Molten chocolate cake

This recipe is an extension of my previous post, Eggless chocolate cake. I could have posted this recipe yesterday itself. But then, I came to know about this recipe only after posting the chocolate cake recipe. I felt like kicking myself for not going through the recipe book earlier.

After posting the recipe for chocolate cake, I sat down to go through the book called Epicures Delectable desserts by Asha Khatau when my eyes fell on this recipe. This warm dessert involves the addition of chocolate syrup and Chocolate fudge sauce to the chocolate cake. It is then served with Vanilla ice cream garnished with almonds.  Each bite is of this dessert makes you feel like tasting heaven. Beware!! This is certainly not for calorie conscious people.
