    This was super rich for me..very tasty but a bit too rich. I didnt get the lava effect either, so I stuck some dark chocolate wafers into the center to melt and create the effect.

    They tasted ok, but no “lava” came out. Kind of disappointed:(

    They taste great, but needed to cook for an additional 4-5 minutes due to my oven.

    Easy to make and came out of ramekins easily. Would try cooking 30 seconds to a minute less next time for more molten center.

    The center didn’t quite flow out like at a restaurant but it was pretty cool that it was soft in the middle. I did have to go around the edge of the ramekin with a knife so that it would come out. My ramekins were small so the recipe was enough for 3 servings. I thought the chocolate was just right. This was pretty easy to make so I would probably make it again when I wanted a small chocolate fix.

    it was good, turned out like it should but was a little too creamy for my taste. Reminded me of a marshmallow almost

    Loved it! It’s not quite the lava effect like in a restaurant so I added chocolate fudge on the top. And vanilla ice cream!

    It turned it super good. The only thing is that 13 minutes was too long. I did it for ten the second time and they turned out perfect!

    my first lava cake turned out sooo good!!!!!!
    Connie Reid a year ago
    First attempt cooking for 13 minutes was not good, they were uncooked. Second try at 18 minutes cakes were overdone. So today I will try 15-16 minutes and see how it goes. The flavor of first lot was fantastic even if uncooked.

    Amazing 😍😍. I made it just the way it was and with a little vanilla ice cream it’s the best.

    It was super good! I tried cooking it on 375, but it didnt turn out as good as the 400. I also used a combination of semisweet chocolate chips and ghirrardeli milk chocolate chips. Dang good!
