Use a Cement Mixer

Several of us really enjoyed the Warm Chocolate Melting Cake on the cruise. So I googled the recipe and found several "Official" recipes. Here's a good one:

Recipe from Carnival Cruiseship Legend (August 2007)

Melting Chocolate Cake
Portions: 1000
70 lb semisweet chocolate
70 lb butter
700 eggs
18 lb sugar
25 lb flour

Melt chocolate and butter. Mix half egg and sugar, add flour, add remainder egg. Mix egg mixture with chocolate mixture. Pour into ramekins. Bake 15-20 min at 200 Celcius. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Someone reviewed this recipe and suggested using a cement mixer to mix the ingredients! Can you imagine cracking 700 eggs! I'll post on the recipe blog the version for serving 10 after I try out a few of the "official recipes."

This MIGHT feed our family.

I stayed away from this decadent dessert until the last night...our waiter brought an extra, so I had to indulge. By the way, before the cruise I weighed in at 32 pounds less than last Thanksgiving...not so now! So much good food that I have to redo the last month's progress...even after working out every day on board.

That's funny. Do you have a cement mixer for the task? ...Although, Jocelyn did say that after trying Dad's "Thanksgiving Diet", she never wants to eat again. Looking forward to a mixing bowl size recipe on the chef blog.

I just read Brent's comment! That's too funny! Maybe Brent knows of a cement mixer that he can borrow.

By the way... great job, Dad, at losing so much weight! Good luck losing the cruise weight. I hope it was worth it anyway!

Sunday morning is my regular weekly weigh-in. Good news! Not sure why the scale read so high on Friday morning, but now I am down 33 pounds since Thanksgiving.
