These warm Molten Chocolate Cakes look decadent but are a quick and easy dessert you can whip up in minutes using ingredients found in your pantry.
Need a quick and yummy dessert recipe? Put this in your back pocket and pull it out when you have last minute guests or even for a midweek surprise. What’s more fun than surprising the crew with dessert, especially a tray full of warm MOLTEN CHOCOLATE CAKES?!?!
These cakes are super easy to prep, and they can bake while you’re eating dinner. I’m betting that you even have all of the ingredients on hand right now: chocolate chips, butter, flour, eggs. The only thing you might not have is superfine sugar. Do you need superfine sugar? I recommend that you use it. Regular granulated sugar doesn’t dissolve as well into these soft cakes when they bake, resulting in a gritty texture. But never fear. Pulse your regular sugar for 30 seconds in a blender or food processor, and you’ll have a close enough version of superfine sugar without having to make another trip to the store.
The smell of these chocolate cakes is intoxicating, and I guarantee you’ll be salivating to eat them right away. Resist the temptation if you can. There is nothing worse than ruining a perfectly good dessert with a burned tongue, so let them cool for a few minutes after baking. Then break out the vanilla ice cream for an extra dose of decadence, and enjoy the looks of adoration from your family. Job well done.
