- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 4 ounces high-quality semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 large egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease and flour four ramekins.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate together in 30-second increments until smooth. Stir in the powdered sugar.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla extract until well combined. Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and whisk until smooth.
- Sift in the flour and salt, and gently fold the mixture until just combined.
- Divide the batter evenly among the prepared ramekins. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are set but the center is still soft.
- Remove from the oven and let the cakes cool for a minute. Run a knife around the edges to loosen, then invert each cake onto a plate.
- Serve immediately, and watch in delight as the warm, gooey chocolate center flows out like a molten river when you cut into the cake. Garnish with a dusting of powdered sugar or a scoop of vanilla ice cream if desired.
