    The amount of time specified for the black chocolate cake was not even close to being accurate unless you like your cake soupy. I put mine in for a total of 20 minutes. I checked it 3 different times. So it was 8 minutes, 8 minutes and 4 minutes. Next time I will make it in a larger bowl but it will still take longer than 6 minutes.

    While this may not be a perfect conversion ratio this is what I used for conversion of the original receipe and it turned out great. As I posted earlier, I put mine in for 20 minutes and it turned out moist and decadent.

    Does moist and decadent mean it oozed in the center like a lava cake should? Or was it just a wonderfully moist cake?
