Hey, Rob....I read a few recent reader reviews who didn't share our enthusiasm for the chocolate melting cake, in fact, they were downright disappointed and thought it didn't live up to the hype.

I can only presume that they have no taste buds.

I could eat three of these things a night.

sirobin171 August 10th, 2007 07:38 PM

All I know is that the melting cake is crack for me and I could eat it every day at each meal. :-)

They have almost the same thing (but better and bigger) at the olive Garden.

Believe me, I am an expert when it comes to a sweet tooth.

Really, I had no idea they have it at OG. I am going to try and go there tonight and try it. I will let you know :-)

Thank you so much for posting the pic! It looks delicious. I'm going on my first cruise next month and can't wait to satisfy my curiosity about this dessert! :D

sirobin171 August 10th, 2007 07:46 PM

It is my pleasure to bring you a little bit of chocolate crack happiness :-)

Your going on Carnival I assume? If not who?

sirobin 171,

Thanks for just ruining my pre-cruise diet! I have been trying not to think about Warm Chocolate Melting cake. How can someone not love it. I think I ordered it almost every night of the cruise in April.

I still have another 29 days before I can have it again. Okay I am going to be good and not pay attention to the recipe or go to Olive Garden.

Yum!

Yes, I'm sailing on the Ecstacy September 8th. I'm sure I'll be another chocolate crack addict. LOL Can't wait to get started on my addiction!

My Chocolate Melting Cake recipe was passed out by "Crazy George" the Maitre D' in the "Mardi Gras" dining room aboard "Inspiration". It appears to break down to almost the same thing that John Healds recipe. I guess if you're having a big party, you can use Georges. :roll:

I still appreciate the larger version of the recipe! :) I have both written down in my recipe book just in case I ever want to cater an event :D

I thought my melting cake was wayyyyy too runny on the Victory. My waiter asked if it was okay and I was honest and you know what???? Every day after that mine was much more cooked, still gooey in the very middle and perfect! It's like he told the chef to make it perfect just for me :)

Soooo yummy

Thoth August 14th, 2007 02:01 AM

Back in May, I ate that every night. It was THAT good...vanilla ice cream on top :D

For me, that's almost reason enough to book only Carnival for future cruises. (Look below and you'll see that I'm not kidding!) The melting cake is absolutely OUTSTANDING! 8)

Chocolate Melting Cake was a choice every night on the Pride. I tried it and became addicted as do most that dare to try this chocolate perfection. Gotta try it!

Me too. My list of cruises has become all Carnival. While the cake isn't the only reason, it plays a part in at least we know what to expect.

One word ... YUM-O

brettsmom August 19th, 2007 10:30 PM

It was awesome! The first night in the dining room i ordered it and they brough it out. It wasn't fully baked and came out like a warm pudding. I though that it was supposed to be like that and loved it!!!! The next night they brought it out the way it was supposed to be baked. I think I liked it not quite done better but no matter how long its baked its DELIC. :wink:

RobRen August 20th, 2007 03:57 PM

My husband is going through Chocolate Melting Cake withdrawal after having it every night of our cruise.

The poor man is suffering so much.

wakedreams August 20th, 2007 07:18 PM
