A brick oven makes baking cakes so much easier. Now you don't have to prepare the cake fully before your guests arrive, now you can bake it while they're there, tempting them with a cake "straight out of the oven!" This chocolate soufflé cake is delicious warm, too! Watch the full video recipe for baking chocolate soufflé cake with Chef Hubert Keller.
