Molten Chocolate Cake

Molten Chocolate Cake

We often walked past many Starbucks outlets and stole glances at their Molten Chocolate Cake. But having tried many disappointing ones, we were rather apprehensive about trying Starbucks’ version. But well, it was past 10pm on a weekday night and there weren’t many dessert/cake places around, hence we decided to give it a shot.

Thankfully, it wasn’t all that disappointing! The Molten Chocolate Cake was pretty decent, at least it fulfilled the basic requirement of having a warm molten chocolate centre. The outer sponge crust wasn’t too sweet, and it was slightly charred and hard at the base and the edges. The chocolate sponge looked strangely porous. The amount of molten chocolate within the cake was less than satisfying, but overall the cake was still a pretty good attempt by Starbucks.

We ordered a Chocolate Peanut Butter Stack as well. We don’t really recall having seen it before, but it did look pretty good. It was made of alternating layers of peanut butter mousse and chocolate fudge, and topped with more nuts and drizzled with toffee sauce. The bottom crust was filled with chopped biscuit crumbs; it was lacking in crisp and crunchiness which led us to believe the cake was left on the shelf for quite long. The cake was more on the sweet and nutty side. Overall, it was a pretty satisfying cake for the sweet toothed, something which we did not expect from Starbucks!
