Out & About: Hot Cakes

If you're in Ballard and happen to have a maddening craving for chocolate, the obvious spot to hit is Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery. I kid you not, chocoholic heaven. Everything is covered in that decadent delicious stuff. 

Several weeks ago we found ourselves in the area with a craving for some chocolate, walking through those doors and ordering three desserts (hello overkill) and feeling like we could definitely go without chocolate for the rest of our lives upon leaving. Of course, that didn't last long, but that's stating the obvious right?


Their classic desserts are organic, if that is any comfort to you. They've got everything from ice cream sandwiches to milkshakes and beyond. But they are most well known for their molten chocolate cake (go figure right?) If you aren't satisfied with all the decadence you can booze up your dessert. Surprisingly enough, they also have savory food, but I don't really care to get into that right now. I mean, chocolate. 


They've even got a selection of caramel sauces (fun shirts, twine, etc.) for sale, if you ever need to purchase a gift while scarfing some chocolate. 


Between the three of us we ordered a chocolate milkshake, a molten cake with Nutella (because I had to) and some sort of a la mode chocolate cookie. I focused on the molten cake and it was, in fact, extremely delicious.


Between their savory menu, overload of chocolate, adorable gingham wall/red details, and booze, I think everyone can find their happy place at Hot Cakes. Definitely wear your elastic waist sexy pants though.
