Almond Chocolate Cakes Recipe

I serve this variation of chocolate cake often and it is always a hit. It is almost like a steamed pudding, served warm and topped with whipped cream or ice cream. The chocolate-praline flavor comes through nicely.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1. Combine the brown sugar, butter and cream; divide between two greased 10-oz. ramekins or custard cups. Sprinkle with almonds.
