Chocolate Molten Cakes

Chocolate Molten Cake

My husband has always been the one with a passion for chocolate desserts. Me? I am not a chocolate lover, I prefer fruit desserts.

For the longest time chocolate cake was never really on my list of favorites. If choosing between a banana cake and a chocolate cake, I would not hesitate for a second…I’ll take the banana. But after eating these Chocolate Molten Cakes with vanilla ice cream, I have changed my tune. This simple, rich and delicious chocolate cake has become one of my favorite desserts.

Buen provecho!



  • 1/2 cup butter plus more for greasing the pans
  • 5 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 eggs

    I could easily live without chocolate but I do enjoy these kinds of desserts: like sticky toffee cake, or pudding cakes. The texture is what does me in and I think this is the best way to enjoy something chocolatey. Very pretty.

    Looks amazing, but I was thinking when you were talking about chocolate and bananas why not have them both together? I can see myself dipping my banana in the middle of the gooey chocolate.

    Hi, I tried this chocolate cake recipe yesterday but somehow couldn’t achieve the same result as you, my cake really wasn’t looking that good (atleast it tasted good). What sort of chocolate are you using? Maybe it’s coming from the flour I used, i’m gluten intelorant so I used amaranth flour instead of regular wheat flour.

    O.K., I don’t mean to sound ignorant but, are you using 6 eggs total? 3 yolks only, and then 3 more eggs with the egg whites included? Or do you mean 3 eggs total? Thanks
