You don't want a beautifully baked lava cake, only to realise that you are unable to remove it from its ramekin. Grease your ramekins well and it will be a breeze for you to get your lava cake out. Just run a sharp knife along the sides and pop it out!
Let It Cool, But Just For A Bit
Although you’re supposed to serve lava cakes warm, allowing the cake to cool for a minute or two before you remove it from the ramekins will help the cake set a little and prevent it from breaking when you remove them. Removing the cakes immediately may cause your cake to collapse into a mush.
Your lava cake will only taste as good as the ingredients you use. So, if you want your cake to be absolutely mind-blowing, grab quality ingredients. Not only will the ingredients enhance the taste, it will also improve the texture of the cake.
