    These fancy mini gooey chocolate cakes are perfect for a chocolate fix. A good-quality plain chocolate is necessary for the success of these cakes. Watch this recipe being made in Allrecipes Molten Chocolate Cake Video.

    This was given to me by a friend about 25 years ago. I have been making it ever since for family and friends. It is delicious with all sorts of foods, from cold meats to barbecues. It is best made with ripe outdoor tomatoes as they have more flavour and colour. Always bottle in clean sterilised jars with non-metallic lids.
