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.
