Chocolate Melting Cake

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Peach Brandy Cottage

We discovered this dessert on Carnival Cruise lines, but the measurements were in odd sizes. We revised this to work with standard purchase sizes, AND changed from fresh eggs to pasteurized eggs, since the recipe does not fully cook the eggs in the center of the dessert. If you follow the directions exactly, this dessert is as easy as it is delciious. Note that it can be made ahead and held in the refrigerator until you are ready to finish and serve it, so it's perfect for entertaining.

I don't usually eat dessert but had to have a taste and then proceeded to eat the whole serving! It is wonderful.
