I visited the Formalties shop aboard Carnival Legend hoping the cookbook they sold had the Warm Chocolate Melting cake...it didn't, but the girl that worked in the shop knew I was looking for sometime specific and when I told her I wanted the recipe she handed me a photocopy that contained this recipe:

Melting Chocolate Cake
12.5 oz Dark Chocolate
12.5 oz butter
10 eggs (room temperature!!!)
10oz granulated sugar
6oz flour (the copy says H&R flour. I am not sure what this means)

Method:
Melt the chocolate and butter
Mix the eggs and sugar and whisk for a few minutes, add the flour
Add the egg mix to the melted chocolate and mix
Pour the mix in a greased mold
Bake in a preheated 200 degee celcius oven (which is 392 fahrenheit) for 14 minutes.
Dust with powered sugar and serve with vanilla ice cream

Enjoy

I'm going to try to bake the last two (posted right above this) and see which one is closest. If neither are, I'll go further back. We have 25 people coming to Thanksgiving at our house this year, so I'd love to make this for dessert.

I'll let you know which (if any) is closest to the real thing after I play around a little bit bit with them (:

The baking time can be adjusted depending on how much cake:liquid ratio you like.

I promise this is worth the effort!

1 1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (8 ounces)
1 stick salted butter (8 ounces)
1 stick unsalted butter (8 ounces)
5 eggs (room temperature)
5/8 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
powdered sugar to taste

Melt chocolate and butter over low heat. In a bowl, mix together eggs and sugar and then add flour. Slowly wisk this into the chocolate mixture. Pour into greased (Pam) 4 ounce ramekins. Bake at 400 degrees for 11 minutes (my oven runs hot so adjust the time -especially if you like it cakier).
Dust with powdered sugar.

This is a very forgiving recipe. I have made it with whole wheat flour (trying to make it healthier LOL!) and with only four eggs (ran out). I also don't bother buying unsalted butter since I don't use it for anything else and we can't tell the difference anyways.

Enjoy!

Thanks so much for the recipe! I've got to try it

Default This is what I found

8 ounces semisweet chocolate
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
7 eggs, divided use
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup flour
Vanilla ice cream, for serving
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt chocolate and butter; cool 10 minutes.
In separate bowl, mix 4 eggs with sugar. Whisk. Add flour and whisk. Add remaining 3 eggs. Add egg mixture to chocolate mixture. Pour in individual baking cups or ramekins.
Bake until just done, about 15-20 minutes (interior will be melting, not set).
Serve with vanilla ice cream.

5 oz. sugar (5/8 Cup)
3 oz. flour (2/3 Cup)

Pour into greased mold. (Carnival serves it in ramekins.) Bake at 400 F for 12-14 minutes.

The recipe Carnival sent me did not include the yield for their "jumbo" recipe. (As one poster above wondered.) I am guessing (hope it works, please don't flame me if it doesn't) that the above would yield about 8 ramekins, give or take a couple either way. I would also guess that you would fill each ramekin maybe 2/3 full with the batter???

Happy Baking, and the first one to try it, post and let us know how it is!

P.S. It's not in the recipe, but on our cruise, Carnival topped the cake with powdered sugar, and served vanilla ice cream on the side.
I found that this recipe worked well for me and tasted just like Carnival's cake. The key is to refrigerate the batter overnight and then scoop it into ramekins and bake. This will give the cake its dense texture on the edges just like the real cake. If you bake without first refrigerating the batter, the cake will turn out spongy on the edges.

I have found that the above recipe has too much sugar and flour to produce the desired result and that would make it more spongy around the edges. I use 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1/4 cup less two tablespoons of flour.

The texture is affected more than anything else I have tried by how long you beat the mixture once all the ingredients are assembled. There is no leavening agent in the cake, so the cook must beat it very vigorously and long to get enough air into the mixture to make it rise.

I cook this by observation. It usually requires between 9 1/2 minutes and 11 3/4 minutes depending on the oven and the humidity.

TIP: If you make it and it comes out too stiff, microwaving it for about 30-45 seconds per serving will make it more liquid.

I think I've just baked the perfect warm chocolate melting cake. The key is to first refrigerate the batter overnight. Then, bake it at 390 degrees for 10 minutes. Then I broil at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Broiling will cook the top solid while leaving the inside fudgy.

CARNIVAL'S FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE

Unsweetened cocoa powder
2 (8-oz.) packages semisweet chocolate squares, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup butter - do not use margarine
5 large eggs, separated
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar

Grease a 9-inch springform pan, and dust with unsweetened cocoa powder.

Melt chopped chocolate and butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth.

Whisk together egg yolks and vanilla in a large bowl. Gradually stir in warm chocolate mixture, whisking until well blended.

Beat egg whites at high speed with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating until sugar dissolves and stiff peaks form. Fold one-third beaten egg white mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture just until blended. Spoon batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly.

Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. (Do not overbake!) Let stand in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes before removing sides of pan
this not the right one
