This flourless chocolate dessert just melts in your mouth! It's quick, easy and gluten-free!
  • 1 stick butter
  • 4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Butter 4 ramekins (6 to 8 oz. in size)
  3. In a saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat stirring constantly. Then stir in sugar and remove pan from heat.
  4. In mixer, beat 2 whole eggs and an additional 2 egg yolks. Add vanilla and continue mixing.
  5. Very slowly add chocolate mixture into eggs going slow enough to make sure you don't cook the eggs.
  6. Once everything is incorporated well, pour chocolate mixture into all 4 ramekins. Place ramekins on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes and then place on cooling rack.
  7. Cake continues to cook in ramekins so if you want to be sure to have a liquid center you might want to pull out a minute early. It really all depends on your desired doneness. I've had them both ways. If it cooks a tad too long and you have a set center...they are still very good and are more like a chocolate mousse cake or souffle. You really can't mess these up!! Enjoy!!
  8. Serve with homemade whipped cream or fresh berries.
