I’ve always wanted to make a chocolate cake ,where the centre is all gooey and oozes out in a puddle of liquid chocolate !YUM ! Thanks to a ‘foodie friend’ who very kindly shared with me the you tube video of Chef Manu Chandra’s molten lava cake…I made it and now happily would like to share it with you…the only addition i made to this recipe was some vanilla extract because I love that smell wafting out of the oven and I’m always apprehensive with a high content of egg yolk if the cake might turn out smelling ‘eggy’ !!!If you like the chocolate bomb that is available at ‘Little Italy’…then you will love this one too !
This is the picture of the finished lava cake,I regret that I do not have a good enough picture of the molten chocolate…a good excuse to make it all over again…while the recipe calls for 4 portions,i split the batter into 6 portions,enough to satisfy and less butter per person that way !!!
Now, I need to do justice in describing this luscious cake…very low in flour and sugar,it’s the perfect treat to get a chocoholic to do your bidding ;))…if you can ever use food to bribe someone then this should be at the top of your list !!!! Lol ! The thrill of unmolding a still hot cake to perfection was written all over my face…thanks to Manu Chandra of Olive Beach…it was a flawless recipe…only the baking time differs depending on your oven,so after 10 mts watch it like a hawk !!!! Silence prevailed as spoons were quickly pushed into the heart of this cake…which resulted in a fair bit of mess…should have expected that…maybe a picture of the chins dribbling with chocolate would have been more appropriate and endearing… but the next time I make it…I do hope to reduce the quantity of butter !
