The trick here is that there is none and is more so just being patient and sometimes even lucky for the lava cake to come out perfect: completely done on the outside but liquid on the inside so that when you cut it open it combines with the ice cream. There are really only few fast and good desserts such as this.

The original lava cake is a chocolate lava cake, the all time favorite which we actually have a recipe for in case you want to make them. The difference is this lava cake is made with dulce de leche and so the texture is different but the concept is the same.

The dulce de leche used to make this recipe can be both the usual sort of liquid type or a thick dulce de leche, but the important thing is that it is not extremely thick because in the end we want to cut open the lava cake and for the liquid dulce de leche to come out.

The special molds to make these lava cakes are called “ramekins”, which are super cute. There are many sizes. You can choose the size you want as long as it is not as big, because they are suppoused to be individual portions. If you do not have these molds and can’t find them, you can make the lava cakes in a cupcake pan or tray but without using the cupcake liners and making sure you grease the pan for the lava cakes not to stick and to turn out easily once baked.
