HCB'ers Day ~ Molten Chocolate Souffle and Lava Cakes


A chocolate dessert that did not send me over the edge, with me talking to myself for several days; what a treat! Heavenly Cake Baker's has definitely helped me grow and widen my horizons with new kitchen skills. If sighing over frustrating mishaps ever becomes a language, I am already fluent.


I used to whip open Rose Beranbaum's Heavenly Cakes cookbook with excitement. Now I approach the cookbook cautiously, open slowly, and let out a HUGE sigh of relief if the recipe is 3 pages or less.


I used the Baker's spray and was relieved to see the spray finally work for me. I have tried the Baker's spray before with disastrous results. The lava cake batter was fluffy and the ganache centers looked so good resting on top.


I was surprised how puffed up these little souffle cakes were first out of the oven. Like a souffle, the little cakes also shrink right up. I was not over excited about the chocolate flavor and my ganache was not oozing out like Roses'. I did like how fast these little cakes went together and nothing stuck to the bottom of my cake cups . . . I am still not over the caramel issue from last time. Looking forward to next week's quick bread. Happy baking everyone!

I love the heart pans. Mine were a little messy and no lava flow, but tasted good.

Your lava cakes are adorable--especially the hearts! Shandy, you are baking and cooking machine! How do you do it all? And how do you not weigh 500 pounds? LOL!

I love your heart shape ramekins, and your molten chocolate souffle look tempting!

Beth said...

Those cakes are so cute. I love your little pans!

Andrea said...

I love your heart shaped ramekins! It's nice to see that it worked with regular ramekins and not just silicon pans.

Your suffle cakes look divine! I commend you and any one else brave enough to do anything other than drool over the pages of Rose's book! LOL I checked it out from the library once and was seriously overwhelmed by the intense directions for most recipes. Anyways...congrats on such a fantastic job with these cakes. Wish I was close by to try a cake and get some of your left over brittle! =)

Your molten lava cakes look wonderful, especially the heart-shaped ones. Very moist! What was it about the chocolate flavor that you didn’t like? I would like to try these sometime.

I hate when my desserts stick. Especially when they look like they turn out so delicious like these look.
