This week, I felt a little bit like Norman does pretty much every week: confused and wanting to go back to baking roots. I had never heard of a self-saucing pud and baked alaskas are, to me, somewhat of a fuss (I don’t say that too often..). I wanted to have a go at Kate’s chocolate puds with salted caramel filling and vanilla whipped cream, but I had a case of Murphy’s Law, not having time to bake them before (darn thesis!) being out of eggs, not being able to go to the shops and not having the right equipment (but honestly, are dariole molds worth investing in? I don’t know). So this week no recipe, but rather a nice list of yummy looking self saucing puds (a.k.a. molten lava cakes) to get inspired. Warning: chocolate is involved, in a big way! I think most of what could have been said about last week’s episode has been said already – and then again – on (social) media so I will just keep to the list this time!
7 of the Best Molten Lava Cakes
The best chocolate, some fresh berries or other fruit and an oozing, gooey chocolate centre – divine!
With a flavor combination reminding of those of Paris’ most famous patisserie chefs, this delicate and asian flavor inspired molten lava cake is sure to make an impression!
Lava cakes, the American Way! Chocolate and oozing peanut butter – quintessentially ‘merican!
6. The Gluten-Free One: Flourless Chocolate Lava Cakes
You don’t have to miss out on the chocolaty goodness if you’re eating gluten-free, try this gluten-free version of a classic!
7. The One Without Chocolate: Meyer Lemon Molten Lava Cakes
Don’t like chocolate? Fret not! There are other options out there! Citrus makes a wonderful flavor for a molten lava cake, a this particular number shows.
