ingredients

  • 1 stick plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, with 60 percent cocoa solids

      recipe tools

      Directions

      Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.

      Butter the ramekins with 1 tablespoon butter.

      Either in a microwave or in a bowl suspended over a pan over simmering water, melt the dark chocolate and 1 stick butter, then set aside to cool a little.

      In another bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar and flour with a hand whisk and beat in the cooled butter and chocolate mixture. Divide the mixture between the 4 buttered ramekins. Bake for about 20 minutes, by which time the tops will be cooked and cracked and the chocolate gooey underneath.

      Place each ramekin on a small plate with a teaspoon and serve. Make sure to warn people that these desserts will be HOT!
