  • 1 1/4 cups semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed
  • 3 whole eggs, best when room temperature
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Dutch processed in this recipe to make it extra dark and fudgy)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea or kosher salt
  • fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries for garnish, this is optional1 tablespoon powdered sugar for topping, this is optional
  • 4 tbsp aerosol whipped topping


  1. Butter 6 six ounce ramekins, coat the bottom and sides. Place them side by side on a rimmed cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 400 degreesIn a heat proof microwave bowl or glass measuring cup that is microwave safe, add the chopped chocolate and cubed butter. Microwave for 25 seconds. Take out and stir. Do this another few times until chocolate is almost melted. Take out and stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Sift the cocoa powder over the chocolate mixture. Mix well to combine. Add in sugar. Mix again to combine. Add in vanilla extract, and salt. Mix. Now add in one egg at a time, mix after each egg has been added. Then add the egg yolks and do the same by mixing after each yolk has been added. Pour chocolate mixture into prepared ramekins. Don’t go all the way to the top. Fill about 3/4 full. (If you have leftover chocolate mixture, make some more. You can also make these in muffin cups. Bake for about 14 to 16 minutes. The centers will still be a little wiggly. This is okay. When finished. Let cool about 5 minutes. Then, take a butter or steak knife and go around the edges of each ramekin. Take a small plate and place on top of the ramekin, invert and the molten cake should come right out. Sprinkle powdered sugar if using and garnish with some fresh berries. Add some ice cream and whipped cream. Enjoy!
