    Join Chris Morocco in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as he makes molten caramel cake. Everybody has heard of molten chocolate cake, so we thought we’d try to create a caramel version, with a toffee-ish tender cake encasing a runny dulce de leche center.

    1. Mr.P-Fox

      you should have weigh the caramels before freezing them

    2. Raw Bliss

      2:21 Let me go ahead and remove these dishes from a sink so I can take them to another sink and clean up. 😕

    5. MILLA M.

      No offense but Chris gives me auntie vibes

    6. yusuf banna

      I donno why Chris acts so nervous while doing his own recipe, but I must say, as delicious as the molten cake sounds and looks, the recipe developer, Chris, seems to be as gentle and humble a guy like his cake. He really enjoys feeding people, I've never seen in any recipe video before where the cook gives away all what's been made without himself tasting it. Is Chris on a diet or he doesn’t have a sweet tooth? Chris also seems a bit too cautious as if he has some kinda OCD.🙂

    7. cakeeamanteigados delicious

      Dolce? Isn't it dulce? Doce?

    8. Jonathan Francia

      Why are his fingers yellowed?

    13. rottingrobin

    14. H.P. Pixie

    15. Kathleen McCauley

    16. Kathleen McCauley

    18. mon van

    19. Roberto Mon


    20. Sisu Garcia

      Can I just say, Tommy's hair is magnificent that color, the swoopiness, the cut all of it!

    21. veritush

      Gaby making our country proud

    22. Inmydreamsimhunglikeabear 2

      BA is just insisting on making the Doug references this week

    23. 444musicmusic

      So... Volcán de dulce de leche

    24. Gabriel Martins

      What's up with the spanish monopoly on milk candy? Our doce de leite is just as good if not better. Yeah, probably better.

    25. salinaa97

      Looks great Chris! I'm not much of a caramel person but this looks amazing. Can't wait to try it out.

    26. Nizar Noor

      omg I want

    27. Andres Vidal

      Why is this dude finger tips always Orange ? Last video was understandable because of the carrots but now, I don’t know what the hell is on those finger tips !

    28. Sister See ya later

      Chris knew he couldn’t make chocolate lava cake because that chocolate is not tempered and he only stans tempered chocolate so now we have caramel

    29. Farah Rose

      This was so lovely and relaxing. Chris has this calming nature that makes me want to kick back and relax with a cup or coffee while I watch this. I might actually try and make this.

    30. Saule Siliunaite


    31. zoetherebel

      "Claire you gotta make your own peanut butter and you gotta temper the chocolate." *doesn't make his own caramel*

    32. Aruna

      Wow, that cake just flew off the counter, lol! Yum

    33. Sebastián González Ormazábal

      as a latin american I would love to see an episode starring gaby! She seems very sweet and I'm pretty sure she can make a bunch of latin american dishes.

    34. WeeItsNookies

      I'd rather eat that than bang a supermodel. So there's that..

    35. Thomas Barker

      Why is brad “contributing editor”? Wasn’t he “kitchen manager”?

    36. Karolina Enríquez Ortiz

      You can use "cajeta" too, maybe "arequipe" :)

    37. Elyze Laserna

      love u king ~

    38. Samuel Kim

      chris is the sheldon of bon apetit and i love it

    39. Dina Zikopoulos


    40. Madison Fisher

      8:01 Brad is described as a "budding ceramicist" and now we know why!!

    41. Mr. Awesomepants

      I knew a lady named Dulce, she was actually very sweet

    42. Paullette Tarvirian

      love u Morocco, can u plz ask Clair to make tossi bars plzzzzzzzz

    43. xiaooyyuu

      oh come on chris, claire has to make her own peanut butter but you can use dulce de leche from a jar? 😆😆😆

      1. xiaooyyuu

        kidding, but it was the first thought that came to mind when you said it 😆

    44. Brielia Reyes

      Omgggg For the Gourmet series , Claire should do gourmet Girlscout cookies. Especially the savannah smiles! Since this is the last year they will be sold.

    45. Ira Marie Azucena

      yay! more of Chris pleaseeeee 🙂

    46. J S

      Dulce de leche is the best ice cream on the planet.

    47. Alex T

      the way he pronounces stuff omg XD

    48. Mr. Meeseeks

      That lil breath & prayer before putting them in the oven was such a mood

    49. Emerald Dream

      Chris deserves MUCH more views and love! He's such a sweety tbh!

    50. Mathew Woolhouse

      Not the same day as the Carrot cake yet your fingers are orange... Hmmm......

    51. thedr00

      As nice as this is, folks should also try Sticky Toffee pudding: It will blow your mind!

    52. Johnee Villanueva

      Clearly this is not Claire`s show. So.... when are we going to temper those chocolates Chris?

