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!

SO good! Perfect - This was dessert for a fantastic Valentine's day feast. What a great ending. I made 1/2 a recipe, even measuring an egg white and using only 1 1/2 of them. I used a bit less sugar - and it was the best chocolate cake dessert I have ever had. My husband agrees. Can't wait to make it again (or should I say eat it again?)

These were a wonderful special occasion treat!! Easy to prepare... I used Trader Joe's 70% bittersweet chocolate bars...I found that the cooking time was less for my cakes. I have an electric oven and I think my ramekins were a bit smaller than 6 oz. Will definitely make this one again! Thanks!

This was a perfect Valentine's Day dessert. I baked the cakes in a jumbo muffin tin, which was perfect. I wanted to do these in a heart shape, but my heart muffin pan would have been too small -- I would have had to say I ate 3 cakes!

I was amazed at how easy these were! I quickly threw them together after dinner, and everybody loved them. I did have trouble getting them out of the custard cups I used, so they fell apart, but they still tasted wonderful. Next time I'd serve them with plain whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, the only ice cream we had on hand had chocolate in it, and it was just a little too much. Fabulous recipe, Martha!!!
