White chocolate lava fondant oozes out as you first cut into these gorgeous cakes that are drizzled with a coulis like no other. The best thing? It's a foolproof recipe! Bake this and your mates will be crazily impressed. Top tip... make plenty and store them in the freezer for that impromptu moment.


  • 200 g blackberries
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 100 g salted butter
  • 200 g white chocolate
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 100 g vanilla sugar
  • 1 pinch freshly ground peppercorns
  • 5 eggs

Step 1

Make The Cake Mix

Break the chocolate into a heatproof bowl along with the butter and melt gently in a microwave for 20 seconds at a time, until just melted. Crack the eggs into another bowl and whisk together with the sugar. beat in the chocolate and butter mixture. Fold in the flour.

Step 2

Freeze Mixture In Moulds

Grease the inside of 4 dariole moulds with butter and then dust with flour. Divide the mixture between the moulds, shake to level out then freeze for at least 2 hours, but if they are well covered with clingfilm then up to 3 months is fine.

Step 3

Bake Them

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the frozen desserts on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Make The Sauce

Wash and hull the blackberries, then blend to a sauce with the honey and ground mixed peppercorns.

Step 5

Serve The Beauties

Remove the lava cakes from the oven and leave at room temperature for 2 minutes to rest. Carefully turn out onto a serving plate, top with a little drizzle of the blackberry coulis. Decorate with a few sliced berries and mint leaves and serve immediately. Makes 4



Inspired by Sorted's White Lava Cake but used milk chocolate instead.


What size dariole said were they for the chocolate molten lava cakes, were they 200ml? If you use 150ml would they cook in around 11-12 mins? Thanks


can i use the exact recipe with dark chocolate? but do i chill it or freeze it?


I used dark chocolate instead of white chocolate, and made these for my family for Valentine's day. They were so good.


The text says 2 hours, the video says 4... which one's accurate? (BTW I'm trying the recipe with black chocolate)
