Chocolate Molten Lava Cake Recipe

I used to have random cravings for chili’s molten lava cake ever since I had my first try with my handball mates over at the tanglin mall outlet. But for $10++ per serving, it’s really pricey. So I’ve always wanted to bake my own molten lava cake, but it honestly seemed hard to me, and I’ve always been more of a cupcake kind of person.But Jonathan loves chocolate stuffs, so after much bugging from him to make a molten lava cake, I went to research and found this recipe which seemed really easy.2013-01-11 22.35.302013-01-11 22.36.21

The second photo was really messy cause we started to dive into the cake after the first photo was taken, and we couldn’t take a good shot of the molten choc part. So for the next piece of cake, we broke it open to show only the inner goodness (:

Baking difficulty: Super easy!
Taste review: Die die must bake!
Tastes exactly like those in restaurants (namely chili’s), and what more can you ask for? Do remember to have it with ice cream for that 5/5 pleasure!
