What You'll Need
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  1. Grease six ramekins, and line with a disk of parchment at the bottom.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a medium heat-proof bowl set over a pot of barely simmering water, stir until melted and smooth. Let cool for 15 minutes.
  3. Beat the eggs and sugar with a hand-held electric mixer until thick, pale and ribbony. Beat in flour. Then slowly add the chocolate mixture while beating.
  4. Evenly distribute the batter into the ramekins and chill.
