Vegan egg-less chocolate lava cake

Good day to you all!

Unavailability of snacks and sweets has led me to some serious chocolate cravings. Are you also craving for some warm molten chocolate oozing out of a cake? I have got you covered. Just make sure you have some chocolate and rest consists of basic staples. Happy baking!


  • Flour- 60 gm
  • Icing sugar(powdered sugar)- 90 gm
  • Cocoa powder- 30 gm
  • Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
  • Salt- 1/4 tsp
  • Water- 120 ml
  • Refined oil/ melted butter: 30 ml
  • Chocolate chunks


  • Preheat oven at 180 degrees Centigrade or 356 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease your tin molds and keep them ready. I used silicon molds so I didn’t grease it. You can use ramekins, cupcake molds, tiny oven safe bowls.
  • Keep your chocolate chunk or block ready.
  • In a bowl, sift all the dry ingredients and mix them.
  • Add the water and mix using a whisk or a fork. Add the oil or butter and mix well.
  • Fill up half of your mold with the batter, then place a chunk of chocolate. Pour the batter on top of it but make sure you cover only 2/3 of the mold so that it leaves room for the cake to rise.
  • Bake at 180 degrees Centigrade or 356 degrees Fahrenheit for 6-7 minutes. Alternatively you can skip the preheating and bake it in microwave setting instead of convection for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove the lava cake from the mold and serve it hot. You can also serve it in the mold itself. You can dust some icing sugar, add a scoop of ice- cream or even drizzle some syrup over it. I prefer having it as it is.

Bonus Tips:

  • If you do not have dark chocolate, place a chunk of any chocolate, it would taste a little different but no one can go wrong with some chocolate.
  • While taking out of the oven the top should be firm and cooked but should feel soft.
  • If the cake doesn’t come out of the mold, serve it in the mold.
  • Do not put any metal mold in microwave option. Silicon molds go well with both types of baking.
  • In case you are making smaller portion just convert it to tablespoons. A tablespoon is equivalent to 15 grams.

Do let me know if you bake it in the comments below. Like and share if you liked it:)
