Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers276 Reviews
“Warm, soft and gooey chocolate cakes. Perfect for that ubiquitous chocolate fix. A good-quality bittersweet chocolate is necessary for the succes of these cakes.” - by Russ Smith
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Butter and flour four 4 ounce ramekins or custard cups.
- In the top half of a double boiler set over simmering water, heat the butter and the chocolate until chocolate is almost completely melted.
- Beat the eggs, egg yolks and sugar together until light colored and thick.
- Beat together the melted chocolate and butter. While beating, slowly pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, then quickly beat in the flour and mix until just combined.
- Divide the batter between the four molds and bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 6 to 7 minutes. The centers of the cakes will still be quite soft. Invert cakes on serving plates and let sit for about 15 seconds, then unmold. Serve immediately with fresh whipped cream, if desired.

"I only needed to make 2 of these, so I cut everything in half very easily. I used 1/4 cup Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet chocolate chips and melted it with the butter in the microwave. In about 40 ..." See moreseconds everything was nicely melted. I sprayed the ramekins with Canola Cooking spray and baked for about 9 minutes. These were perfect and SO easy to make. A light dusting of confectioner's sugar or a drizzle of caramel on top, makes them look so pretty."
"Oh my goodness!! These are rich, delicious and sinful! And EASY! I followed the recipe ingredients exactly, using Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate. I saw a similar recipe that said it is ok to set as..." See moreide and refrigerate the prepared batter for a few hours, just remove and allow to come to room temperature before baking. I made the batter before dinner and took it out of the fridge just as we sat down to eat. I put them in the oven as we finished the meal. The cakes still looked a bit wet after 6 minutes, so I left them 2 minutes longer. I'm not sure if this was because the batter was still a bit cold when I put them in. I used pyrex custard cups and they didn't unmold too well, the one I tried to umold split and oozed all over the plate, but they tasted just as good eaten from the dish rather than unmolded. Another thing I discovered is that if you heat a leftover cake in the microwave for 30 seconds it bubbles up like a volcano and tastes nearly as good as fresh out of the oven!"
"Made 1/2 recipe to check timing for my oven. These are a bit tricky to bake JUST right but when you do they are delish! Added some vanilla to eggs, a pinch of salt, and an extra teaspoon of flour. Use..." See mored semi-sweet morsels (1/4 cup for 1/2 recipe). Baked 10 1/2 minutes but next time I'll try 12. They were a little too runny but this is a great recipe to HAVE to experiment with. Definitely serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream. Super EZ to make after dinner and also used the microwave to melt butter and chocolate (40 secs). Used pyrex custard cups buttered and sugared. No problem sticking. Can't wait to make for company. Will add some fresh raspberries or strawberries on the side. These are the same pricey souffles that many of the "Big" name restaurants serve. Never knew they were so simple and bet you've got all the ingredients. GO MAKE THESE NOW! YUMMY !!!"
