Vanilla Lava Cake /Molten Cake

Hello dear readers, 
For this post I'll share the recipe of Vanilla Lava Cake. Several friends requested for this recipe, so here it is. I'll jot down here the ingredients and method.

I got this recipe from a friend, Ms Arlene. She got the recipe from internet and it was nice of her to share with me the recipe. However, I improvised it a bit due to my needs and comfort. Such as the butter instead of putting it all in one stick, I just added 6 tablespoon. And for the sugar, instead of 1 cup, I only used 4 tablespoon. 

First of all, I should send my thank you to Nadia too, a blogger friend who requested me to give a try to bake this cake. To my surprise it turned out nice and taste so good! My hubby really loves this cake. He can finish 2 vanilla lava cakes in a row..haha!

Ok, let us start now with the ingredients. :D

4 oz of white chocolate (about 110g)
6 tbsp of butter
3 eggs
1 egg yolk
4 tbsp caster sugar (you can put in 2 or 3 tbsp if you want it less sweet)
1 tsp vanilla essence
6 tbsp flour


Pre-heat oven at 180 degree.

Combine white chocolate and butter. Melt them by using 'double boiled' method.

Put in sugar, eggs and yolks. Whisk until it blends well. Add in the vanilla essence as well.

Fold in flour and mix it at low speed until the batter become a bit runny.

Put the batter in greased ramekins or muffin cups. Place the ramekins in oven and bake at 180 degree for 15-18 minutes. You should check them from time to time to prevent over-cooked.

As the cake done, take the ramekins out from oven. Put it upside down on a plate and let it slide out from the ramekin slowly. Extra careful, the cake might easily break along the process. You should see the lava in the middle when you cut the cake in 2. :D

And you can design suit to your imagination. Here's mine, ready to serve!..
Stella's Vanilla Lava Cake.. :P

Ok, that's it for now. Give this a try, you'll never regret. Leave a feedback. I want to hear it. I hope they'll turn out nice too. :D

Happy Baking..
