Molten Chocolate  Lava Cake


1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

3 large eggs, at room temperature

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract Topping: 

1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 

4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 

2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar 

4 tablespoons (1/4 stick) melted butter 


In a large bowl using an electric mixer beat the oil and granulated sugar together until well combined. Beat in the eggs one at a time and add the vanilla. 

Add cocoa powder in batches to speed it up if needed. Mix for about 3-4 minutes, until it's well combined. 

Pour into the springform pan. Wrap with foil and place in a large roasting pan. Add hot water to the roasting pan so that it comes about halfway up the side of the springform pan.  

Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before removing from the pan and serving with whipped cream or ice cream or both!
