Intense, dark and with runny chocolate at the heart: that's how this mœlleux or lava cake is loved best by many chocolate lovers. For this recipe, chef Alexandre worked with Callebaut®'s Power 80 chocolate to bring out a really solid and powerful chocolate taste in it. You can definitely serve it as such, or side it with a scoop of ice cream or sorbet.
