I must be missing something. I followed these instructions and there was no melted center in the lava cake. It was basically just a brownie. The photo on the box clearly shows that there should be a melting liquid center, and explicitly states as much. So the cook must have gone wrong, if this just ended up being a brownie, right?

Hi Bryce, did you select “Yes” when asked if cooking from frozen? The cook time on Suvie is 4 minutes.

Yes, I did. It added 19 min to the overall time on the next screen, and then when I hit “cook now” it started a timer from 30 min.

It’s doing the same thing for me now. I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out

I got the same thing too Bryce and James. It goes from 4 minutes to 19 minutes when you set cook from frozen to “Yes”. But then it overrides the 19 minutes with 30 minutes for some unknown reason. Guessing software bug?
I made a little walk-through video to show the issue. Not sure if any of the admins or devs might find it useful.

The instructions state to thaw the cakes before cooking, but then select yes for cooking from frozen…is this correct?

Hi Alex, we recommend cooking the Lava Cakes from frozen for best results. We have updated the recipe. Thanks!

We also experience the same as you did no lava in the middle of the cake. But it was a good chocolate brownie! But not for the price!

We just received our Suvie and our first food order. Overall the packaging of the food (pre planned meals) was good. However, the items like the chocolate lava cake came with no cooking instructions for the Suvie… which led me to this blog. Has the 4 minute cooking issued been fixed or should I cook the lava cake in my conventional oven, like the direction on the box indicate?

Nope, doesn’t work!!! I can’t set the time for 4 minutes. The lowest timer I have for baking from frozen is 15 minutes.

Hi Edward, is your software up to date? I just input these settings on my own Suvie and was able to bake for 4 minutes (please note that when you instruct Suvie to cook from frozen it will automatically add 15 minutes to the cook time, so the total time listed on the Suvie will be 19 minutes).
