Recipe by "Pink Eyed" Jim Cortina
Made this recipe in a baking class years ago. It's so sinful. When you take your first bite, the liquid center oozes out and makes its own sauce. I serve this with a strawberry coulis and a dab of creme fraiche.

This truly came out fantastic. I needed twelve portions for a dinner party, when looking at the recipe and quantities, I thought doubling the recipe would be way too much, so I did 1.5 times the ingredients and out of that quantity is was able to make 14 beautiful 1/3C ramekins. That is plenty big because this is a really rich dessert. Due to the quantity I baked them for 7 min. I did line the bottom of the cups with parchment paper. They came out really easy. Delicious.
