Irresistible. Really.

  1. 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.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate together and mix. Pour into a big bowl.
  3. Sieve in the flour and sugar and whisk.
  4. Add the eggs and continue to whisk. If you like a more cake-y texture, keep on whisking until it turns lighter.
  5. Pour into ramekins. It took up around 8 ramekins for me, but it really depends on the size.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
