Instructions

    Prepare your cake batter, either from scratch or by using a cake mix, following the recipe or package directions.

  2. 2

    Generously butter the insides (bottom and sides) of the ramekins.

  3. 3

    Pour the batter into the cups, leaving about 2.5 cm (1 inch) of space at the top.

  4. 4

    Bake at 218 degrees C (425 degrees F) for about 13 to 14 minutes, until the cakes pull away from the sides of the ramekins.

  5. 5

    Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.

  6. 6

    Run a knife around the edge of the ramekins and remove the cakes by turning them upside down on a serving plate.

  7. 7

    Serve with ice cream if desired.

Tips and warnings

  • Ramekins are great for chocolate lava cakes, also known as molten cakes, which are baked until the sides are firm but the centres are still soft.
  • Ramekins are perfect for baking cakes for a special occasion such as a birthday or Valentine's Day.
