These cakes tasted very good. I followed the recipe exactly, although I used light butter and fat free evap milk. I found that I needed more caramels (about 4 more), as I didn't have enough left for the sauce at the end. I made 6 using a muffin tin, per the recipe, and the other six using ramekins which I greased and coated with sugar before filling. I baked the times stated in the upper half of the oven, then cooled the cakes about 5 minutes on wire racks. The lusciously dense cakes popped out easily onto dessert plates, which I then dusted with cocoa powder and drizzled with caramel sauce. YUM! Thanks for posting this :)
