Lava cake is also known as molten chocolate cake. It is a popular dessert that has liquid chocolate oozing out of the cake when you slice into it. This recipe takes that popular dessert into a new magical level. A chocolate disc is placed on top of the cake. Warm chocolate ganache is poured over the disc which causes it to melt and “drop” into the center of the cake. Decadent, warm, and moist, this dessert is the perfect way to end a meal.
