This is the BEST dessert ever! Whenever I make it (which is quite frequently) people are socked at my cooking skills...little do they know!
great recipe for a lava cake. not overly sweet and just chocolatey goodness.
I changed the servings to 2 and it was so easy and tasted soooo good!!!! My husband loved it! This was our Valentine's dessert!
Easy and delicious! I melted the butter & chocolate in the microwave and used heart-shaped ramekins for Valentine's Day. Served with vanilla ice cream. I cooked them just a tad too long at 15 minutes -- they were soft in the middle but not "lava-like." So maybe 13 minutes next time. But there will definitely be a next time! (Oh, and I halved the recipe.)
I made this recipe for my family, they had never tried lava cake before. Oh my goodness, I thought my step daughter was going into a chocolate coma. This is the most decadant desert I have ever ate. I have had this in trendy resturants but I don't remember the filling being as smooth and oh so full of chocolaty goodness. Thanks for posting this recipe. Chef Tomasso
I printed this recipe in early 2008. My apologies for not having reviewed it until now. This has become my go to dessert recipe! Have tried many other lava cake recipes but always come back to this one! Sometimes I add a bit of Vanilla or a bit of Espresso just to mix it up a bit. My favourite way to serve is with whipped cream and fresh raspberries. A good vanilla ice cream is also nice. Thank you for an oft used and much loved recipe!
WOW! Such an easy chocolate lovers dream come true! Love how the warm innards ooze out when the cake shell is broken. Definitely so rich that it needs ice cream to accompany this truly decadent dessert. Thanks for posting!
Yummy! This was the first recipezaar recipe I tried and was a great introduction to the zaar world. We ate way too many.
This cake was great! My son is on a gluten free diet so I just substituted a rice flour/potato starch flour blend for the regular flour. He was so happy!
