Chocolate Dreams Come True Step by Step

  1. Before you get started with the ingredients, preheat your oven to 450.
  2. Then, butter and flour four 6-ounce ramekins. Be sure to tap out the excess flour, as you should only lightly flour them. Now, set them on a baking sheet.
  3. Using a double boiler, melt the butter and chocolate together over simmering water.
  4. Grab a medium bowl. Beat together the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and salt, with a hand mixer on high speed. It is ready once it is thick in texture and pales in color.
  5. Now, whisk the chocolate together. Once smooth, fold in flour and egg mixture.
  6. Spoon the batter into the ramekins.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes or until the center of the cake is soft and the sides are firm.
  8. Once you remove the tasty treat from the oven, let it sit for 1 minute. To remove, cover with your plate of choice, and turn over each one very carefully.
  9. Let the cakes sit for 10 seconds, then unmold. Serve with vanilla ice cream and berries of your choice! Our favorite is strawberry.
