Ingredients
  • 7 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 11 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour 6 (6-ounce) ramekins.

  • Place 5 1/2 ounces of the chocolate and the butter in the top of a double boiler, and melt them over simmering water.

  • Using a mixer with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs, egg yolks and sugar together until pale and thick, about 8 minutes. Reduce speed and add flour. Add the chocolate mixture and continue beating until glossy, about another 5 minutes.

  • Divide half the mixture into the ramekins. Divide the remaining chopped chocolate among the ramekins, making a little pile in the middle of each one. Top with the rest of the batter.

  • Bake until just set around the edges, but the center still jiggles. About 12 minutes. DO NOT overcook.

  • Cool just a few minutes and unmold each cake onto a plate.
