When people think of molten or lava cake, they think of this sophisticated and complicated dessert to prepare, but what if I would tell you that you only need 3 ingredients. Yes, you are reading right, 3 ingredients: eggs, dulce de leche, and flour. 

Ok, yes, those little ramekins which you probably don’t have at home can be easily solved! Go to the closest supermarket and buy a tin foil muffin pan. Cut each “muffin” individually and there you go! You can 6 ramekins!

Now, roll your sleeves, and get cooking.
