Chocolate is the most sorts after sweet of all times. It has been used since time immemorial to convey feelings to each other. People gift chocolates to their valentine on Valentine’s Day; we distribute chocolates on our birthday, gift chocolate to people wishing their good health and so on. Be it this way or that it has become an inseparable part of our lives. Some group (like me for example) cannot imagine their life without them.

The taste of this cake can differ according to the proportions of Cocoa powder used by you or the baker, so look carefully through recipe to get best results.
This is an absolutely luscious dessert involving chocolate. The Cake is called Chocolate Lava Cake for a reason. When we cut through this cupcake, Lava of Chocolate oozes out of the dessert. This dessert is a little peculiar owing to the fact that in some recipes flour is not used to make this dessert and in other Choc chips are placed in the centre of the cupcake so that when it bakes the chips melt and produce the lava. Whatever it may be this Cake is a must taste for all Chocolate lovers as it absolutely chocolaty!!
