Recipe by La Gourmande
From our honeymoon cruise with Carnival. This chocolate pudding-centered cake was a staple on the menu in 2007, but after finding the recipe online, we can make it anytime we want. My husband and I are health conscious and this cake definitely isn't, but enjoying it about once a year just takes us back... and some things are just good for the soul. As a side note, varying times and temperatures varies in turn the center of the cake, which can be pudding-like, fudge thick or, my personal preference, molten sauce.

I love Carnival's chocolate melting cake. I had only ever seen this recipe in quantities to feed 300. Thank you so much for reducing it down to one serving. I was looking for an individual sized cake to give to someone for their birthday, and this was perfect for that.
