It’s been too long since we have let you in on the secrets of one of our dessert recipes, don’t you think? Well…we snuck into the Fig Tree’s kitchen and batted our eyelashes at our pastry chefs. They gave us a real treat: the S’mores Oreo Chocolate Lava Cake. Well, go on, then! Will you recreate this magic in your kitchen? (PS: the best part about these is that they can be made ahead of time, and popped out to wow your guests when you need them!)
S’mores Oreo Chocolate Lava Cake
Makes 9 X 85ml ramekins
* 250g good quality dark chocolate
* 250g butter
* 5 whole eggs
* 5 egg yolks
* 125g white sugar
* 70g cake flour
If you’ve had this dessert at the Fig Tree, you would know that we serve it with a toasted marshmallow (hence the “s’more” in the name!) If you do not have a blowtorch, then you can pop your marshmallows in the oven and broil them until the tops ooze and gooey. YUM.
Add a dollop (or, a really big scoop) of creamy vanilla ice-cream with some crushed Oreo biscuits and you’re good to go. The ice-cream bounces deliciously off the hot, gooey centre of the lava cake.
Let us know if you try it at home!
