Vegan Molten Chocolate Lava Cake for Two

  • Author: Liv B
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 2 large servings


Chocolate lava cakes: chewy cake edges, molten fudge center.


  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, divided (see instructions below)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup nondairy milk
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter, melted or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup boiling hot water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper (this is just to catch any spills from the ramekins, for easy clean up.) Grease 2 large ramekins and set aside. The size I use is about 1 1/4 cups volume, and 6 inches in diameter.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup white sugar, flour, 3 tbsp cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt until combined.
  3. Add the nondairy milk, melted butter and vanilla. Stir to combine into a batter. Divide evenly between the ramekins and spread with a spoon so its an even layer.
  4. In a small bowl, add remaining 2 tbsp white sugar, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 2 tbsp brown sugar and stir until combined. Divide between ramekins, sprinkling in an even layer overtop.
  5. Add 1/4 cup of the hot water onto each cake. DO NOT STIR. Place on prepared sheet pan and bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, until top is set.
  6. Remove from the oven and let sit 15 minutes before serving. Serve with strawberries and coconut ice cream!
