Last week was so chilly, as a cold front came through. I’m whispering as I say this, but it felt like a little bit of “fall” was in the air. Now I’m not ready for summer to end, trust me, but I must admit, fall flavors excite me.

What is lava cake made of?

Think cinnamon, pecans, caramel, and maple syrup? Yes! These delicious ingredients are in these handmade lava cakes, with no preservatives!

Is Lava Cake just undercooked cake? But these cakes are pre-cooked with a ganache like filling for the “lava”.

I love the quality ingredients of these little pots, that come four in a pack.

The little handmade pots are filled with cinnamon cake, topped with crunchy pecans, and made with a molten caramel center with 100% maple syrup.

How do you cook the pots

Pop in the oven and serve! This is the way we did it.

Or, there are also microwave directions.

The gooey lava center is the shining star of this fantastic dessert.

We served with fresh fruit and whipped cream—oh so good.

Reuse the pots

These little pots are great for reusing, too–the perfect size for a charcuterie board! You can use them for dipping sauces, or even for organization in one of your drawers!

They are dishwasher safe … so cute!
