Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate or 8 ounces dark chocolate
- 100 g sugar
- 50 g flour
- 5 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 200-210°C (400°C). Grease or butter ramekins. Make sure you use a lot of butter/oil if you want to invert it onto a plate, otherwise it will stick.
- Melt the butter and chocolate together and mix. Pour into a big bowl.
- Sieve in the flour and sugar and whisk.
- Add the eggs and continue to whisk. If you like a more cake-y texture, keep on whisking until it turns lighter.
- Pour into ramekins. It took up around 8 ramekins for me, but it really depends on the size.
- Bake for around 10 minutes. It's best to keep an eye on it just to make sure it doesn't overcook. If it does, it's just a really moist cake, good but not quite as satisfying.
- Serve with ice cream and strawberries. Or banana. A good idea can be to chop fruit beside it and use the filling as a sort of fondue.
I was hunting for the perfect recipe when I came across this one. Its my first time making these and let alone trying one. This was so awesome and deserves more than a 5 star rating! I used dark chocolate instead and wow, these were a hit on Valentines Day and still talking about it today =D
This was exactly what I was looking for, and sooooo delicious. I did add a pinch of cinnamon for richness. Also, I don't have any ramekins, so I used a 6-cup muffin pan to bake my melty cakes in. I served these alone with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
