Recipe by DoubleAs Mom

There are a few molten lava cake recipes out there, but in my (and my husband's) opinion, this one is the best. It is terribly easy and I often make these on a weeknight as a special treat for my family. I originally got the recipe from watching Paula Deen but made a bit of a change to suit our family's tastebuds.
