Irresistible Petit Gateau

Sharing is caring!

This is my favorite dessert in the all world. A pure chocolate mini cake, that when it’s open release a mouthwatering melted chocolate splash from heaven.

It is also my main option when I have guests in my house that I want to impress, and I don’t have the time to bake for hours. This dessert will only take you 30 minutes.

The famous petit gateau or popularly known as chocolate volcano is a French dessert that means small cake. It combines the technique of a cake and a sufflé.

The result is a mini cake with a melted inner that must be served hot and preferable with a portion of vanilla ice cream. Believe me, the best part of this decadent chocolate dessert is the contrast of the hot cake with the cold ice cream.

This dessert may have variations like including liquors as whiskey in the mix to make it a little more spicy. Also the ice cream can be whatever flavor you prefer.

The trick for the perfect petit gateau is the temperature of the oven. If you let the mini cakes too much time into the oven you will get a brownie, but if you take the cakes out of the oven too soon they just will crumble. So, set a timer and do not get distracted!
