Molten Chocolate Whiskey Cake

Molten Chocolate Whiskey Cake - Posted by Hammerstone's WhiskeyDisks™ makers of the world's best whiskey stones.

This may just be the best dessert you’ll ever taste. It’s a chocolaty, boozy molten cake that is simply magical. Hands down, the best recipe for molten cake you’ll ever come across. The depth of flavors are staggering: dark chocolate, smokey sweet whiskey, warm vanilla, a zing of pepper and candy-like hints of orange zest. Don’t let the fact that there’s cayenne pepper in the mix scare you away; it’s not there for heat,  just to add a slight warmth.

And don’t forget to save a tipple of whiskey to accompany this delicious gooey dessert. We suggest serving it straight with a slight chill, using one of our unique handcrafted whiskey stones.

Molten Chocolate Whiskey Cake


  • 8 oz chocolate baking bar, 60% bittersweet
  • 1 cup butter, unsalted
  • 3/4 tsp iodized salt
  • 3 tbsp whiskey
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp  fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp orange zest
  • 4 eggs plus 2 yolks
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large microwave safe bowl, microwave butter and chocolate for 1 minute or until melted – being careful not to burn the chocolate. Then whisk in the salt, whiskey, vanilla, powdered sugar, ginger, cayenne, pepper, and orange zest. Whisk in eggs and yolks, one at a time. Whisk in flour just until combined. Divide batter into 8 greased ramekins. Place on baking sheet.  Bake for 13 minutes or until the sides are set. The middle will have a slight sag to it, but don’t worry that’s the molten filling. Remove from the oven and let stand for 60 seconds. Loosen edges with a knife and invert onto dessert plates.
