Just made this cake with my daughter and it turned out really well. Great to make with kids. I used a bit less castor sugar (150g) and next time will use less again as I don't think you need quite as much as the recipe calls for. I cooked it for about 40mins and it turned out perfectly sticky in the middle. Also forgot to add the vanilla but didn't matter at all.

Very easy recipe. Lovely gooey tasting cake.

really gooey, probably a bit too sweet for me but goes down really well with everyone when I make them. Could easily reduce the sugar by a third, especially when using milk chocolate.

simple to make - but when they were done - it was awful taking them out of the pan as it just broke :( I may also cut down the sugar a little next time.

I made these for a dinner party and they were fab. Everyone raved about them. Thoroughly recommend.

Made this today and loved it. Easy to make, baked it for 30 minutes and it had the right amount of squidgy-ness in the middle, perfect.
