Lava cake, also known as molten chocolate cake, is a decadent dessert that is characterized by its rich, gooey chocolate center. Typically, the cake is made by baking a chocolate cake batter until it is just set on the outside but still soft and runny on the inside now with a fruity variant.

To add a burst of citrusy flavor to the classic lava cake recipe, an orange filling can be added. This filling is made by mixing together fresh orange juice, orange zest, and sugar.
