    Incredible recipe!! Absolutely delicious! All plates scraped clean! Helpful hint - made mixture night before, froze in 12 smaller moulds and placed straight into oven from freezer @ 180C for 10 mins! Perfect!!  -  03 Sep 2012


    Love, Love, Love! this chocolate Lava cake. Quick and easy to make. Only makes 4 in my ramekins and have to cook for 91/2 mins. Already made this 3 times. My chocolate monster daughter is in heaven! Followed suggestion to cool before cooking. Just left in fridge for between 20mins- 24hrs. Pop in oven 10mins before serving.  -  15 Nov 2012
