hi there! i'm dying to try this recipe! If i bake the cake for 15 Min, will it still have a "liquidy" filling? i have small ceramic "creme brulee" bowls that i plan to make this recipe in. excited to try it!

Thank you!

Qops, missed your comment, sorry! We've been having to experiment with the times. Sometimes, 14 minutes is too long, sometimes it takes 17! I think it depends a lot on your oven temperature.
