Bradley Smoked Chocolate Lava Cake


110g dark Chocolate, chopped

110g Butter, cubed (keep some extra butter for greasing)

1 Cup Icing Sugar

2 Egg whites

4 Egg yolks

1 Tsp Vanilla extract

A pinch to ½ tsp Cayenne Pepper (optional, if you want to add a little spice to your treat!)

¼ Cup and 1 Tbsp Flour

Bradley Flavour Bisquettes – Premium Chili Cumin, or Maple 


  1. Prepare your Bradley Smoker for cold-smoking (using the Bradley Cold Smoke Adapter) using Premium Chili Cumin or Maple Flavour Bisquettes.
  2. Cold smoke the dark chocolate on a dish for an hour. 
  3. Preheat your oven to 200C.
  4. Remove the chocolate from the Bradley Smoker and place in a double boiler with butter. Heat on medium heat while stirring until melted and combined.
  5. Remove from heat and add sugar then egg whites and yolks, stir well.
  6. Mix in vanilla and cayenne pepper (if using).
  7. Stir in flour.
  8. Divide mixture among four ramekins which have been well greased with butter.
  9. Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes or until the centre of the cakes are soft and jelly-like and the edges firm.
  10. Let cool for a minute or two, then run a knife around the edge of the cakes to loosen any edges.
  11. Place a plate on top of one ramekin and invert. Remove the ramekin and ta-da! There is your lava cake.
  12. Serve immediately with your favourite accompaniments such as fresh fruit, whipped cream, ice cream, berry sauce, caramel sauce, or chocolate sauce. We recommend Cherry Compote!
