    Just Call Me Martha's Note:

    Oh So Good! These little cakes are so simple to make and your guests with think you spent ages on them. Good quality chocolate is key here. If you don't have souffle dishes or custard dishes, you could use muffin tins, but it would make more little cakes (then you could have TWO each!). Use heart shaped moulds for Valentine's Day and top with whipped cream and raspberry coulis. Mmmmm. Enjoy!

      This was soooo good, it gave me goosebumps! I served it with whipped cream and the cakes slipped right out of the custard cups onto serving plates. The timing was perfect in my oven. For the leftovers, 15 seconds in the microwave reheated each cake without baking it.

      We loved these! I had my first molten cake in Hawaii for my birthday and thought it must be so difficult to make. When I saw how easy this recipe looked, I decided to try it for our "Easy and Romantic" menu and it was wonderful! 7 minutes baking time was perfect. I used heart-shaped ramekins, added some whipped cream on top and a few fresh raspberries and wow! It's nice to be able to make a dessert that isn't a ton of work, so you can enjoy your guest(s)! Too bad my kids didn't get to try these, but I will be making them soon again!
