It's the last day of 2013, and I've got no bread for breakfast. And there's only little milk left for lil' fella's oatmeal. So I just made this (!!) for breakfast. Hahaa! What a brekkie! Oh well, it's a good way to end 2013, in style, indulging :p
This is actually a simple chocolate lava cake recipe by Martha Stewart. We've baked it a few times (with my baking buddies). But somehow, we either get it or not each time. It's the baking temp. and time. I keep on forgetting that I need to bake it at 200deg C (even in a fan-forced oven) at 9-10minutes!! I finally got it right this time! Just the way I want it, the way the chocolate oozes out.. Yummm!!
