  • 125 g butter (diced plus extra for greasing (see note))
  • 60 g caster sugar plus extra for dusting (see note)
  • 100 g 70% chocolate broken into pieces
  • 3 eggs
  • Cream, vanilla ice cream or raspberries to serve (optional)
  • You will also need 5x100ml ramekins


  • Preheat the oven to 220°C
  • Place the ramekins on a baking sheet.
  • Create a double boiler by placing a bowl over a pan of boiling water, ensuring that the base of the bowl does not touch the water.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate in the double boiler, stirring occasionally. Once melted, turn the heat off but leave the chocolate mixture over the heat.
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar together using an electric whisk, until light and thickened. This will take about 5 minutes.
  • Slowly pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, beating constantly.
  • Give the mixture a final mix with a spatula to ensure the chocolate is thoroughly combined then divide the mixture evenly between the ramekins.
  • Place the ramekins into the oven and bake for 6 minutes then remove and enjoy.
