Chocolate lava cakes are a delicious way to use up leftover chocolate.
Here’s how to make them at home.
First, make a chocolate cupcake batter.
Melt the buttercream in a large bowl over low heat.
Add the cocoa powder, sugar and vanilla extract, and mix until smooth.
Pour the batter into a cake tin, leaving the sides uncovered.
Pour half the batter in and the other half in.
Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden and set.
Use a toothpick to poke holes in the top of the cake to release any remaining chocolate.
Repeat with the other chocolate cupcakes.
