ORIG­I­NAL MOLTEN CAKE

$6.50 each or $36 for six From 3 Inch Sin, #01-103 Mil­lenia Walk, tel: 6333-4562.

This boasted the best cake-to-lava pro­por­tion – there was just enough of the dense cake to add bite to the lus­cious melted Val­rhona choco­late fill­ing. We loved the slight bit­ter­ness that tem­pered the cake’s sweet rich­ness. It was also the quick­est to heat up, at just 10 sec­onds in the mi­crowave oven.

SIG­NA­TURE DARK CHOCO­LATE

$2.80 each, $8.20 for three, or $24 for nine From Smoul­der, #B1-68 Raf­fles City Shop­ping Cen­tre, tel: 6338-0661.

This bite-sized baby is the per­fect treat when you want a spot of dessert that’s sat­is­fy­ing but not over­whelm­ing. Three min­utes in the oven at 160 deg C turned the ex­te­rior nice and crusty; the molten core didn’t flow out when we cut into it, but it was smooth and thick. This was the sweet­est of the lot, so chil­dren may pre­fer it over its bit­ter­sweet con­tenders.

CHOCO­LATE LAVA CAKE

$6.80 each From Domino’s Pizza, www.domi­nos.com.sg

We were gen­uinely sur­prised to find this gem of a choco­late lava cake – be­neath the crusty baked top was a pool of gooey, hot fudge-like good­ness that we hap­pily lapped up. Our only gripe was with the cake base, which was a bit too soggy. It’s a large por­tion, so or­der this to share among at least three per­sons, or you may find it too cloy­ing.
