Chocolate Marshmallow Molten Lava Cakes

The first time I ever tried a Molten Lava Cake I laughed right out loud, and then spent forever trying to learn the recipe at home. Now you can make Chocolate Marshmallow Molten Lava Cakes at home yourself, and with a lot more ease than my early efforts.This recipe makes it all from scratch. Don’t let that deter you from trying the recipe, though. The pictures that recipe creator, Karina, puts on the site for you to follow, form a complete and clear series of directions for you to follow. You might want to read the recipe from start to finish just so you have the steps in your mind as you go along. Young bakers may need a hand if they want to attempt this recipe. The results are rather spectacular, though, so work in collaboration to try this one out.

Molten Lava Cakes are so fantastic because they combine what is fundamentally a flourless chocolate cake with a pudding in the middle. The flavor combination of biting into a soft cake and gooey center is unparalleled. The cake may have existed in France for some time, known as Chocolate Moelleux, but it was brought to the USA only in the late 1980s and has gained in popularity ever since then.

Sometimes dishes like this one require specialized cookware; however, in this case, you can make these wonderful desserts in muffin tins. Just be sure to remove them as soon as they can be handled so they don’t stick to the tin. The dessert is often accompanied in various ways. It can have a chocolate ganache poured on top of the cake, or have ice cream or whipped cream served on the side. A bit of fruit, for example, a large strawberry is a great way to let guests politely sop up the ganache (otherwise you will risk people not being able to lift and lick!) that is left behind.

Any way you serve it, this dish is lovely, surprising, decadent and a real pleasure to bake and serve. This dish is elegant enough to be served to very special guests, but really easy enough to prepare from time to time for your own family. They will certainly call for it!
