Make the cake per the directions on the box. We have all done that, right? I am working on finding the right cake from scratch to vary the recipe, but for now a cake mix will do.

Pour the batter into a greased, 2 quart casserole dish suitable for the microwave. Plop the frosting by dollops into the batter. So far, a really simple recipe, right? So easy that the kids would have fun doing this one.

Big or small, the size of the dollops don't rally matter, just spread it out.

While the cake is baking you can have one of the kids clean up the kitchen. Now it needs to cool for 10 minutes so this is a good time to pull out the ice cream to get soft. Here you go, an ooey, gooey lava cake!

If you save some of the frosting you can put it on top now.

For a little variety, break up some walnuts or pecans and sprinkle on the batter under the frosting, it will appear in the lava later on.

If you don't have ice cream a little whipped cream would be good too.

Isn’t it a thing of beauty? And since you likely have all the ingredients in your pantry you can make this as a last-minute dessert if guests show up this holiday season. Enjoy and let me know what you think. 🙂
