Tablemate on our recent Valor cruise really loved the Chocolate Melting Cake. We asked the Maitre d' and he provided them with the recipe which was for 600 (I think) orders. Probably the same one that Carnival sent to marieinsouthfla.
It would be helpful if marieinsouthfla would post the yield of the recipe she posted. A yield of 600 would result in a serving size somewhere around 200 grams (about 7 oz) which seems on the largish size to me.
Based on the original reipe having a yield of 600, scaled for 6 servings its[indent]
360 gm black (dark?) chcolate 12.8 oz
360 gm - butter (unsalted?) - 12.8 oz
8 ea - eggs - 8 ea
230 gm - sugar (granulated white?) - 8 oz
140 gm - flour (white all purpose?) - 4.8 oz
I wonder though if the recipe doesn't yield 800. This would certainly make scaling much simpler, at least using metric measures. Single portion would then be:
50 gm black chocolate 1.6 oz
50 gm - butter - 1.6 oz
1 ea - egg - 1 ea
30 gm - sugar - 1 oz
20 gm - flour - 0.7 oz
Which leads to a portion size somewhere around 165 - 175 gm, about 6 oz.
Unless someone has tried it and can save me by posting their recipe I'm just going to have to suffer and try making both reipes.
