Mr. Food

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 15 min

  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/4 sticks butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat 6 ramekin or custard cups with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
  2. In a microwave-safe medium bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter in microwave for 1 minute. Continue to melt at 15-second intervals until chocolate is smooth.
  3. Add flour and sugar to chocolate mixture; mix well. Stir in eggs and yolks until smooth, then stir in vanilla.
  4. Spoon batter evenly into ramekins. Bake 12 to 14 minutes; remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes. Edges should be firm and center will be soft. Loosen around edges with a knife and invert onto dessert plates.
  • Top with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream and your favorite fruit. 
  • If you don't have ramekins or custard cups, you can use a cupcake tin.
