  • Preheat oven to 350° F
  • Prepare 8 oz. Ramekins or Other Small Glass Baking Dishes with cooking spray.
  • Mix together all dry ingredients with a fork to remove lumps.
  • In a separate bowl, beat eggs.
  • Add heavy cream and vanilla and whisk to combine.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients together stirring until well-combined and smooth.
  • Divide the batter between the two prepared dishes.
  • Bake in oven on middle rack for 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove and serve immediately.


  • Do not overcook.  Jiggly cake means lots of gooey lava!
  • Run a butter knife around the edge of the cake to loosen from the dish, before tipping the lava cake onto a plate...This may take some practice.
  • This batter can be made and stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours tightly covered with plastic wrap.
