1) Finely chop the dark chocolate.
2) Soak the gelatin sheets in cold water for 5 to 10 minutes. Once soft, lift sheets from the cold water. Squeeze to remove excess water and add to milk and cream.
3) Steam the milk and cream at 80℃ for 4 minutes. Add the mixture into the dark chocolate and melt it completely. Keep it in the refrigerator until set and make the ganache into 4 even-sized balls.
1) Sieve the self-raising flour and cocoa powder three times.
2) Brush the inside mold or ring surface with butter, then add plain flour to the mold and tilt and rotate it so that all the surfaces are coated with flour.
3) Mix the egg white and yolk together. In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and brown sugar and beat together until well mixed. Add the egg mixture gradually and fully combine it.
4) Fold the flour and cocoa power gently into the mixture.
5) Put the batter into a piping bag and pipe the mixture into the prepared mold filling ⅓ mold. Put one ganache in each cake, pressing gently to cover with batter. Steam at 100℃ for 35 minutes. Rest for 2 minutes before unmolding.
Berry Compote: Mix the berry with berry jam and steam at 100℃ for 3 minutes. Place in refrigerator until cold.
Serving: Unmold the lava cake and serve it with berry compote and ice cream. Garnish with mint leaves and hazelnut praline.
Cooking Tips: After the lava cake comes out of the oven, let it sit in the mold for 2 to 3 minutes. When putting the mixture into the mold you can also use single use foil containers. With the large capacity steam oven and its multi-level steaming racks in place, you can steam up to 12 different flavoured lava cakes at the same time such as green tea, coffee and nuts, making it fun and exciting.
2) Compared to traditional ovens, making lava cake in a steam oven keeps the cake soft and moist reducing the chance of over cooking or burning the cake, with an almost 0% chance of failure. When using the Miele puresteam to steam cakes, there is no need to wrap plastic or aluminum foil over the cake making it very convenient. Compared with using traditional over-the-stove steaming, this method reduces excess vapor and prevents the cake from being spoiled by too much water. This allows for heating the cake more consistently for a better result.
