1. Place the dark chocolate and unsalted butter together in a bowl and melt it over a saucepan of simmering water. In another bowl, mix the cocoa powder, caster sugar and flour together.
  2. Gradually whisk in the cocoa powder mixture to the chocolate mixture. Add in the eggs and mix thoroughly.
  3. Lightly grease and flour an aluminium cup. Pour in the chocolate fondant mixture and chill in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.
  4. Preheat the microwave oven by pressing OVEN, set temperature to 190°C, and then press START. Bake the chocolate fondant for 7 minutes in the preheated microwave oven. Once the fondant is done, carefully remove from the aluminium cup and decorate with fresh raspberries and a dusting of icing sugar.ChocolateLavaCake_s4


Tips:  Instead of an aluminium cup, you may also use a ramekin or a small round dish (lightly greased with cooking spray) to bake your Chocolate Lava Cake.
