Chocolate Spoon Cake

This famous french desert does not need any introduction. Also famous with name of molten chocolate cake or chocolate lava cake, this rich, creamy and gooey cake melts in the mouth. I specially love making this cake in single serve ramekins for parties or large family get-together.

Simply whip the batter a day before the event, pour in ramekins, wrap and leave in refrigerator. Bake it just 30 minutes before dessert course and wow your guests with warm chocolaty cake, just out of the oven.

I also love topping it with some vanilla ice-cream. yummy!!

Few sweet treats to accompany Chocolate Spoon Cakes!
