Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery

Peanut butter molten cake with... Peanut butter molten cake with all the fixings + butterbeer in the glass.
I think I found my new favorite dessert place in Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery. I went two days in a row because the food was so delicious. Hot Cakes is perfect for rainy days in Seattle. A warm, gooey meal and rustic ambiance is soothing. The name alone, Hot Cakes, reminds me of cozy winter mornings in front of a fireplace or pancake breakfasts at my grandma's house. Everything on the menu is made to order from local and minimally-processed ingredients. That means the food is as fresh and natural as possible. I ordered the peanut butter and chocolate molten cake which uses my favorite Seattle chocolate, Theo's chocolate, and I couldn't stop gushing over how decadent and rich the flavors turned out. I also appreciated the attention to detail and variety of accompaniments served with the cake such as peanut butter fudge bites, ice cream, chocolate sauce, and roasted nuts. I also ordered the Harry Potter-inspired butterbeer, which was just as rich as my cake and had a delightful buttery flavor I've never tasted in a drink before. I ordered another butterbeer on the second day because it was that good. My friends ordered espresso, chocolate milkshakes, and bread pudding from which I sampled. All were delicious! Before leaving, I ordered cookies and a slice of chocolate whiskey cake to go from the display case to see if the pre-made items tasted as amazing as the made-to-order menu. The whiskey cake blew my mind with its smoky and chocolate-y richness and fluffy chocolate buttercream frosting. I've never considered a smoky flavor in dessert before, but I am happy to have discovered the combination.

In addition to a range of classic American desserts, Hot Cakes also makes grilled cheese sandwiches and egg breakfast sandwiches. They also have something called a grilled chocolate sandwich that piqued my interest. Oh, and they have alcoholic shakes and desserts as well. Basically, the entire menu sounds amazing and it makes me want to go back!

They have a vegan menu, too, which means everyone can enjoy.

Hot Cakes sells chocolates, sauces, and at-home baking kits so you can make sweets at home. The most interesting of their items is the cold-smoked bag of chocolate chips. I imagine they would go great with s'mores or even basic chocolate chip or hot chocolate recipes.

I spent too much money and ate too many calories, but I do not regret my choices one bit. That means this place is pretty great.
