Monday Bake - Chocohotopots

We have had CatK for a whole year!  He settled in with us so quickly, it feels like we had never not had him.   Sometimes he is a bit stingy with his cuddles but I would say the only bad thing about him is his delivery of "the presents".   We've had mice, birds (ranging from baby ones to a massive pigeon) and a live rat.....eurgh....coming home to a trail of feathers is not fun!  Either is lying in bed in the morning hearing your Hubby shouting "kill it" or "just eat it - stop playing with it!"  A collar and bell have been considered but he is soooo fluffy and climbs so many things I do worry a collar won't be a good idea and he might get stuck somewhere - might have to do some investigation.  
For pudding yesterday I made Nigella's Chocohotopots from her Feast book.  You can find the recipe here.  These are lovely little puddings, spongy and gooey and yes, very hot!   I served them with a dollop of vanilla icecream.   Her recipe states it's for 4 but I divided the mixture between 6 ramekins, had 3 one night and put the others in the fridge for the next night.  As mine were slightly smaller I just adjusted the cooking time.

Minibakebakegirl said they were nice but not as nice as the Molten Chocolate Babycakes, which is probably due to the amount of chocolate in the Babycakes!
