Tarla Dalal    The butter used in this recipe is melted butter not soft butter or frozen, make sure it is melted and do try the recipe again. And do let us know your feedback.

gooey yummy chocolate molten cake.. easy steps to follow, made very quick. I made in small glasses for my guest. they enjoyed it.

This batter becomes liquid and the chocolate chunks floats in it.. The batter gets mixed up. Should I decrease the quantity of milk.
