WeiBer Lavakuchen is the name of this dessert and you best be ready to feast on this! Don’t be fooled by the exterior of this cake either because though the outer shell may be hard, the filling is soft, gooey and warm. White chocolate tends to be sweet but with this molten lava cake, it’s just the right touch of deliciousness. The cake itself is pretty dense but that offers as good consistency to “mop” up all the lovely lava mixture.
