This is not a lava cake. It is not a molten cake. It’s chocolate pudding. That’s the proper name. I’ll go so far as to call it chocolate pudding cake for you, but that’s it. This perfect confection doesn’t need a trendy name. Nope. No way. It needs an old fashioned name. A name that confuses people. “Chocolate pudding?” That’s what you’ll ask. You’ll be all: but there’s awesome chocolate cake in there. And I’ll say: yah, I know. Deal.
Hey, have you noticed that I’m really into italics these days? It’s like I can’t stop myself. Well, I could stop myself, but I don’t feel like it.
This is an easy dessert to throw together at the last minute. Like, say, when you’re having an almost-nervous-breakdown about something. Chocolate can fix that. Or maybe you make it when some stupid plonker just stops by because he/she was thinking of you and happened to be in the neighbourhood. (Actually you probably shouldn’t encourage that sort of behaviour with chocolate pudding. You should probably say: just send me an e-card next time.)
When this pudding comes out of the oven you’ll hear the chocolate sauce bubbling away under the cake. That’s the sound of the sauce trying to run away from your face. But the chocolate cake holds the sauce down. It’s holding the sauce down until you can get there. It’s holding it down while people start yelling, “fight, fight, fight!” And then you eat it. And you are happy.
