Everyone loves these cakes! They are the bomb for a chocolate lover. Don't overbake them! It's very easy to prepare the batter a day ahead of time when having guests over. Then just pop the cakes in the oven a half an hour before you plan to serve them.

These moist, sinfully rich chocolate cakes are, well, awesome. I think there was a typo when Kathleen said a serving was 1/2 the cake. There's no way I could eat just a half of these delicious dolls! They make for a wonderful presentation - whether it be a casual night in or a formal party menu. Enjoy! The Test Kitchen
