Recipe and text by Elizabeth Bard


If you have a chocoholic in your life, be prepared to be worshipped. Perfect for dessert for two, this recipe also makes you look a teensy bit like a culinary genius in front of guests. Make the batter in advance, and pop the cakes into the oven right after dinner.


As for accompaniments, resist the temptation to go overboard: forget the caramel sauce and raspberry coulis. A dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream or a golf-ball size scoop of vanilla ice cream is all that’s required.


This is a perfect Valentine's Day dessert!
