Tortino al Cioccolato Caldo su Creme Anglaise

I have to admit I didn't think that mangoes would compliment the chocolate lava cake. The recipe was from "thefatkidinside" himself, Erwan Heussaff -- Hahahaha wish we were that close but I am just a mere follower of his wordpress blog. Did a few tweaks here and there on the ingredients-- sans the peppered chocolate (just plain dark chocolate for Ava) and the raspberries. My little girl kept on calling it Ava's lava; a pretty catchy name. I exponentially made his recipe to cater to a number of people in my family. They all liked it! esp. that oozing bittersweet chocolate inside. The yellowish cream is Anglaise, that tastes like melted custard with a hint of cashew flavor.This by the ways is served while hot! An alternate compliment to the cake is vanilla ice cream drizzled with melted dark chocolate.

So, is there a proper way to eat this stuff??? Hell yeah! Here is where the merriment of flavors happen... 
Fork the tortino al cioccolato caldo, scrape a bit of the creme anglaise and leave a bit of room for the mango and eat that in one bite- delish!

I made this on the 4th of July not because I wanted to celebrate Independence day together with the American's but it calls for a far more special celebration; it's my late grandmother's birthday.
Happy Birthday Lola Bebe!
