Chocolate-Beet Lava Cakes


  • 85g The Chocolate Bar Dark Chocolate Sticks (70%)
  • 57g unsalted butter
  • 20g all purpose flour
  • 30g icing sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 beetroot



  • Start by roasting the beetroot in the oven set to 200C. Wrap the beetroot in foil with 1 tbsp of oil and roast for 45 minutes, or until tender
  • Slice the beetroot into small chunks and set aside to cool
  • Butter 3 ramekins and dust with cocoa powder to prevent the batter from sticking
  • When the beetroot is somewhat cool, add it to a blender with 1 tbsp of water until a smooth puree forms. Set aside and heat the oven to 180C
  • Chop the chocolate and melt in the microwave with butter in 20 second intervals until smooth
  • Whisk the egg and yolk in a separate bowl until smooth. Add the egg mixture to the chocolate, followed by the flour, sugar and salt. Mix.
  • Once the batter is smooth, whisk in the beetroot puree. Spoon the batter into the ramekins and bake for exactly 12 minutes to ensure a rich and gooey lava centre!
