That is true, Rick. But then many recipes cannot be duplicated in home kitchens with much success. Not sure about this one. It seems pretty simple.
And now for my dark secret...I guess I might be risking excommunication from the forum but I really am not impressed by the melting chocolate cake. I am not a major dessert nut anyway and am happy with just some ice cream, cheesecake, or pie.
My wife is a VERY GOOD COOK. She has never been able to make melting chocolate cake as good as they do onboard...It is not just me, she will agree also.
Dave Ice Cream is one of my favorites also. think I will go grab a bowl.
I just used the recipe tonight. To me, it tasted similar to the cake we've had on cruises, but not quiet the same. The most difficult part was taking the cake out of the oven at precisely the right time. My husband ate it without complaint, so it must have tasted okay or he was scared to comment.
