    9 minutes was perfect. DO use a ramekin. Don’t make the mistake of using a muffin me.

    Amazing!! I used a six oz ramekin. A few tips - use baking spray instead of cooking spray, fill a little more than half way as they rise. I did 15 minutes and let cool for 5.

    This was super rich for me..very tasty but a bit too rich. I didnt get the lava effect either, so I stuck some dark chocolate wafers into the center to melt and create the effect.

    They tasted ok, but no “lava” came out. Kind of disappointed:(

    They taste great, but needed to cook for an additional 4-5 minutes due to my oven.

    Easy to make and came out of ramekins easily. Would try cooking 30 seconds to a minute less next time for more molten center.

    The center didn’t quite flow out like at a restaurant but it was pretty cool that it was soft in the middle. I did have to go around the edge of the ramekin with a knife so that it would come out. My ramekins were small so the recipe was enough for 3 servings. I thought the chocolate was just right. This was pretty easy to make so I would probably make it again when I wanted a small chocolate fix.
