There were times when Molten Lava Cakes was such a popular desserts. Like, all of a sudden, this dessert popped up in a lot of restaurant or cafe menu. People took a pic of it, shared it on their social media as if they were saying : “Yo world, I’ve finally tried this fancy dessert! Bet you haven’t.”
And BOOM!, the fame was over. There came another kind of desserts, more good looking, more “photogenic” which make it a lot easier to catch with our camera. Besides, people began to find a way to make it themselves at home! Which turned out, to be quite easy. (Psst. You can even make a ‘quick’ version of it using your microwave!)
You know, Molten Lava Cakes is usually baked using ramekin, a small ceramic bowl (just like the one at the photo) and basically it only has four main ingredients : butter, eggs, sugar, and of course, chocolate. Chocolate and butter are melted together, eggs and sugar (and a lil bit of salt) are whisked, and flour is added later. Bake it until it’s slightly cooked and voila! There goes your fancy molten cakes. Anyway, it’s best served with vanilla ice cream!
There’s no other pleasure than scooping out that warm, gooey chocolate that oozes out as they melt, don’t you think?
