Begin to pour the pumpkin cream over the white chocolate chips.

If you want a stronger pumpkin flavor, feel free to add a spoonful or two of pumpkin puree pulp left over from straining.

Give this a good mix until the chocolate chips are melted.

Give this a quick mix before placing it in the freezer for 3-4 hours, or until it’s completely frozen.

When the filling is almost frozen, begin making the lava cake batter by combing 2 whole eggs, 2 egg yolks, and 1/3 cup sugar in a large mixing bowl.

Mix for 5 minutes or until it’s fluffy and pale.

Add in 1/2 cup melted dark chocolate (I microwaved mine for about 2 minutes at half power).

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-5-26-05-pm

Next add 3 tbsp all purpose flour and a pinch of salt.

Next up, butter up a few ramekins…

…and coat in sugar to prevent the cake from sticking to the dish.

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-5-29-15-pm

Transfer the molten lava cake batter to a piping bag and fill the ramekins about halfway up the sides.

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-5-29-44-pmTake a small scoop of the frozen pumpkin spice filling and place in into the center of the batter.

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-5-30-11-pm

Top with a bit more cake batter and pop these in a 375ºF oven for 10-15 minutes.

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-5-30-54-pm

The lower end of the spectrum will result in more of a molten cake and the higher end a firmer, fully bake cake. It’s all about preference!

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-5-31-33-pm

Once the cakes are finished baking take them out of the oven and let them cool for 3-4 minutes.

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-5-32-00-pm

Flip them over and out of the ramekin or eat them straight from the dish. Either way, dig in and ENJOY!