    53. Carlos Brown Jr.

      I too am compelled by self-saucing puddings.

    54. roman campuzano

      First and foremost DOUG FUNNIE

    55. wanderlust

      You can't avoid the tempered chocolate forever, Chris

    56. Tom Kord

      Sooner or later, Brad will bust out a "cream rises to the top" joke in the Macho Man's voice.

    57. Natalie

      Why’re his fingers always yellow though???

    58. Irit Levi

      I need help I made it yesterday it was delicious but all the dulce de leche came out of the bottom it didn’t stay inside as in the video please help me where I have wrong thank you

    59. Maha Usef

      The thing is Claire show is about upgrading she has to make it better , so it makes sense if she had to do her own peanut butter, where Chris is making a normal recipe not upgraded or anything like that I personally love both of them 😘

    60. Benjamin Renteria

      As someone who doesn't like chocolate, this recipe makes me happy :)

    61. Mark James

      So many Doug references!

    62. Henry Caldwell

      why are his finger tips orange?

    63. August Mannertorn

      In European romance languages it’s pronounced with a tch instead of a c.

    64. Grace Charron

      Self saucing pudding...

    65. Josh Puckett

      why his fingers always orange?

    66. Charlie Vovor

      Funny how much lower he sets the bar when it comes down to his own recipes...

    67. Jack Hamson

      hes got such a nice temperament

    68. MageInWhite

      “It’s like your stuck in Doug Funnie’s world” “Yeah I dunno who that i-“ *Chris Makes Molten Caramel Cake*

    69. Robert Beauregard

      Chris, I love you man, but please can you work on your "like"s? In this video, you said "like" 47 times. Just rewatch your video from 4:03 to 4:17 and you said "like" 4 times. The "you know"s are almost as bad. I want to watch your videos because you give great advice, but they're almost unwatchable with your verbal ticks. I have them too, so let us soldier through them, like, together. :)

    70. Dan

      10:26 "The Cake has a beady little Eye staring back at me." OMFG "Focus, stay on Target" geekbuttfreak. Chris is actually the Self-Saucing Pudding. I like the cake, but the comment at 10.26 went South with too much innuendo.

    71. Rebecca G.

      Why did you cut the cake with a spatula

    72. Lujan C

      gabby my argentinean heart gets so warm whenever you appear

    73. Sierra Boone

      more videos of Jesse eating things please

    74. unwild

      why does the kitchen feel so empty these days?

    75. genuwine21

      I now need a gourmet slim jim episode with a macho man randy savage impression included.

    76. Rebecca Rich

      This looks really good

    77. JLAShazam

      That looks soooooooooooo good!!

    78. London1869

      Money shot 10:37 I might do this but serve the sauce on the side, microwaved, so I can take the cakes somewhere less immediate.

    79. London1869

      More love for the spoon guy!

    80. Matthew B

      You think you know what to expect with Chris, and then he asks for a Macho Man impression. And Brad doesn't come through? FOR SHAME!

    81. Luka

      what's with the yellow fingers?

    82. Jody Newell

      Would've been hilarious to end the video with Brad's "ohhhh yeaaaah..." in Randy Savage voice.

    83. Touching The Rainbow

      BA guys butchering foreign words is my kink. I also still take bets when and in which episode that mixers gear will finally break completely.

    84. Abbey Bishop

      when he talked about built in sauces being compelling, i felt that. big mood.

    85. Foncé Boursain

      "Hey hey hey! It's a family show, dude!" Love this 😂

    86. julianoyugibrito

      A easy and nice doulce de leiche recepi is put a can of condensed milk in a pressure pan and cooking. 30 minutes

    87. Shaun Gunning

      "now we just leave it alone for 30min and it'll be fine" wise words even outside of the kitchen

    88. Aboli

      I would love to see one of the BA staff interpreting the reverse magic cake where the frosting and cake switch places in the oven!

    89. Augustine Jesmer

      This video is entirely too long

    90. Brian Genthner

      Claire would have made her own caramel. Poser

    91. Real Salica

      I might try it for my husband's Birthday ^_^ Wish me luck !

    92. Harlequin Ely

      Blessed Chris

    93. debdianne

      I'm hungry 😭

    94. Philip DiCicco


    95. Alex Smiga

      11:22 Chis:*cuts cake* Gaby: *purrs in Argentinian accent*

    96. Nina

      The audio isn't very good. It didn't make it more pleasant to watch sadly, turned it off after a minute or so...

    97. Okay Martini

      yo when's gabby gonna get her own show

    98. David Zafra

      nice mug cakes! 👍

    99. Ivey Luo

    100. Catalina Reveco
