  • 4 oz (113g) bittersweet chocolate
  • 4 oz (113g) butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp Instant coffee or espresso powder (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400°F or 200°C. Generously butter and dust 5 ramekins with cocoa powder or sugar; set aside.
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and butter in 30-second increments.
  • In a separate large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy. Whisk in the melted chocolate along with the flour, vanilla, and instant coffee if desired.
  • Divide batter into ramekins and place them on a baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes or until the edges begin to pull away from the ramekins but the center is still jiggly.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately with ice cream.
