I have only eaten this on cruises before and of course thought it was way too difficult to make. SO NOT TRUE. This was so easy and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly except greased, buttered and dusted ramekins with a cocoa/sugar mix. Baked for 12 minutes. The cakes slid right out. The next time I will skip the whipped cream and just sprinkle wiht powedered sugar. I impressed myself. My husband is thrilled with the money he will save taking us on cruises to have this dessert.LOL. Thanks so much.
This recipe is AWESOME! I always order this dessert if I see it on a restaurant menu. I made 12 cupcake sized cakes instead of 4 since they are so rich. Satisfies the chocolate craving!
I think the bake time is way too long and the temp is too high. I made these twice, the first time I baked them 2 mins less than suggested and the middles didn't ooze and the edges were almost burnt. I did it again with the oven decreased to 350 and for 9mins. Better but still not quite. I am looking for something like Morton's Godiva chocolate cake. Maybe I will try again with some liqour added.
