Total time: 30 minutes 

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup Hill St Chocolate Base
  • 110g butter + extra for brushing ramekins
  • 170g milk chocolate or 50% dark chocolate
  • 2 egg 
  • 2 egg yolk
  • 4 tbsp milk
Peanut butter filling: 
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened (room temperature)
  • 4 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1.5 tbsp icing sugar
  • Extra chocolate for the middle


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees fan bake.
  • Brush ramekins with butter and dust with a Hill St Chocolate mix.
  • Tap out excess into bowl.
Make the peanut butter filling:
  • Mix peanut butter with softened butter and icing sugar. It shouldn’t be too runny. If it is, just pop it in the fridge. Set aside. 

Make the lava cake batter:

  • Melt chocolate with butter in microwave (short bursts) or stove top, until just melted.
  • Beat eggs with an electric beater until lighter in colour and fluffy. Fold in half a cup of Hill St Chocolate Base, milk, melted butter and chocolate until it comes together.
  • Spoon chocolate mix into base of ramekins, until 1/3 of the way.
  • Spoon peanut butter mixture into the middle along with a square of chocolate and top with another layer of chocolate mix until 2/3’s full.
  • Bake for 12-15mins, should be slightly cracked on the top and still jiggle a little in the middle.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes before turning out. 
  • Tip: run a sharp knife around the edge before turning out.

Serve with cream or ice cream.
