Step 3

Make The Batter

Dice the butter and chop the chocolate into small cubes. Microwave on high (800W) for 20 seconds at a time, stirring in between until almost all of the chocolate has melted. Stir to melt the last bit of chocolate. Crack the eggs and egg yolks into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar and the salt and whisk until pale. Fold the chocolate mix into the eggs. Add the flour and fold to combine fully.


Step 4


Pour the chocolate mix into the ramekins, filling about ¾ of the way up. Put the ramekins onto a baking tray and bake for 12-14 minutes (it can take some experimentation with your oven and the size of your moulds!).
