Molten Chocolate Cake

Hi,

I know everyone's got one of these on their menu nowadays, but can anyone recommend a place that does one particularly well? Preferably from a bakery or someplace where I can take it home. I'm flexible with location, but the closer to DTLA, the better. A friend mentioned Susina Bakery, but I wanted to see if I could get a few more opinions. Thanks!

    I think a Molten Lava Cake is one of those things that doesn't travel well -- it has to be served hot in order to get the molten part right.

    We like the one from Roy's. Morton's also does a good one.

      Agreed, unfortunately the take-home part is more a matter of logistics than personal preference.

        You can probably get some from Roy's for "take out" if you call them. Also if you go over to the Home Cooking board/or search online I know that Roy's has a recipe floating around for it somewhere (probably Googleable).

      Pazzo Gelato has them to go unheated.

        Go to Costco.

        Buy a box of the Sweet Streets Molten Chocolate Cake.

        Go home.

        Pop one in the Microwave.

        Heat for 40-50 seconds.

        Eat.

          Not sure if they still carry them, but Trader Joes also used to have them in the frozen section. They are quite good.
