Recipe Content Team
4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Grease four 6-ounce ramekins with butter and dust them with flour, tapping out any excess. This will ensure easy removal of the cakes once they're done baking.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chopped dark chocolate and unsalted butter. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the chocolate and butter are melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, powdered sugar, all-purpose flour, and vanilla extract until well combined and slightly thickened.
Gradually pour the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, whisking constantly, until fully incorporated and smooth.
Divide the batter evenly among the prepared ramekins, filling them about three-quarters full.
Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
Carefully place the filled ramekins into the air fryer basket, making sure they are spaced apart for even cooking.
Air fry the molten chocolate lava cakes for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are set but the centers are still slightly gooey. Keep a close eye on them, as the cooking time may vary depending on the size and model of your air fryer.
Once done, carefully remove the ramekins from the air fryer using oven mitts or tongs, as they will be hot. Allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving.
To serve, run a knife around the edges of each cake to loosen them from the ramekins, then invert them onto serving plates. Serve the molten chocolate lava cakes immediately, garnished with a dusting of powdered sugar, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or fresh berries, if desired.
These molten chocolate lava cakes are best enjoyed immediately after baking for that perfect gooey center. Be sure not to overbake them in the air fryer, as you want the centers to remain soft and molten. Adjust the cooking time accordingly based on your air fryer model and size of the ramekins used. For an extra indulgent touch, serve with a dollop of whipped cream or a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
