“From our honeymoon cruise with Carnival. This chocolate pudding-centered cake was a staple on the menu in 2007, but after finding the recipe online, we can make it anytime we want. My husband and I are health conscious and this cake definitely isn't, but enjoying it about once a year just takes us back... and some things are just good for the soul. As a side note, varying times and temperatures varies in turn the center of the cake, which can be pudding-like, fudge thick or, my personal preference, molten sauce.”
