  10. NOTES:

  11. LOVED this. Added a tsp. of cinnamon and it added that extra flavor found in molten cakes at restaurants. Have made again and again with sweet success each time!

  12. This couldn't have been easier and they came out perfect. I only made two and just divided the recipe in half and baked for 10 mins. Definitely making again!

  13. Excellent and very easy to make. I added a tsp of instant coffee to the batter to make a more grown up dessert. This is a new addition to our menu.
