This is one of the essential recipes that helped elevate chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten to master chef status, and it will make you feel like one too. This five-ingredient molten chocolate cake is among his most replicated and imitated recipes at restaurants across the country. You can get the exact same results at home. Be sure to serve it with a scoop of great vanilla ice cream.
