I had to do a few substitutions. Instead of the nonstick spray with flour, I greased and floured it myself. I could not find pastry flour at the store so I looked online and used half all purpose flour and half cake flour which was supposed to be a fairly good option. My cakes did not look anything like the picture. I couldn't get them out of the ramekins and they were undercooked they looked absolutely awful! Fortunately, the taste made up for that! Extremely rich and chocolatey.I would like to try it again following the recipe exactly to see if I can master it. I appreciate the recommendations of others. I will add that you do need to cover them with plastic wrap before putting them in the refrigerator. Mine became a little crusty. They are absolutely delicious though!
This is a good recipe and has great flavor. However be careful, it is a bit tricky to get the cakes out of the ramekins. First, buy the spray with the flour! This is one time when I am willing to conceed, science and technology have a leg up over grandma when it comes to greasing and flouring pans. Second, if you leave them in the fridge for longer than an hour increase the time sitting at room temp. I did 15 min and then 13 min cooking. This was not enough to get them cooked. Had to put them back in the oven for about 7 extra minutes. Finally, let sit for 5 min after baking before removing from ramekin
Made these for our dinner group and they received rave reviews. This is to die for! Left them in the refrigerator all day and after the 15 minutes at room temp wait, popped them in the oven. They didn't all come out of the ramekins perfectly but it was easy to disguise that with the powdered sugar. Impressive presentation. Fairly easy to make.
