  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 20 gm Stevia
  • 100g yes you can chocolate orange cake mix

Preparing the mould

  • You will need a ramekin with a 2-3 inch base and a or a cake ring of 4
  • Grease the mould with canola oil spray or butter. Using a
  • non stick mould would be ideal, however if not, line the mould on
  • all sides with parchment paper




  • Preheat your oven to 180-degree Celsius convection oven
  • Melt the butter and dark chocolate together over a double boiler till it is completely smooth

(To make a double boiler)

  • Place a saucepan full of water on the stove. When the water

starts simmering, place your bowl of chocolate and butter

over this making sure the heat is not too high)

  • When the butter and chocolate mixture has cooled down to

room temperature, add your eggs and egg yolks, then whisk

till they're combined.

  • Add your stevia and sift in your orange chocolate mix flour to avoid lumps. Fold this gently with a spatula to keep the batter light and airy.
  • Pour the batter into your moulds and leave in fridge for 30 mins and bake at 180 degree Celsius for close to 10 minutes. Every oven will slightly vary so try what suits your oven
  • When the surface is smooth and looks set the fondant is ready, this would still be wobbly on the centre. That’s the lava we are looking for.
  • Serve straight out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream!
