Chocolate Lava Cake

Today, I embarked on a journey to achieve the perfect consistency for Chocolate Lava cake. For those well-versed in the art of a Lava cake, on the outside, it looks like any normal chocolate cake. Once you dig into a Lava cake though, a gooey mess awaits you, waiting to tickle your tastebuds with its warm chocolatey goodness.

First attempt: Overcooked

Second attempt: Undercooked

After a few attempts: Perfect!

The origin of this cake is highly disputed. An American dude claimed he discovered it when he underbaked a chocolate cake by accident, but some French man claims that this is another "Made in France" product. Whatever the case, I think it's ingenious. Reminds me so much of how Viagra came into existance: a group of scientists trying to discover a treatment for heart disease realised their test subjects were mostly becoming horny instead of feeling less heartaches.

It's whether you give that ugly duckling a chance to become another kind of swan. Perfection is all but a matter of perception.
