If I ever had to pick a biscuit that I could eat for the rest of my life, it would be Oreos! Aren’t they the best? Creamy goodness sandwiched between 2 chocolate biscuits. Ah! This makes me happy. So what better than taking my favourite biscuits and converting it into a dessert? This 4 ingredient chocolava cake recipe is super easy to make and super delicious to devour. Trust me you will not stop at just one bite. Traditionally chocolava cake , also known as molten chocolate cakes, are warm individual-size chocolate cakes with oozing chocolate centres. Most recipes will simply have you undercooking a chocolate cake batter, so the outside is set like cake but the inside is raw batter that pours out like lava when you cut into it.
INGREDIENTS USED IN 4 INGREDIENT CHOCOLAVA CAKE.
As this recipe is flourless oreos are the most impotant ingredient of this recipe.You can use any of the flavours you find at the store. However plain or chocolate will result in the best tasting cakes. But go wild, if that’s what you fancy!
To give my oreos a batter like consistency I have used hot milk. This will melt the oreos and the result will be a smooth and silky chocolatey batter! You can use any milk either tonned or full cream. You can also use almond milk or soy milk which ever you like.
As this recipe is flourless and eggless I have added baking soda to my 4 ingredient chocolava cake to give it a cakey texture which is too die for. It also helps with giving the cake a nice structure and height.
For an ooey gooey chocolately centre I have added few cubes of chocolate. The lava oozing out of the cake is honestly the best part! Warm chocolate paired with some ice cream legit feels like heaven on plate.
TIPS AND TRICKS FOR MAKING THIS 4 INGREDIENT CHOCOLAVA CAKE
Make sure that your milk is piping hot otherwise your oreo biscuits wont melt off completely and you’ll end up with a lumpy batter.
You can also crush your biscuits before adding the milk. In this case the milk can still be cold or warm.
Place the chocolate cubes carefully in the centre and covered with batter otherwise chocolate can burn.
