Let’s Review the February Baking Challenge

February 2017 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Chocolate Lava Cakes

February’s baking challenge was chocolate lava cakes– and it was the first month I tested this baking challenge out. And I was blown away by your response! So many of you felt a monthly baking challenge was exactly what you needed to get out of a winter slump, get creative in the kitchen, and challenge yourself. Reading your comments and excitement meant the world to me and motivated me to brainstorm each monthly baking challenge recipe for the remainder of the year.

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Allison:

“I have been wanting to learn how to bake these and I’ve seen several different methods. But the search is over as these were amazing and tasted just as good if not better than ones I’ve had at restaurants!”

We gathered as many chocolate lava cakes photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to guarantee your photo will be included!)

PS: Did you try the lava cakes? What did you think?


  1. Hi, I just posted the lava cake on instagram, it turned out to be so easy and delisious, can’t wait for the next challenge!!

  2. Sharon K (The Farm Chick Bakes ) says:

    Hi Sally, for some reason my post on your baking challenge fell off…but I just re-posted it! Looking forward to the next one!

  3. Sally, the monthly baking challenge is brilliant! Thank you! I tried the lava cakes (having made them once before) for a Valentine’s Day treat and my Hubs loved them! It was perfectly special for love day. Unfortunately in our chocolate madness we forgot to take a pic. Oh well, better luck next month! Looking forward to the March baking challenge!

    1. That’s ok you didn’t snap a picture! Maybe for this month’s challenge instead. 🙂 Here it is if you haven’t seen it yet!

  4. My 9-year-old daughter made the chocolate lava cakes for the family as a Valentine’s treat. She had so much fun baking them and we enjoyed eating them. We are looking forward to the next challenge!

  5. Really enjoyed making the chocolate lava cakes! I will try it again another day when I am not racing to get finished before bedtime for my 3 year old. But I must say even rushing they turned out really well. I left one in the ramekin and reheated it the next night as a special treat – just as enjoyable on night two! Heading over to check out the March challenge now.
