I've made these twice now and they're really nice. I don't bother putting the salt or bicarbonate of soda in the mixture. I agree that the mixture is very runny but works. The first time I made them in muffin cases and they made 15. They really rise in the oven so only fill 2/3 full in the case. The second time I halved all the ingredients to make less cakes and again they are perfect. I made chocolate buttercream icing the first time but it was too much chocolate so instead have vanilla buttercream now. Yummy! I would recommend to anyone who wants easy to make cakes. - 21 Oct 2011
I loved this recipe! At first i wasn't sure they were going to turn out right because the mixture was really runny, but it was good that the mixture was, because the cakes turned out fluffy but also like fudge cakes. I'm going to bookmark this recipe! Also i added the 300g sugar, i thought if your going to treat yourself to a cake, then why not go all out! P.s muffin tins only make 12 - 18 Sep 2011
Something else. I put a chunk of chocolate into the middle using the end of a teaspoon to prize them open when just taken from the oven. May try with white chocolate next time! - 18 Apr 2010
