  8. Fill up two ramekins halfway with chocolate batter.
  9. Add 1 teaspoon of nutella into each ramekin, right in the center. (be careful not to add too much nutella or the cake might have a lava explosion in the oven)
  10. Top each ramekin with the remaining chocolate mixture.
  11. Place ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes in the oven. (the cake should spring back a little when you touch it.
  12. In the mean time add raspberries and champagne to a small bowl, using a fork, mash the raspberries up and let sit for 5 minutes to let the champagne soak in.
  13. Remove chocolate lava cakes from the oven, using a butter knife, gently go around the outside edge then gently flip the lava cake out of the ramekin onto a plate.
  14. Serve with muddled champagne raspberries on top!

    This recipe looks delicious! Unfortunately I don’t have any ramekins, can I use a cupcake pan instead? How long would baking time differ?
