Very good. I have made a similar recipe before, and this is just as good. Lots of yummy fudge sauce on the bottom. Don't make the same mistake I did... I only had an 8" pan, and it overflowed...

Good chocolate flavor. However, it was way too sweet and had too much chocolate "sauce." Next time I make it, and I plan to try it again, I will cut back on the sugar mixture that is sprinkled...

This recipe is taste nice especially the liquid chocolate but the only thing that made me rate it 4 is because it too sweet. The sugar should be cut into 1/2 of the recipe.

I made this for my husband for a Father's Day dessert. It was incredible and reminded us of a restaurant "lava cake". Thanks, this one will be made again and again.

OMG this cake was AMAZING. I did use freshly brewed coffee instead of water and added a dash of cayenne to bring out the chocolate. My children are the pickiest eaters on the planet. They cle...

I added grilled banana's and fresh strawberry sauce to make it a "banana split" pudding cake. Spoon this over vanilla icecream if you want to totally blow the diet! So incredible, tastes like ...

The only reason this is getting a four is because the pudding part wasn't exactly what I was expecting (perhaps not as "lava cake" fudgey in texture as I was hoping). It was still extremely deli...
