Lava cake is a type of cake that is made with molten chocolate in the center. The cake is usually served warm with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.
Lava cake was first created in the 1970s by French chef Pierre Hermé. Hermé was working at a restaurant in New York City when he had the idea to create a cake with a liquid center. He named the cake the “volcano cake” and it quickly became a popular menu item.
Lava cake became even more popular in the 1980s when it was featured in several movies and television shows. One of the most popular lava cake recipes is the “Death by Chocolate” cake, which was featured in the movie “Ghostbusters II”.
If you're looking for an indulgent treat that's easy to make, try making lava cake! Start by preheating your oven and greasing a muffin tin. Next, mix together butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and flour. Make sure to mix them together until they form a thick batter. Then, divide the batter into the muffin tin and bake for about 15 minutes. Once the cake is done, let it cool for a few minutes before carefully removing from the tin. Serve with a scoop of ice cream for a delicious dessert!
