I just posted the buttery Ooey Gooey Butter Cake a couple days ago. The recipe was so fascinating to me that I immediately had to make it in chocolate!
While I really enjoyed this chocolatey richness of this dessert, I think “taste wise” the same results can be achieved by simply making brownies or a rich chocolate cake. However, I will happily taste-test my theory a few more times.
One thing I do absolutely love about this dessert is the texture. The thin top layer of delicate chocolate flakiness resting precariously over the ooey gooey molten cocoa flavored lava lusciousness is pretty darn amazing. They battle it out in your mouth, the sweet rich velvet like cake and the crispy top layer of crust. Just to be clear, there are no losers in that battle.
This recipe is just barely adapted from Food Network.
Many wise readers informed me on the Ooey Gooey Butter cake that there are many, many different flavors you can try.
I just want you to know, I am willing to sacrifice time and resources to sample every single one of them. I do it all for you.
