Chocolate Molten Cake

Image

Chocolate Molten cake is an intense dessert.  Chocolate and cakey on the outside, hot, smooth and even more chocolatey on the inside.  You can buy it at a restaurant or make your own.  The ingredients are basic: butter, chocolate, sugar, eggs, and drop of flour.  Find the appropriate recipe online, bake for 12 minutes.  The outsides will be baked but the insides should remain a bit raw and a lot delicious.

Who created this decadent dish?  Which living creature had the imagination to whip up this food of delight?  This, my friend, is the heart of the saga.

It all started with Jean-Georges Vongerichten, a U.S based chef and author of five cookbooks.  He claims that he created this cake by accident (duh), in New York City in 1987.  He allegedly undercooked a batch of little chocolate cakes and lo and behold, the mouth-watering chocolate molten cake was born.

Others protest.  “No!” They yell out loud – some louder than others, “The French have been baking this dessert for centuries! Since the days of Charlemagne!  Stop stealing our French thunder you American ignoramuses!”

Amongst the protestors is Chef Jacques Torres, otherwise known as “Mr. Chocolate.”

Torres, Dean of the Pastry Arts at the International Culinary Center, has protested loudly enough to garner much media attention.  And for this, he shall be praised.

Like you, I am at my wits end, trying to decide with whom to claim complete allegiance.  As can be observed by the casual looker-on, both men enjoy crossing their arms.  The crossing of arms is an international symbol for creating subconscious defensive barriers. Both men have something to hide.

Who do you think really created this great food?  Was it Vongerichten or Mr. Chocolate?

This predicament has had Americans scratching their heads for decades, yet the rift does not seem to be mending itself in the near future.

  1. Fascinating. I might add that chocolate molten cake is known too for its ease in which it digests, much like leeks and leaches.

  2. Yes, chocolate molten is an excellent digestive aid. According to a recent scientific inquiry, it is a natural form of electrolytes and fiber.
