Lona, I think your thinking or heard of two different desserts.
One is a souffle" and one is choc. molten cake( with no cake flour), the inside stays liquid and the outside gets baked. As far as I know all souffle's get baked all the way through.

Chef Spike is right. There are a million recipies out there for these types of desserts.

A traditional souffle has a very moist center once it is baked. But, souffles are a bit different than what you are looking for, which I think is a flourless cake.

Some people prepare a flourless type cake, then drop a ball of frozen ganache in the center before baking. So, when the cake is cut into, the ganache has melted and turned into a sauce after it has been baked.

The type we used to make we would freeze the batter in a small mold, then bake in a hot convection oven. The outside of the cake would puff up like a souffle, but the center would remain very soft and runny.

Try searching for "liquid center chocolate cake," and I'm sure you will find a recipe that will work for you.

Good luck.
