Molten Chocolate Cake Recipe and a Chocolate Dessert Roundup

And hey, it has chocolate AND red wine it…that makes it totally healthy, right?

This molten chocolate cake recipe literally took me 30 minutes to make and it is all assembled in one pot so cleanup is incredibly easy.  The addition of red wine to the recipe gives the chocolate just a touch of ‘fruitiness’ to it which is made even sweeter by the addition of raspberries on top.  I definitely recommend serving this molten chocolate cake recipe right from the oven so it is still warm and gooey.  If you have to let it sit, reheat it for 30 seconds or so in the microwave before eating.  The inside is like an undercooked brownie and I wanted to lick the bowl clean after I was finished with it!

  1. You had me at chocolate! All of these recipes look great but I really can’t wait to try your molten cake! Yum!

  2. Molten cake is one of our favorite things to order when we eat out. Will have to try to make it ourselves!
