Lemon lave cakes are amazing. Sorry I just have to get that out there from the off, everyone thinks of lava cakes being those naughty chocolate ones – which do not get me wrong, are incredible too… but this lemon and white chocolate zesty cake is super delicious and also very easy!
First pre-heat your oven to 400f or equivalent (see temp conversion chart)… and lightly grease your ramekin dishes with butter to make getting them out easier.
In a microwave melt the white chocolate and butter on 15 second bursts stirring in between until melted and creamy, this can take about 45 seconds. Pour this mixture into a large mixing bowl.
Add in all the other ingredients to the bowl…. so the flour, zest of a lemon, curd, icing sugar, extract and the eggs and beat really well together with a whisk until nice and smooth. Try and get all the lumps out!
Pour the mixture evenly into ramekins, this makes enough for 2/3, they do not rise much at all. Bake in the oven on a baking tray until they just start to turn light brown on the sides and form a skin. Remove from the oven, let cool for 5 mins or so and tip out onto a serving board. Dust on icing sugar and extra lemon zest too to finish before gobbling up!
Super simple, super delicious lemon lave cake – give it a go!
