A Little Bit Of History About The Chocolate Lava Cake….

In France, the Lava Cake is known as chocolate moelleux which means soft in French. I bring up the French name because there seems to be a bit of controversy when it comes to where the molten lava cake originated from.

A chef living in New York claimed to invent this lava cake in 1981. However, another French chef said he discovered this dessert after he took a chocolate sponge cake out of the oven and it was runny on the inside.

We aren’t sure exactly who has the claim to fame but this chocolate dessert is a regular item on menus now. The Chili’s Lava Cake at the popular chain restaurant is credited for bring this dessert to mainstream America.
