 Storage and Serving Suggestions


Tasting choco lava cake
  1. Lava cake tastes best when it is served hot and fresh straight after baking.
  2. Cake can be refrigerated but needs to be re-heated before serving. After getting cold, the chocolate would solidify and hence would need 30 seconds of heating in Microwave.You can also use a cooker to re-heat. Use the same process as baking for melting the chocolate. The only thing to keep in mind is the short time period. You should only do it for less than a minute.

You can also try making molten lava cake in Oven instead of cooker. This is really awesome and very tasty. I hope you will also make it at home and share your comments. Thank you.

  1. Can I use stainless steel bowl covered with aluminium foil as mould? If yes, am I to grease aluminium foil with butter?


    • Hi Nisha,
      We would not recommend using a stainless steel bowl as it would get too hot and may not bake the cake well.
      It is always better to use an Oven safe bowl for baking.


  2. I tried making it but it became a soft chocolate cake . I used salt and and aluminum plate and used smaller stainless steels bowls(katori). Can you tell me what went wrong.


    • Hi Sakshi,
      Somehow, this comment was missed by us earlier. I know, I am responding to it late, and if you are still there, here is what we fell:
      1. Stainless steel bowls are not good for baking as per our experiments.
      2. You should use Oven safe bowls.
      3. We do not recommend using salt as the base either. We have not tried one and hence can’t really say what could have gone wrong there.


  3. What about tupperware bowls instead of baking pan?

    Whether the base must have holes? Because the sieve which you used is stainless steel. so can I use steel plate as a base?


    • Hi Jujal,

      If and ONLY if the tupperware bowl you want to use, is marked as ‘MICROWAVE AND OVEN SAFE’ should be used for baking in cooker.
      If not, there are HIGH chances that it will melt during the process.

      Also, if it is made with plastic, we would recommend to NOT use it as plastic tends to release chemicals when exposed to high heat and that’s not safe for health.

      On the base questions, it is good if it has holes, as this helps in pushing heat upwards for easy baking. Even if the holes are not there in the utensil you are using, it is okay. It won’t make any difference to the timing in the recipe. Yes, you can use stainless steel plate as the base.


  4. Choco lava in cooker! Awesome recipe.

    Instead of sieve or idli stand as a base, can I use salt? If yes, whether the timing will remain the same? I don’t have baking pan or aluminium utensil, can I use stainless steel bowl? Whether gasket and whistle of the cooker has to be removed?


    • Hi,
      1. We do not recommend using salt as the base.
      2. Stainless steel utensil is not good for baking. It would get too hot and cake would be spoiled.
      3. Yes, cooker whistle has to be removed. It is mentioned in above recipe clearly.

      Let us know if you need more information.


      • Thanks..

  5. In this half cup of choco chips equals how many gram?


  6. your receipe molten lava cake in cooker. Besides using egg which ingredient would I use because I’m vegetarian


    • At this time, we do not have a recipe for Molten lava cake without Egg.
      We would first like to try and then share the tried and tested recipe soon.


  7. i dont have choco chips. can iuse chocolate bar.and how much i have to use for this recipe


    • Yes, you can any chocolate slab instead of Choco chips…
      Use 250 gms of chocolate in this recipe.
      Hope you try and enjoy..
      Thanks for watching.


    • Yes, You can use Chocolate for this recipe. Just break it into as small pieces as you can.


  8. does it work cuz i m scared


    • Don’t be scared. You can watch the video to see what we did. Don’t worry, the cooker won’t explode. The simple reason is that we do not use the cooker weight (whistle) and hence it never holds up the steam inside.

      If steam is not locked inside cooker, it will never explode.

      Does that answer your dilemma?


  9. Any substitute for egg in this cake?
