Molten Chocolate Cakes

Molten Chocolate Cakes


  • 1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup cake flour


  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Spray four ¾ cup (6 ounce) ramekins with nonstick cooking spray. Place ramekins on a sheet pan.
  • Place chocolate into a heatproof bowl over a saucepan filled with one inch of simmering water and stir until melted. Cool for two minutes.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer using the paddle attachment, combine the sugar and eggs and mix on medium speed until well combined.
  • Add the softened butter and flour and mix well.
  • On low speed, blend in chocolate.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the four greased ramekins. Each ramekin should be filled about three quarters full.
  • Bake for approximately 16 minutes or until the tops of the cakes are cracked and puffed.
  • Run a small knife around the edges of each ramekin and invert cakes onto each of four plates.
  • Top with vanilla ice cream and serve at once.
