    tamarinda's Note:

    I was looking for a lava cake recipe using cocoa powder, rather than prepared chocolate. I modified a recipe from Jan Kruse found at http://www.siliconvalley.com/mld/mercurynews/living/columnists/homeplates/16800969.htm

      My family loves chocolate and I lost my original recipe for lava cake. So I tried this one which also used cocoa. I have to say that this is the most bitter and nasty tasting lava cake I have ever had. I think I'm going to have to tweak this recipe and see if I can make it better so people will actually like it. Thanks for the recipe Iist I usually have good luck oh well will try again
