Lava Cake with Raspberry Sorbet

Is there any flavor combination more rich and perfect than chocolate and raspberryNo, no there isn’t. Although this lava cake can really be paired with whatever flavor of ice cream you fancy, there’s something about raspberry sorbet and lava cake that really hits the spot for me.

Is there any flavor combination more rich and perfect than chocolate and raspberryNo, no there isn’t. Although this lava cake can really be paired with whatever flavor of ice cream you fancy, there’s something about raspberry sorbet and lava cake that really hits the spot for me.

My craving for lava cake all started at this tweet:

That is no way to eat lava cake. It must be treated like royalty. So, I had to make my own and take beautiful pictures of it to cleanse my soul and make things right with the lava cake gods.

This easy recipe for lava cake is simple and flavorful. It’s best served warm, so if you’re planning to serve with ice cream–– eat quickly! The sweetness of the raspberry on this lava cake also blends well with the rich, dark chocolate.

It will yield four ramekins, so perfect for a small gathering… or extra dessert for date night… or four cakes for yourself. Really, whatever floats your boat. There are no wrong answers when it comes to lava cake.
