Molten chocolate cake or molten lava cake is a popular dessert that is usually made with butter , sugar , eggs and chocolate . I tried to make the eggless version of the chocolate lava cake from here and end up with this gooey , rich and chocolaty cake. Since I don't have ramekins , I made the cake in normal cake tin but I thought it would be more appealing if would have done in ramekins. Fresh raspberries, a drizzling of raspberry or chocolate sauce, and dustings icing sugar may be added to enhance flavor, or a sprig of mint may look more appealing as well. For a more intense chocolate taste, you may also add a tablespoon of strong coffee . So let's start the recipe . Yum 


Dry ingredients
1 cup cake flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
A pinch of salt

1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup yoghurt , beaten
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon icing sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 180 degree and grease and dust a 8" cake pan or 5-6 small ramekins.
Sift the dry ingredients in a bowl . Whisk together brown sugar and butter in another bowl till frothy.
Add beaten yoghurt in the butter mixture , beat it again .
Now slowly incorporate flours in two batches alternatively adding milk with the flour.

Pour half of the the batter in the cake tin or ramekins , top it up with a layer of chocolate chips and pour the remaining batter over the chocolate chips.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes if using the cake tin or for 12to 15 minutes if using ramekins.

Cool the cakes on wire rack and dust with icing sugar before serving . You may add some cherries or strawberries too.

Serve -6. Baking time -30 minutes

Note: I used the cake tin since Don't have ramekins but you must try this cake in ramekins for better results.
