“Really simple, really rich- Great for a dinner party, or just to make and enjoy a little at a time! From one of my mother's recipe cards. I always remember her making these for company.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Chop the chocolate up into smaller pieces and melt butter and chocolate in separate bowls over broiler.
  3. (Sometimes when I'm lazy I just put them together in the microwave at 50% power and stir every 30 seconds).
  4. Mix eggs& sugar well, then add flour to the eggs and sugar, and mix together.
  5. Stir melted butter& chocolate together (If you melted them separately).
  6. Pour in chocolate/butter mixture into sugar mixture and stir to combine, but don't over-mix.
  7. Pour final mix into individual tin baking cups (muffin tins, or cleaned-out tuna cans work really well too).
  8. Bake at 350°F for 8 minutes NO LONGER THAN 8 MINUTES.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before turning out.
  10. Serving suggestion: Plate with raspberry sauce and sprinkle with powered sugar, or topped with espresso ice cream, or bring 1 and 1/2 cups red wine, lemon zest and cinnamon to a boil, then reduce by 50%.
