    Default Domino's Chocolate Lava Cakes

    I just had these tonight and really like the taste of them. They taste a little different than other lava cakes I have had and I have seen a lot of the recipes for them. Does anyone have the recipe for these?

    Or do you know if they are a premade item sent to Domino's or a different company's? Maybe you know someone who works there and maybe they could tell us? Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to CK Angy. Sorry, I couldn't find Domino's recipe but found this one that sounds wonderful:

    Chocolate Lava Cake

    6 oz. Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate (or use your favorite 70% dark chocolate bar)
    6 oz. Butter (diced, room temperature)
    3 Eggs
    1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
    1/3 cup Flour
    Butter for Ramekins

    Preheat oven to 350°F
    1. Melt chocolate on low flame in a bain-marie (double boiler). When melted, take of flame, and…
    2. Stir in diced butter, until it melts.
    3. In another bowl, beat eggs and sugar, until it starts to whiten.
    4. Stir in melted chocolate and then the flour.
    5. Butter 4 individual ramekins, and pour in chocolate batter.
    6. Cook for about 10 minutes.
    7. Tip ramekins upside down onto dessert plates and serve.

    Tips:

    You can definitely prepare your chocolate lave cake recipe ahead of time, and then bake 10 minutes before serving. I always do it this way!

    In terms of buttering the ramekins: butter the bottoms first, and then butter the sides, wiping from the bottom up to the top. It helps the chocolate to rise even more.

    In terms of baking time… well, it depends on how runny you want it! I like it with a super-liquid-oozing center -- so do my guests! For this, you want the top to be cooked through, but the center to be liquid. You can check with a toothpick after 10 minutes of baking.
    If you don't like liquid-center chocolate desserts, just cook for a little longer, and you will have an incredibly moist chocolate cake. So, either way, you can't go wrong!

    Serving Ideas:

    You can, if you want, serve your chocolate lava cake recipe with a Crème Anglaise (English Cream) or a Coulis aux Framboises (Raspberry Sauce). Personally, I always serve it as is (no sauce). And honestly, everyone FALLS IN LOVE with this dessert!!! How could they not?!!!

    Hi, I have had Lava cakes before. What makes these so special and different? Can you describe it? Not had these yet. I couldn't find a recipe for them either.

    Thanks.

    They just seem to have a different taste than other lava cakes I have tried. They are also good when at room temperature...not too runny.

    I think it depends how long you bake them how runny they are. Notice, this recipe says "If you don't like liquid-center chocolate desserts, just cook for a little longer, and you will have an incredibly moist chocolate cake".

    Also, use a REALLY good chocolate for the inside - Ghirardelli is a good choice.

    Personally, I'd plate them onto a small pool of raspberry coulis (basically just sweetened raspberries cooked lightly then strained). Chocolate & raspberry is made to go together. Or even just throw a few fresh raspberries on top for the beautiful colour

    I don't think anyone has the recipe for these, they only came out relatively recently. I have made these before, and they are quite good.

    I will tell you that these lava cakes are the best that I have ever had, hands down!
    Nothing like hot melted, oozing chocolate coming out of the center and the cake is that of a fudge brownie.
    If you wanted to make one yourself I would go with a brownie mix (recipe) instead of a cake mix.
    I wish I could get the recipe myself just so I could make them at home instead of paying $3.99 plus tax for 2 little cakes.


    I doubt if your local Dominos Pizza store is going to have the recipe. They most likely have the dough already prepared and the Dominos employees just put it in a pan and run it through the pizza oven. Chances of getting the actual lava cake recipe is probably slim to none.

    We do contract work with Dominos, and tried these while working at their main offices, and yes, they are F-ing awesome. I do know that they come pre-made in cases, and they just take them out and run them through the pizza oven. They are even good after a while, if you reheat them on a cookie sheet. I also do know, that the recipes online are NOTHING like theirs. People online just make a cake and undercook it, anyone can do that, but who wants to with Raw Egg and such in it? Gross. Theirs are made with a large piece of a fudge type chocolate, and the cakes are already cooked somehow, so when reheated, the frozen fudge melts into that thick yummy chocolatey goodness!
