I’m late due to times conflicting and technical difficulties, SORRY.
But, here it is, the recipe worth the wait.
Chocolate Lava Goo Cake. (Makes about 3 dozen cupcakes)
Preheat oven to 350°F
What you will need:
- 4 cups of Flour
- 1 cup of cocao
- 3 Tablespoons of Baking Powder
- 1 ½ cups of Sugar
- 1 cups Hershey’s Syrup
- 3 cups of Milk
- 3 egg WHITES (beaten vigorously to a frothy texture)
- 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
For “Lava goo”
- 2 Packs Jell-O Chocolate Fudge pudding mix (Prepared as directed on box)
Mix dry ingredients first, then add liquids and egg whites. Beat until smooth.
Fill Cake pan 1/2 full (I like to use cupcake pans so individuals get their own little cake).
Add dollop of pudding mix into the center of the cake(s).
Drizzle batter just to cover the top of the pudding mix.
Bake 25-30 minutes (or until done).
When done, the lava cakes should have baked holes on the tops. Next we’ll prepare a chocolate buttercream icing to add to the holes for additional chocolateness 😉
Chocolate buttercream icing:
- 3 tablespoons of milk,
- 3 tablespoons of cocoa,
- 1/2 cup Hershey’s syrup,
- ¼ stick of butter and
- one cup of powdered sugar and
beat vigorously. It will be soupy. Continue adding powdered sugar until firm. If needed, add more cocoa to taste.
When cakes are cooled, but still warm, add icing to center. It will melt and add a “lava” liquid inside the cake.
