Molten chocolate cake, chocolate lava cake, chocolate fondant pudding…call it whatever you want. These babies are utterly delicious! Chocolate cake with a gooey center…what else could anyone ask for? I made this in under 30 minutes from start to finish and only used two bowls. The temptation was so great that I whipped my camera out, snapped some pictures and dug straight in. Sorry, no pictures of molten center :( It’s a wonder I managed to even take pictures! Hehe.

This is a no fail recipe. Over bake it and you get…cake! Under bake it and you get…more gooey stuff! These keep well too. Just heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds before serving. What gets even better is that this recipe is also very flexible. Add in a tiny bit of raspberry or vanilla extract. Or throw in a tiny, tiny minuscule pinch of chili to give it some kick. I don’t want to set your pants on fire but knock yourself out! :)
