Attention all chocolate and peanut butter lovers. This one is for you! The ooey gooey goodness of both the worlds!  Lately I am on a chocolate and peanut butter spree. 

 I totally agree, and this isn’t the first time I’ve paired those ingredients – for instance, check out my Creamy Peanut Butter and Nutella Melting Moments.

I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend.. I had a great one too.. So this weekend I made chocolate lava cake twice; once for my guest and the second time for me only.. You wont believe I spent my Saturday watching movies and just gorging on this lusciously gorgeous chocolatey-peanut buttery cake with vanilla ice cream. Ahhh! Bliss…. πŸ™‚

I had three of these chocolatey babies (I know, I know.. not healthy at all, but I really couldn’t stop at one :p ) and poor hubby could just manage to get one. :p

Molten lava cake is one of my ultimate comfort dessert. The best part is it is not time consuming at all and can be whipped up within half an hour. πŸ™‚

I stuffed the cake with crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy peanut butter to add a bit of crunchy texture and then sprinkled Fleur de Sel salt to contrast with the sweetness of the chocolate. Yum Yum Yummmm!!

But if you are more of a purist, you can replace the peanut butter with a large block of chocolate.

  2. Generously butter 4 pudding moulds and coat the inside with cocoa powder.

  4. Mix peanut butter with unsalted butter and 1 tablespoon of icing sugar and keep aside.
  5. Now in a large bowl place the eggs, yolks and sugar and a pinch of salt and whisk until the mixture is pale and thick around 2-3 minutes.
  6. With a spatula fold in the chocolate mixture and the vanilla and mix until no streaks remain.
  7. Fold in the flour and mix until smooth.
  8. Spoon 2/3 of the batter into the prepared mould. Then spoon a large dollops of peanut butter mixture into each cup then pour the remaining chocolate batter evenly into each cup.
  9. Place the cups on a tray and bake for 12-14 minutes until tops appear dry but the centres are still slightly jiggly. Transfer the moulds to a rack and let cool for 3-5 minutes or until warm enough to handle and turn out onto a plate for serving and dust generously with cocoa powder and fleur de sel.

    Wow, I’m drooling over this lava cake! Anytime I order dessert at a restaurant (which is hardly ever), I always make a beeline for the lava cakes, they’re my absolute favorite! I love that you added peanut butter in the middle. Such a fabulous idea!

    Oh my chocolate heaven! This combo sounds delightful! I love lava cakes and this recipe I for sure have to try. I’ve done quiet often lava cakes, however I never thought about putting cacao powder into the pudding molds. This is fantastic! I do the same with flour when I bake ring cakes, to get them out easily.. but never thought of trying it with lava cakes. Thank you for that tip!
