Molten Chocolate Cakes may have numerous versions, but this recipe is guaranteed to be one of the best. Supremely rich, chocolatey, and the center is simply irresistible!



6 oz. bittersweet chocolate

1, 4-oz unsalted butter

2 eggs

2 egg yolks

2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1/4 c. sugar

1 pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Butter and flour 4 ramekins (6-oz each). Get rid of the excess flour and arrange them on a baking sheet.
  3. Put a double boiler over simmering water and melt the butter and chocolate.
  4. Beat the eggs and egg yolks in a medium bowl. Add sugar and salt and beat at high speed until thickened.
  5. Whisk the chocolate until smooth and fold it into the egg mixture with the flour. Spoon the batter into the ramekins.
  6. Bake for about 12 minutes or until the sides are firm but the centers are still soft. Let them cool for a minute. Put a dessert plate over each ramekin and slowly turn each one over. Let stand for a few seconds before unmolding.
  7. Serve immediately.


For make-ahead, you can put the batter in the fridge for a few hours before baking.
