    I make this gluten free using 1 to 1 flour and dairy free using coconut oil or Melt brand "butter". Allergen free dark chocolate. Always turns out and delicious.

    I have made this numerous times and have always put it together right before I baked it. Now I put it together in the morning bring it to room temp before I bake it and it comes out perfect - much easier for me this way - thank you

    It is 400 degree Celsius or farenhite?

      sonykajaliclou, American recipes virutally always use Fahrenheit; if you see a cooking temperature between 300 degrees and 450 degrees, it's a pretty safe bet that the temperature is in degrees F. When in doubt, use a Celsius-Fahrenheit converter (you can find one online); in this case, 400 degrees C would be 752 degrees F, which can't be right, because the maximum temperature on most home ovens is 500 to 550 degrees F (plus, the cake would be a hockey puck at 750 degrees F).

    Easy and nice chocolate taste. Baked for 10 minutes and turned out soft in the center though fairly cakey. Will make this again - maybe with orange zest too.

    This was the most delicious molten cake, and so simple! I had been craving to make it homemade since I had it at a restaurant a few months ago, and this recipe surpasses my expectations! I served it with ice cream instead of whipped cream. Three thumbs up!!

    I have made these with gluten free flour and soy butter substitute for celiac and dairy allergy accommodations and it still comes out great! In the original Everyday Food it offers the suggestion to make ahead and keep in fridge and add a minute or two to the cooking - have left in friend's fridge as a welcome home treat with directions - great gift with many happy returns
