SWEET-MEMORIES FROM 2020: QUARANTINE CONTINUES, TIME TO DO A LOT OF BAKING, MOLTEN LAVA CAKES THIS TIME.
This is not my recipe but it’s sooo good! This recipe is from natashaskitchen.com blog, one of my daughter Suzy favorite blogger. The best part is that I made this recipe last year with three of my four grandsons through Zoom! Molten Lava cakes are small cakes that when you cut into it, melted chocolate flows out. You have to cook them exactly for the time and temperature given because if you over cook them, the melted chocolate won’t flow. It’s so YUMMMM!
Approx. Prep and Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Approximate Cost: $6 to $8.00

¼ tsp. salt
