Sublimely decadent just out of the oven. Tastes even greater after 10 seconds in the microwave on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th days!

Are these temperatures for a fan forced oven?

made this and was so disappointed. It only cooked around the edge so put it back in oven twice more. Ended up still raw so I cut the edges off and used it as brownies. Taste was great though. Couldnt work out pan size, 15cms? I used a round cake tin maybe this wrecked it. Anyone able to help me on this as I would love to make it again and have a whole cake to serve up.

I too have made this. Sorry its not "Truly Great Chocolate Cake", it;s bl....dy awsome. The easiest cake i have made to date. It went down well with everybody. Making it again for the second time. I too noticed that the measurements differed from show to recipie, so i met halfway. Also i found that it didn't look the same (undercooked) as Annas when it came out, so i put it in again for an extra 10min. See how this goes second time round.

15cm cake tin?? That doesn't sound right... it looked like Anna used a 10 inch springform pan.
And I'm pretty sure she said 300g of chocolate on the programme. I watched it twice just to be sure!
Can you please confirm?
Thanks so much!!
