Product Review: Ready to Bake, Part 3, Chocolate Lava Cake

Ready to Bake Chocolate Lava Cake Product Review

This is the third and final in a series demonstrating and reviewing Ready to Bake’s liquid batter product line. In this post, I bake the chocolate lava cake. In my first two posts, I baked blueberry muffins and brownies.

Ready to Bake Chocolate Lava Cake Liquid Batter Overview

Chocolate lava cake is trending as a out-of-the-ordinary dessert. On the outside, it looks like regular chocolate cake, but when you cut into it, you find a gooey center filling. I don’t know if it is true, but baking legend says the cake was invented out of a cooking disaster — individual cakes were taken out of the oven too soon. The trick to making this dessert is to bake it enough for safety, but not so much that it is still liquid-y in the center.

This Ready to Bake Liquid Batter does most of the work for you because it comes in a convenient pouch, already to pour into your pans and bake. The pouch can keep in your cupboard for up to a year. The Chocolate Lava Cake batter makes about six cakes in individual cake pans and requires no additional ingredients.

Price: $9.99 and is available on

Who is Ready to Bake Chocolate Lava Cake Liquid Batter suitable for?

From my research, the batter for a chocolate lava cake is half the battle. A regular cake mix doesn’t do the dessert quite the right justice. So, if you’re not a baker, are too busy to spend much time in the kitchen, or have limited kitchen resources, this product may be just what you’re looking for to serve a “home-baked” cake with a touch of class.

Overall Thoughts

Even though I botched the results on this pouch, it is my favorite of the three. The initial yummy chocolatiness lingered. It made a darn good cake, sans lava. On top of that, the product was quick and easy to use.

One caveat: I suspect baking it in a pan rather than individual cups probably let to the baking mishap. So, if want to do this product justice, I recommend making sure you have some ramekins on hand.
