Molten Chocolate Cakes

Mom and bf both expressed interest in eating molten chocolate cakes so I really wanna try this recipe out! After watching a couple of Nigella Lawson's videos and reading up her recipes, I have to conclude that she's not exactly the most health conscious cook around, but her recipes are so easy to make.

...After making this recipe and spooning a mouthful of the chocolate cake into my mouth, I know where she got her awesome breasts from. HAHAAH! I once read a random comment online that she has to maintain her humongous assets by adding extra fat and sugar into her recipes. And I have to agree -_-

The chocolate is so sinfully rich. I've reduced some sugar from the recipe, knowing her style, but 70% cocoa chocolate is too dense for my family's tastebuds. Think I'll opt for milk chocolate the next time.
