Making the Lava Cake

  • Pre-heat your oven to 400°F.
  • Spray or coat your six 4-ounce ramekins or custard cups with vegetable oil.
  • Follow the instructions on the Chocolate Cake Mix, beating the final stage for 3 minutes until the batter is fluffy.
  • Pour batter into the ramkins or custard cups. Place one refrigerated chocolate ball in the middle of each container, making sure to push it under surface of the cake batter.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until cake is firm to the touch. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes.
  • Run a sharp knife blade around the inside the rim of each container to free your Lava Cakes.
  • Place a serving plate over the top of each Lava Cake. Invert the plate and Lava Cake, releasing the cake onto the plate.
  • Garnish each Lava Cake with whipping cream and raspberries while warm.
