Loved this! Followed the recipe apart from only adding 1tsp baking powder as suggested in previous comments. Will definitely be making this again

This recipe doesn’t work. I tried making it and it cooked around the outside but just turned to a disgusting goo in the inside due to no fault of my own. It is a waste of money & ingredients and I will NOT be making it again. Thanks a lot!

Delicious! Made it for a girls night with one third milk chocolate, one third white chocolate and one third crunchie bars and it was so good we ate it with spoons straight from the tin while it was still hot! I followed the advice below and only used one tsp of baking powder and it came out perfectly.

Love this recipe. I've made it several times. I now only use one teaspoon of baking powder. Today I've made it using Reese's pieces instead of the chocolate.

I made this and the family loved it. My 12 year daughter then choose to make it herself as she enjoyed it so much. Very successful. Big smiles all round.

This is just ok, I don't think it needs 2tsp of baking powder, I could taste it and it's not nice, I think it would taste better without the baking powder. I made two of these, one with white and milk chocolate and the other with mini marshmallows and milk chocolate. Others said they were delicious but I personally don't like tasting the baking powder.

FIVE STARS - I have made this recipe twice already and I LOVE IT! It is equally delicious hot or cold and the combination with ice cream is just divine. The overall recipe is quick to make and you don't need a huge list of ingredients; you are likely to have them in your cupboard. A total hit with the whole family! Thank you so much Lisa for sharing this recipe, I am very grateful !

Can this be made in advance and re heated please?

Thanks for your question. Yes, you could reheat this briefly in the microwave although you will need to remove it from the tin to do so. Alternatively you can also serve it at room temperature.

If you don't fold in the dry ingredients whay effect does this have on the cake?

Thanks for your question. You fold in the dry ingredients to avoid knocking air out of the mixture and also overbeating flour can make the cake denser.

Is it supposed to be wobbly when you take it out of the oven?

Thanks for your question. It might still feel a little soft in the middle but not wobbly as such.

How long will this keep for without going bad?
