Here at Brit + Co., we love cake. Layer cake, ice cream cake, pound cake, upside down cake, and yes, even molten lava cake. And although some say that lava cake is sooo ’90s, we just don’t care; we love the ‘90s, and we love our lava cake. So, without further ado, here’s our glorious ode to the ooey, gooey and seriously sinful molten lava cake. Get hyped… and grab a glass of milk while you’re at it.
