Chocolate lava cakes has always been one of my most favourite cake recipe for various reasons. The most obvious reason is of course the rich gooey warm chocolate. The other reason to love it is that you can make it in no time whatsoever. However, recently I have come up with another reason to love it. You guessed it right!!! Booze!! This recipe has wine infused cherries. Amazing right????

Preparation time 2-3 days for the wine infused cherries and 5 mins for preparing the cake

Baking time 7-8 mins

Serves 1

Ingredients for infusing cherries in alcohol 

Red wine 1/2 cup

Sweetened glazed cherries 3-4

Ingredients for the cake

2 teaspoon flour

2 teaspoon sugar or as per taste

A pinch of salt

1 tablespoon butter

80 grams good quality dark chocolate

1 egg

Preparing the cherries 

For preparing the cherries take a clean and dry mason jar or any other glass jar with a tight lid. Pour the wine and place the cherries in the wine (with a clean dry spoon) without touching the cherries with your hands. Give it a nice mix with the spoon. Cover the rim of the bottle with a clean and fresh wax paper and seal it with the lid. Place it in a dry and warm place and let it sit for 2-3 days. Use the cherries in the lava cake later and drink the red wine adding some more wine of course and its yummy.

Preparing the cake

Preheat oven at 180 C. Melt the chocolate and butter together either in a microwave for 1 minute or by using a double boiler. After the chocolate melts stir the mixture for another minute  to reduce the temperature of the chocolate. Beat an egg and mix it to the chocolate mixture. Its important that the chocolate mixture is warm not hot , otherwise when we add the egg the egg will start to scramble. Now add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Spoon the mixture to a oven proof cup (which has been brushed with vegetable oil or butter) and bake for not more then 7-8 minutes. If you over bake it you will have chocolate cake not chocolate lava cake. Once done take it out of the oven, place a plate or saucer under the cup and serve with the wine infused cherries on top. Sprinkle some caster sugar on top to make it fancy.
