LAVA CAKE (recipe + video)


Hey lovelies!

This is a recipe I’ve been meaning to do for a while, a few months ago I had an appreciation lunch with people from work and we had lava cake, it was so delicious and it is certainly so easy to make that I had been craving it ever since!

For those of you who don’t know, Lava Cake is this dessert that’s neither a brownie nor a cake, cakey and soft on the outside and gooey on the inside.
