  • Difficulty Level Easy
  • Technique Baking
  • Preparation Time 10 minutes
  • Cooking Time 20 minutes
  • Yield 1 serving
  • ½ cup Butter, plus more to butter the molds
  • 180 grams (6 oz) Dark Chocolate
  • 3 Eggs, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup Sugar (80 ml) plus more for the molds
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) Flour
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and chocolate together until the chocolate mixture is smooth. Set aside
  2. Meanwhile, beat together the eggs and sugar with a whisk or electric beater until pale and thick, about 5 minutes
  3. Pour the melted chocolate in the egg mixture and mix well. Blend in the flour, just until combined
  4. Butter and lightly sugar four 4-ounce molds, custard cups, or ramekins. Tap out the excess sugar. Divide the batter among the molds. Cook's note:(At this point you can refrigerate the desserts until you are ready to eat, for up to several hours; bring them back to room temperature before baking.)
  5. Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C). Bake the molten chocolate on a tray for 8 to 10 minutes; the center will still be quite soft, but the sides will be set. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving with your favorite ice cream
