Chocolate lava cakes are guaranteed showstoppers at the end of a satisfying meal. But sometimes you want a treat that's a bit lighter than chocolate. Enter these lemon lava cakes. They deliver all the drama of the chocolate version, but with a bright hit of lemon flavor. White chocolate is the secret ingredient that provides that luscious molten center.
These cakes are simple to make, but the timing is crucial if you want to ensure a nice, dramatic ooze-out when you cut into them with a fork. Bake them until they're set around the edges, but don’t let them go too long. Finally, let them rest for 5 minutes to firm up before inverting them onto serving plates.
