  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 425. Spray four 6 ounce ramekins with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
  2. Add the butter and chocolate to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for one minute, or until the butter is melted. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
  3. Add the powdered sugar and stir until combined, then add the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla, and stir until smooth. Add the flour, and stir until combined. Divide the batter evenly between the ramekins.
  4. Bake 13 minutes, then remove from the oven and let stand 5-10 minutes. Run a plastic knife around the edge of each cake to release it from the ramekin, then invert onto a plate.
  5. Dust with powdered sugar and serve warm.
