Chef John's Chocolate Lava Cake

Rating: 4 stars 317
Legend has it that this dessert was the result of a major catering disaster. The dessert for this particular event was to be individual chocolate cakes, but someone took them out of the ovens too soon and the centers were not cooked enough and still liquefied. Well, there was no time to take them off the plates and bake them more, so the chef simply had his wait staff introduce the dessert as Chocolate 'Lava' Cake! Brilliant!

Marry-Me Blueberry Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 54
I had a man propose to me after tasting this pie at a party. Yes, it's that good. The secret is my grandmother's super-flaky pie crust recipe. Best with fresh blueberries or dewberries.
