This recipe goes together so quickly and it feels special. I used cognac in place of the port, so mine came out a little boozy. I loved it, but it was not a universally popular feature. In future, I'd try to plan ahead and use the port. It's a very rich cake, a little goes a long way.
Fabulous. Just as easy as indicated and seriously addictive. I used bourbon instead of tawny port and it was wonderful. Also good cold, if you are too lazy to heat up leftovers. I also made it ahead and let it rest in the ramekins until time to cook.
Wow! So easy and so delicious! I had port, but decided to go with Tia Maria instead - Fab! I did infact do the batter up ahead of time put it in the ramikins and left it out while I cooked supper. So great this way! I also used strawberries ( better priced!) Definately in my favorites!
Perfect! I used everything as written including Tawny Port, except I used 70% chocolate. I only had 6oz Emile Henry ramekins so I divided the batter between 4 of those and cooked it for 20 minutes. It is sooooo rich and yummy, but don't eat this dessert standing up, it will buckle your knees! The raspberries were a great addition and are always a perfect match with dark chocolate. FYI, I cooked it in a Breville Smart Oven toaster oven.
Delicious dessert and so easy. I didn't have bourbon so I omitted it and these were perfect without.
I'd love to know if you can make the batter for these ahead of time and bake them just prior to serving?
wonderful! Didn't have port, used Baileys instead, served with vanilla ice cream & raspberry sauce
This was so full of flavor. Best of all I only had to clean the one sausepan when I was done. I used round 4-oz. ramekins whiched worked fine. I used Ruby Port, from a grocery store, because it was cheaper, it worked great. This was so fast to make, it took longer to all the ingredients on the counter than to make it. This is perfect for company, I highly recommend trying this dessert.
Wonderful and super easy. I used 8 oz of chocolate rather than 7 oz. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly as written. It is VERY rich. I recommend serving with whipped cream.
