Sweet Melissa Sundays: Fallen Chocolate Souffle Cake

September 6, 2009 — 14 Comments

This week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe, Fallen Chocolate Souffle Cake was chosen by Sarah of Blue Ridge Baker. I think everyone was really excited to make this cake because it looks absolutely beautiful on the cover of The Sweet Melissa Baking Book. And it was beautiful in person, and quite easy to make. I just wish I had liked it more! Quite a few other SMS bakers found that their cakes baked a lot more quickly than the recipe indicated, but I baked mine for the full amount of time…and my cake seemed dry. Nevertheless, it was a joy to photograph. Quite dramatic!

I would love to try someone else’s results just to see if they were better! Does anyone want to overnight a piece to me? 😉

  1. Mine was nice and fluffy. I also baked mine in ramekins with 1/4 of the recipe. Yours looked very nice and fallen. It looks amazing with the ice cream.

  2. Your cake is gorgeous! I agree that it was kind of unimpressive flavor wise, but my kids absolutely loved the mini cakes and I’m always happy when that happens 🙂 Beautiful photos!

  3. Haha I would gladly have overnighted you one of my minis if we hadn’t eaten both of them. I thought the souffle was tasty, just not my thing. Yours look gorgeous – sorry it wasn’t a favorite!

  4. It’s late and I am looking at your blog thinking you always make me hungry. Great pictures. Pkg arrived safe and sound.Thanks so much. Off to raid the fridge,

  5. My family wasn’t over-enthusiastic about it so you probably wouldn’t want mine! I took mine out of the oven early and it STILL had an overly brown edge on one side.
