Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes are some of the easiest and most decadent desserts to make at home! Only a few ingredients needed that you probably already have on hand!
Original Recipe posted 11/24/2009 when my blog was only one month old! The old photos were crappy. Very very crappy. So I updated them 🙂
If you’ve never had a lava cake before, you are in for a treat. They are DANGEROUS in my house because I always always always have the ingredients on hand.
I first tried this recipe when I was in college and after the first bite, I knew I needed the recipe. So, a few years went by and I completely forgot about it UNTIL my old roommate, Brandielle, posted it on the Pioneer Woman’s site and I found it! Man are these good. So good, in fact, that we made them two days in a row-by my family’s request. When you dig into these little cakes, the center oozes out warm fudgy heavenly goodness. Its especially delicious with ice cream!
These are not so good for my thunder thigh situation. But, that’s not your problem.
SO! If you’re looking for your chocolate fix, this will certainly fit the bill!
