Carnival Cruise Line’s FAMOUS Warm Chocolate Melting Cake Recipe

Every now and again I have the pleasure of tasting something that makes my toes curl. It’s always a treat when it happens and while I’d like to recreate every dish in my kitchen, unfortunately that rarely happens. Somehow even when I follow the recipe things still don’t turn out quite the same. Today I spent time in my kitchen trying to recreate Carnival Cruise Line’s Warm Chocolate Melting Cake and the results were STUNNING! By that I mean a toe-curling bonanza.

This recipe is bang on, it’s straight-forward and the end result is delicious. I am proud to have received it from Chef Panda on Carnival Cruise Line’s Liberty Ship when I had the chance to attend his Chef’s Table experience and he gave permission for me to share it! I’ll be writing all about that experience later this week but suffice it to say it’s probably one of my favourite dinners I’ve ever had. Meanwhile I leave you with this delicious dessert recipe which I am making again tonight for our dinner guests…because 2 in one day is just fine right?

    1. How did the recipe turn out for you? Want to know if is suppose to be served warm…if so, that means you must bake it right b4 you serve it? also, how many ramekins did it make? Thank you!

  1. This looks like a recipe I use to make but somehow lost over the years, will have to try it out again!

  2. We had friends over for dinner and I made this for dessert. It was amazing! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    1. Just got back off Carnival Triumph. This was by far my granddaughter’s favorite dessert. She had one every night of the cruise. So glad to get this recipe…already sent it to her!

  3. Hi! I LOVED Carnival’s cakes. That was my fav part of the cruise. :) Can you please give me the measurements in cups please? I know there is a diff in weight ozs and volume ozs. THANKS!!

  4. My oven goes in 5 min increments so I would have to do 385 or 395. Which would be better and add or subtract any minutes in the timeing? Thank you for sharing this delicious looking recipe…

  5. I had the chocolate melting cake on the second night of our cruise. It was so good I had it every night after that.
    If you have cake all the way through and no hot fudge center, you cooked it too long.

  6. I had this every night on my Bahamas cruise 6 years ago and have been dreaming of it ever since! I made this recipe yesterday and it’s just as incredible as I remember it on the ship! THANK YOU for this perfect recipe! My one question though…the taste is perfect, but is there anything I can to to prevent it from falling/collapsing after it comes out of the oven?? I’d love to serve this to guests but it doesn’t look as impressive after it sinks 😕

  7. We JUST got back from a Carnival cruise and our party of 8 could not get enough of this! Ordered it every single night at dinner. I can’t wait to have them all over for dinner and surprise them with this for dinner. Thanks!

  8. Can you make the batter ahead of time and keep in the fridge until ready to use? Also can you triple the batter or is it best to make one at a time?
    Thanks

  9. We just got back from our Carnival Cruise. My son loved this and has asked for this year’s birthday cake in February. He will be tickled. Thanks for sharing

  10. This was just ok… I didn’t meet my expectations, didn’t taste like the cake on the ship ); what chocolate did you use? Mine was more milk chocolate than rich dark chocolate, and I used dark chocolate chips!
