Molten Lava Cakes are one of those desserts I like to have when I want to give myself a nice treat. It’s fudgy, decadent, and the rich chocolate center is to die for. It’s a chocolate lover’s dream, and this recipe won’t let you down!
You’ll get all the same characteristics of a normal molten lava cake, but vegan! And even if you’re not vegan, I can guarantee that you’ll enjoy this recipe because it’s chocolate…who can really turn down a chocolate cake with a melting chocolate center?
One thing to note about molten lava cakes is that they are not your normal cakes. Normally, a lava cake is a combination of a flourless cake and a soufflé. When I was testing these, I made sure that I didn’t treat them as a regular cake. I’m happy to say that it turned out pretty good (otherwise this recipe wouldn’t be up, am I right?).
First of all, I highly recommend using ramekins for lava cakes. They’re the perfect size and you can easily invert the cakes onto a plate. However, if you don’t have ramekins, you can use a cupcake tin. The size will be a bit smaller, so you might have to adjust the filling as it might be a little too big. Once they’re done baking, carefully use spoon or offset spatula to release them and to place them onto a plate.
I thought that this recipe would be perfect for Valentine’s day. Obviously, you can eat this whenever you want. It’ll be perfect for an at-home date night or even a nice celebration with friends! Top it off with powdered sugar, ice cream, or even some berries. Either way, you’ll definitely impress your guests with this yummy chocolate dessert.
