This molten chocolate cake recipe is a decadent chocolate dessert for Valentine’s Day or any day that just needs chocolate. Made with red wine and raspberries, it has a lightly fruity flavor along with the rich chocolate.
You Seriously Deserve Chocolate Desserts!
I have a horrible sweet tooth and the hardest part about the whole ‘healthy eating’ thing for me is giving up dessert. Most days when dinner is done, I just push away from the table and skip the after dinner sweets.
But, Valentine’s Day is coming up and don’t we all deserve a little something sweet on this delicious holiday? And when I decide that I am going to splurge on dessert, it isn’t going to be some boring, store bought cookie.
Oh, no! I am going to go all out and enjoy something a little bit decadent like the molten chocolate cake I made yesterday! And hey, it has chocolate AND red wine it…that makes it totally healthy, right?
How do you make molten chocolate cake?
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!
