Recently, my friend's son turned 18 and he sent her a recipe he wanted for his cake, and she forwarded it to me and put me in charge of the cake. It was a molten lava cake recipe.
Well, back in the day, 19 years ago BC (before children), I used to make a lot of molten lava cakes. It was one of John's favorites, so I would try different recipes and make them. I have a recipe binder that I use to keep only recipes that I have made and liked. So, when my friend texted me this recipe I went to my recipe binder to compare recipes. I found two molten lava cake recipes that I had made before, but I wasn't sure which was better. Well, I just decided to make all three and only keep the best recipe book in my binder, and record the best recipe here. Then, lo, and behold, while typing this I went searching through my blog and I found another molten lava cake I have blogged about before and I said that one was my favorite. I guess I have to make that one again too. I mean, what's a girl to do??
If you know me, and you've been around here on my blog, you know I love me a good recipe using a ramekin. Fun fact - I would often give ramekins as shower or wedding gifts with my favorite recipes to use them for.
Here are a few fun ramekin uses from past blog posts. The pictures will take you to the posts. I often use my ramekins for dips as well. I have these cute heart shaped ramekins that I love using too!
This was the Molten Lava cake I discovered on my blog today.
It is a Paula Dean Recipe you can find HERE.
I said it was good, but now I have to compare it to the other.
