As many of you know, the recipe is given out on the Behind the Fun tour, in addition to being readily available online. I used 8oz ramekins for this attempt and it came out good. The time given in the recipe wasn't that exact, and I think that they could have gone a little longer and still been molten. I also have no idea how the chefs manage to get them so perfect in the cup, instead of rising unevenly like mine.

It was still tasty, and here are some pics!

You can try rotating your pan, sometimes that helps. (As someone with a super cheap oven in my rental I just get over the fact that many things never bake quite perfect because the heat is far from even.)

No matter how they look I bet they still tasted great!

I wonder if they are using a water bath to heat everything evenly. This is common with creme brulee and cheesecake...makes sense...
