How To Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Lava Cakes

Serve a luscious dessert with these chocolate lava cakes that come with a rich peanut butter center. Bake a batch in 30 minutes!

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 12 minutes
Total: 27 minutes



  • 6ozhigh quality semi sweet chocolate,such as Ghirardelli or Lindt
  • ½cupunsalted butter,(1 stick)
  • ¼cupall purpose flour,spoon & leveled
  • ½cupconfectioners’ sugar
  • tspsalt
  • 2large eggs
  • 2large egg yolks
  • 8tspcreamy peanut butter,about 2 tsp per cake

For Optional For Serving:

  • ice cream,melted peanut butter and/or chocolate syrup for drizzling


  1. Spray each ramekin with nonstick cooking spray and dust with cocoa powder. This ensures the cakes will seamlessly come out of the ramekins when inverted onto a plate.

  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  3. Coarsely chop the chocolate. Place butter into a medium heat-proof bowl, then add chopped chocolate on top.

  4. Microwave on high in 10-second increments, stirring after each until completely smooth. Set aside.

  5. Whisk the flour, confectioners’ sugar, and salt together in a small bowl. Whisk the eggs and egg yolks together until combined in another small bowl.

  6. Pour the flour mixture and eggs into the bowl of chocolate. Slowly stir everything together using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. If there are any lumps, gently use a whisk to rid them. The batter will be slightly thick.

  7. Spoon the chocolate batter evenly into each prepared ramekin. Top with peanut butter and use a spoon to slightly press it down into the batter. Some may still be exposed.

  8. Place ramekins onto a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 13 minutes until the sides appear solid and firm. The top may still look slightly soft.

  9. Allow to cool for 1 minute, then cover each with an inverted plate and turn over. Use an oven mitt because those ramekins are hot! The cakes should release easily from the ramekin.

  10. Top with ice cream and melted peanut butter and/or chocolate syrup for serving, if desired. Serve immediately.
