Orange Chocolate Lava Cake


Orange Chocolate Lava Cakes
Super terrific twist on chocolate molten cakes.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • ¾ cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted margarine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 whole egg, plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon potato starch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Melt the chocolate, margarine and oil in a medium bowl in the microwave until completely melted, about 1 minute. Whisk the mixture until smooth. Stir in the orange zest and cool slightly.
  3. Whisk the sugar, egg and yolk until pale in a medium bowl. Whisk in the melted chocolate mixture. Stir in the potato starch and vanilla until smooth. Divide the batter among four prepared muffin tins. Bake the cakes until just barely dry on top (they will be soft in the middle), about 12 minutes. Remove the cakes from the oven and cool, about 5 minutes.
  4. Gently flip the cakes onto a plate. Sprinkle the cakes with sea salt and top with the orange supremes. Drizzle with a bit of oil.
