Molten Lava Cake

I'm back again guys with this month's Sweet Punch! Thank god, I joined Sweet Punch, for atleast because of this I am making a compulsive appearance in the blogging world. I am juggling full time between work, home and kids. Specially the absence of Ma in my life has totally taken the spice out of it! She would be back in November and only then I would be able to breathe easy. Well guys, less talk due to time crunch.

Divya hosted this month's challenge. This cake is a breeze to make, less ingredients, easy straight forward steps. Most important is that the outcome of such a quick recipe can be so rewarding! Well, I had never encountered baking chocolate before this. Nags and Divya suggested to go for Morde. Unfortunately, I couldn't catch hold of it. Finally I got Lindt's Chocolate with Orange and Almond flakes. Used it, but was unsure if it was baking chocolate or not. Phew! My extra proactive mind added a hint of baking powder to the batter just in case. Also, I didn't have ramekins. So baked them in my muffin tray. Outcome was small yummilicious choco-orange-almond muffins with a not so-oeey-gooey inside. Even though I baked for shorter duration, no lava emerged! (Can't stop drooling over my fellow bloggers' lava cakes. I'm gonna get some ramekins soon and erupt that volcano and make that lava flow baby!) Abbas said "It was my best so far". Everytime, I come out with a Sweet Punch recipe, I'm managing to impress him more than the last time! That's what is driving me to participate every month without fail! Thanks Ria, Divya and Maria. Maria, come back soon. We'll miss you...
