Molten cake Hazelnut Chocolate Filling
Molten chocolate cake, also known as "lava cake," is a type of chocolate cake that has a warm, liquid chocolate filling inside. The cake is typically made with a rich chocolate batter, and a small amount of chocolate chips or chocolate chunks are added to the center of the cake before baking.
When the cake is baked, the chocolate in the center melts and creates a warm, gooey filling. The exterior of the cake is firm, while the center is soft and flowing.
The origin of molten chocolate cake is often attributed to Jean-Georges Vongerichten, a French chef, who accidentally created the dish in the 1980s at his New York City restaurant, JoJo. He left some chocolate cake batter in the oven for too long, and when he took it out, he discovered that the center of the cake was still liquid and warm. He served it to customers as a new dessert and it quickly became popular.
Molten chocolate cake is now a popular dessert around the world and can be found on the menu of many fine dining restaurants. It can also be made at home with a chocolate lava cake mix or by following a recipe. Some variations may include adding different types of chocolate, different types of filling, or different toppings like ice cream, whipped cream, or berries.
