MOLTEN CHOCOLATE CAKES
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Bake Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for the ramekins
1 tablespoon flour, plus more for the ramekins
1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1 large egg plus 1 large egg yolk
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1. Heat oven to 450°F. Butter two 6-oz. ramekins and dust the inside with flour.
2. Place the butter and chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave on high in 20-second intervals, stirring after each, until melted and smooth.
3. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg, egg yolk and sugar in a medium owl until thick and lighter in color, about 1 minute. Add the melted chocolate mixture and flour and beat until fully incorporated and smooth.
4. Divide the batter between the prepared ramekins. Bake until edges are set and center still jiggles slightly, 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand for 15 seconds. Run a knife around the edge, then invert each cake onto a plate. Dust with confectioner’s sugar and serve with fresh mint or berries, if desired. Serve immediately.
Make-Ahead Tip: Refrigerate the batter in the ramekins for up to 1 day. Before baking, bring to room temperature.

I did not use an electric mixer and got the same results by hand. Plus, less cleaning up!
