This is a yummy dessert and is SO easy to make. The best bit is that it’s supposed to be served undercooked. You can’t go wrong. If you like ooey gooey chocolate and cake, I promise you’ll loosen your belt and sigh, “orgasmic” when you’re done.
A little information to pass along before I get to the recipe.
Guest Posting Tips
You probably saw that I did a guest post for my good friend Dennis over at A Culinary Journey last week. If you accept guest posts on your blog, you know it can be a time consuming task to get the post via email along with all the photos and then get those in the right spots in the post and then write the intro.
Okay it’s not an enormous amount of work but usually when you want a guest post it’s because you’re flat outta time and instead of sleeping you’re formatting a post that a wonderfu person sent to you for your blog. Well, I’ve got a good idea for you.
If you both use WordPress and you are the guest poster, write your guest posts on your own blog, complete with photos and your recipe. Double check it for accuracy – I saw one the other day that should have been two tablespoons and the blogger got distracted and wrote two pounds. Someone had made the recipe with two pounds of butter. I won’t get into why I would have questioned 2 pounds of butter when there were only 1 1/2 cups of flour.
Once you’re happy with your post, click the HTML button on the right just above the edit window. You’ll see all the actual code that goes into that WordPress blog post. Click anywhere inside that panel and then control-A and then control-C to select all and then copy. If you have a Mac I dunno cut and paste on that, sorry.
Paste that html code in an email to the person who’s hosting your guest post. They’ll get that email, go to their WordPress admin, start a new post and then before doing anything will click the html and paste your post in. Then they click Visual and add the the promo text, title, keywords, description and bam, they’re done. All the photos are in and hosted on the guest poster’s site. If that’s a problem you can copy them over but I never do.
It means that a guest post can be done in 10 minutes instead of 30.
Back to our regularly scheduled post.
