  • Molten Lava Pastry



    Molten Lava Pastry


    This is an American dessert classic in a different shape. We start with a rich moist chocolate sacher cake, filled with a chocolate pool of ganache in the center. When heated, the ganache center oozes out of the middle when cut with a fork or spoon for warm chocolate confection.

     

    More Chocolate? Flourless Chocolate Torte with no flour and more chocolate. For lighter fare try our Pastel Mirror Minis.

    Serving suggestion: Warm the thawed cake in the microwave for just 15-18 seconds.  Drizzle with a little raspberry or strawberry fruit syrup and enjoy with a strong black coffee.

     

    The United States-based chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten claims to have invented molten chocolate cake in New York City in 1987, but the French chef and chocolatier Jacques Torres has disputed that claim, arguing that such a dish already existed in France. According to Vongerichten, he pulled a chocolate sponge cake from the oven before it was done and found that the center was still runny, but was warm and had both a good taste and a good texture. Regardless of who invented the dish, Vongerichten has been credited with popularizing it in the United States, and it is now almost a de rigueur inclusion on high-end restaurant dessert menus.
