  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease and flour four ramekins.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate chips together in 30-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
  3. Stir in the powdered sugar until well combined.
  4. Beat in the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla extract until the mixture is creamy.
  5. Finally, fold in the flour and salt until just combined.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared ramekins.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges are firm but the centers are still soft.
  8. Remove from the oven and let them sit for a minute before gently running a knife around the edges to loosen the cakes.
  9. Invert each cake onto a plate, and watch as the luscious chocolate lava flows out.
  10. Serve immediately, garnished with a dusting of powdered sugar or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
