Warm Melting Chocolate Cake #Recipe #FoodieFriday




Have any of our readers ever been on a cruise? We haven't-yet-but four of use are making plans to be on the Singing at Sea Cruise in February, 2016. This is, from what we've heard, an amazing cruise, featuring some of the best in Southern Gospel music, and daily devotions with some great preachers. This particular cruise visits Cozumel and Grand Cayman, so we're thrilled about (hopefully!) being on it next year! Even though we haven't personally been on the cruise though, we've heard a lot about it from our friends who are among the featured artists on the cruise. One of the things they mention most is the food, and among that, we've heard a lot of rave reviews about Carnival Cruise Line's famous Melting Chocolate Cake. So of course, being a baker who loves to try new recipes, we hunted online and found a recipe from Carnival so we could make these cakes at home! Let me tell you, they are every bit as good as they were reported to be! So, whether you've been on a cruise and want to taste those cakes again, or if you've never been, but love all things chocolate, here's your chance!

Carnival Cruise Line's Chocolate Melting Cake

Ingredients:
3/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
3/4 cup Butter
4 Eggs at room temperature
3/4 cup Sugar
1/8 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Flour
Powdered Sugar (optional)



Instructions:
Preheat oven to 375. Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan, set aside to cool (about 10 minutes). In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and sugar. Add vanilla and flour, whisk until well mixed. Pour egg mixture into saucepan with cooled chocolate; stir. Grease 4 ramekins (7 oz size works best), and fill 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Watch cakes carefully during the last few minutes of baking; they should be baked on top (like a regular cake) but the middle should be a gooey pudding-consistency. Dust with powdered sugar if desired, and serve immediately with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. (If you happen to have leftovers, you can cover and refrigerate, then reheat in the microwave. They're best served right out of the oven though!)


The end!

Yummm - I'm saving this recipe. Carnival's warm chocolate melting cake is the best - but you have to order it with 2 scoops of ice cream, the little scoop they serve it with isn't enough!
