Something Sweet in Honor of Six Sweet Years of Marriage

Six years ago today My Farmer and I said "I do".  We had a beautiful wedding and a fun reception with many family and friends by our side.

After exchanging our vows
At the end of our 1st night as Mr. & Mrs.
Following our wedding we took a cruise along the western side of Mexico.  While on our cruise we fell in love with the cruise boat's Chocolate Melting Cake.  We had it almost nightly while on the boat.  So as soon as we got back I knew I had to recreate the cake so we could have it at home.  I make the cake now for our anniversary, My Farmer's birthday, Valentine's Day and any other special occasion, or if I'm really craving chocolate!

So here's to six sweet years of marriage!

Chocolate Melting Cake for Two - the Perfect Valentine's Day Dessert

Chocolate Melting Cake for Two

Microwave chocolate and butter on High for 1 minute or until melted.  Stir with wire whisk.  Blend in egg and egg yolk.  Stir in powdered sugar and flour.  Divide between prepared custard cups.

Bake at 425 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until sides are firm but centers are soft.  Let stand 1 minute.  Serve immediately topped with ice cream of whipped topping.

Mmm... See how it is all ooey gooey in the middle.

What are some of your memories from your wedding day or honeymoon?  Do you have any food memories that correspond with those special days?

  1. Happy six years! Your wedding dress is beautiful. I'm excited to see that I might actually have all of the cake ingredients in my pantry. We still haven't gone on a honeymoon yet, but are planning for a road trip to Chicago.

    1. Thanks Jeni! I always keep all the ingredients on stock in my pantry and I hope you have them too so you can enjoy the cake. We went to Chicago last year and if you've never been to Chicago before I highly recommend going on a architectural boat cruise.
