I can think of multiple scenarios where a molten chocolate cake might be necessary:
(a) You have no job, you’re bored, and you’re hungry.
(b) You’re caught in a love triangle and attempting to win someone over by showcasing your outstanding baking skills.
(c) You’re on Top Chef and the quickfire is to create a dessert (gasp!) in 20 minutes.
Enter molten chocolate lava cakes.
These intense, gooey cakes could not be simpler to make or more delicious. I normally have all of the ingredients in my pantry (who doesn’t stock up on chocolate baking squares “just in case”?), so the worst part about putting this recipe together is waiting while they’re in the oven.
