Moelleux au Chocolat (Chocolate Lava Cake)

Watch the video for this recipe:
One of the best chocolate lava cake I've made so far. Smooth, delicate and delicious. Crusty top while inside is still runny - totally irresistible.
- Makes 6 servings
- 3 eggs
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 6 ounce (170 g) dark chocolate
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 stick (110 g) butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- Butter six ramekins, or aluminum muffins molds and dust with flour.
- Melt chocolate and butter over a bain-marie until smooth. Meanwhile beat the eggs with sugar and salt using a whisk or mixer until thick and light yellow. Mix in vanilla extract and flour. Gradually add the melted chocolate and stir well. Pour mixture into the prepared molds.
- Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F). Bake for 10 minutes until the edges are firm and the center is still soft. Remove and let cool slightly for few seconds. Run a sharp knife completely around the inside edge of the molds and invert onto plates. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top, and serve immediately.
