this easier method.
Here's how I made them:
1 heaped cup APF
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa pwd
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup chocolate chips
2 - 3 tbsp milk
Sieve all the dry ingredients (APF to salt listed above) together to mix well. Add the vanilla essence, oil and water. Mix well.
Put the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Melt at 20 second intervals, stirring in between, till completely melted. Add the milk into them and stir well to mix.
Line a muffin cup pan with cupcake liners. Spoon 1 tbsp of the cake batter in each mould. Cover with 1 tsp of the melted chocolate. Top with another tbsp of the cake batter.
Bake in a pre-heated 350F oven for 15 mins.
Serve warm (reheat in microwave if required) with vanilla ice-cream for a decadent dessert.
This made 8 muffin size cupcakes.
