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.
I will take chocolate - especially molton chocolate!
WOW! What a fabulous muffin. Your recipes always work so well - and are so tasty. Thanks!
OMG!!!! This is toooooo tempting and is simply irresistible for a chocoholic like me 🙂
wow It's sinfully rich..and delicious!
I'm Like You Erica, I Really Don't Like Chocolate, I Love Fruits, But This Really Looks Good, I Think I Have To Give It A Try!

You know I'm a chocoholic, you can't show me this elegant cake 🙂
I'm not a big dessert eater, but this is one I could not refuse.
I'm a huge chocolate lover -- these look amazing Erica! That molten chocolate is calling my name. 🙂
Oh yea, I could go for one of those with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
oh wow I bet he was in heaven !
Baking is my Zen
OMG! Can I come over for dessert?????
Mmmmm! Yummy! Look at that chocolate lava oozing out of the cake!
My husband has the sweet tooth too and he would looooove this!

Love the chocolate oozey baby! My kind of dessert! Yum!
I'm not really a chocolate fan either...but warm molten chocolate. That I can't resist. These look heavenly!
Thank you everyone!
Chocolate....sinful...decadent.....but the love of my life.....
What a great desert!
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.
i don't go crazy about chocolate desserts, but there's no way i can deny how tasty this looks. i ADORE oozing, melted chocolate. sinful. 🙂
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.
I hear you. I am fruit dessert person too. But this bowl of gorgeousness is going to be licked clean by A and the kids!!! I have to make it for them at least once.
oooooooh,...aaaaaaaah,....oooooh: Now, this is one fantastic chocolate lovers desert!!
I would like to savour it right awy,...thanks!!!
You are not a chocolate lover? Whaaaaaaat? I have a friend in Brazil and her daughter doesn't like chocolate, she actually hate it. Oh Boy! your warm molten chocolate cake thingy is making me dizzy. I so need one right now. LOL
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.
Jacalyn- I used all purpose flour and I used semi sweet chocolate, but I don't remember the brand.
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
Deb- yes!!! 3 yolks and 3 whole eggs.
Is this recipe colombian???
school project yummy extra credit
🙂 lookat it from the side
How many ramekins did you use?
So, isn't chocolate molten cake a chocolate lava cake?
Is it still ok if you use semi-sweet CHOCOLATE CHIPS??? Cause im making it now.
How many does this make?
Sally- 6 small cakes
Thank you! If I were to use a muffin tray, would it make about twice that?
Can you bake this the day before and have it still be good?
I don't know!
