I saw a similiar recipe being made on Masterchef Australia and found this recipe. I agree with the previous reviewer that the result after 12 min is too sloppy. I cooked mine for a further 3 minutes at 160 deg, but I think a warmer oven for 12 min should be perfect. The taste is decadent.

Great taste but the temperature definitely needs to be 180 deg C otherwise the result is too soft and collapses.
