6 Easy Steps for No-Bake Chocolate Molten Lava Cake

No-bake Chocolate Molten Lava Cake is a rich, moist chocolate cake that comes with its own hot fudge sauce or we call it molten lava. Just cut it open, and enjoy the molten treasure inside. For me, dark chocolate cake with a molten fudge center is –heaven.

 WHAT YOU NEED:

1/2 cup chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
3 tbsps all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Strawberries (Optional)

Step in making No-Bake Chocolate Molten Lava Cake
HOW TO:

1.In a double boiler or saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate together. Add the sugar then continue mixing bowl until well-combined. Remove from heat. Set aside for 2 mins.

2.Mix in the rest of the ingredients until no lumps remain.

3. Transfer to your greased molds. By the way, this cake won't double in size like chocolate cake so you might want to pour enough depending on your preferred height.

4. Steam for around 15-20 minutes, or until the tops are just set but the cakes still jiggle slightly when you shake them.

5. You know it is done when the top is cooked and the sides are almost separating from the mold. Remove from heat then rest for 2 minutes before unmolding.

6. Enjoy eating your chocolate molten lava cake. :) i lava it! <3

TIPS: 

Serve immediately. Garnish with whatever your valentine loves most: whipped cream, ice cream, chocolate syrup, berries, or just some simple powdered sugar.

Philippines: Compressive Strength and Economic Viability of Roller-Compacted Concrete Pavement

Roller Compacted Concrete

Pavement industry is one of the areas where sustainability must be practiced, maintaining a balance in the economic viability and the environmental and social obligations of a particular pavement project. Manufacturing portland cement is a very intensive process and emits a significant amount of CO2 in the environment. But recently, advances in the technology and cement production processes have greatly decreased these impacts. Furthermore, some modern concrete for pavements uses less portland cement per cubic unit compared to the past cement ratio of the same volume, and thus lowering the carbon footprints discharged to the environment. 

Roller-Compacted Concrete (RCC) is a new engineering material having the same basic ingredients as the conventional concrete but of different mix proportions. RCC is constructed without forms, dowels, or reinforcing steel bars and of lesser water-cement ratio compared to conventional concrete.

Roller-Compacted Concrete technology is yet to be discovered in the Philippines, but in other countries especially in North America and Canada, RCC pavements have been making history for the past 30 years. RCC technology has provided both the private and government sectors their need for access roads, parking lots, intermodal shipping yards, ports, and loading docks, truck or freight terminals, bulk commodity storage, and distribution centers, and many other typical applications (Harrington, Abdo, Adaska & Hazaree, 2010). 

Savings associated with RCC over conventional concrete are primarily due to reduced cement content, reduced forming and placement costs, and reduced construction times. Moreover, RCC needs no forms or finishing, and there are no dowels, tie rods, or steel reinforcement (Harrington, Abdo, Adaska & Hazaree, 2010). 

Some of the specific advantages of RCC from a sustainability viewpoint include low initial cost and rapid construction compared to both conventionally designed concrete pavements of similar structural capacity, low lifecycle economic costs. It has the ability to integrate variable quantity of recycled and industrial byproduct material (RIBM) into the mix, and high surface reflectivity. Due to its lower water-cement ratio, the carbon footprint is reduced (Dam et al., 2011).

By using industrial residuals like fly ash as a partial substitute for cement, this study reduced the use of non-renewable resources and minimized the impact of CO2 to the environment. With these characteristics of RCC, this study can be a significant aid in the Philippine economy and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) of the Philippine Government and private sectors in providing the country a more sustainable and cost effective pavement. In the Philippines, this research will be a benchmark in exploring the promising technology and advantages of roller compacted concrete pavement and in determining its applicability for local use.
