Molten Chocolate Cakes are individual rich mini chocolate cakes that have a pocket of delicious chocolate sauce inside. This cake has a brownie-like crust and a warm, creamy “pudding-like center” that oozes out when you cut into it. You can serve this supremely delicious rich cake on it’s own or with the warm Black Cherry Sauce. These molten chocolate cakes are surprisingly easy to make, but tastes like you slaved away in the kitchen all day!
History: In 1987, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, chef-owner of JoJo restaurant in New York, accidentally came up with the molten chocolate cake. It is said that he pulled a chocolate sponge cake (the recipe is his mother’s) out of the oven too early. He tasted the cake and discovered that it was delicious, even with an underdone center. He called the cake a Chocolate Valrhona Cake, named after the chocolate he used, and served it with vanilla ice cream.
