For me, this quick and easy to make recipe is the go-to for when I’m having difficult days. Every spoon of the cakey crumb and molten chocolate in the center, is the perfect mood lifter.

  • Makes 4 medium-sized ramekins
  • Cook Time



  • 200 gm dark chocolate
  • 200 gm butter
  • 150 gm castor sugar
  • 60 gm flour
  • 4 eggs


  1. Melt the chocolate and butter over a hot water bath or in the microwave.
  2. Add the castor sugar, whisk and wait for the mixture to cool.
  3. Once cool, add the eggs, one by one, whisking well after each addition.
  4. Fold in the flour and pour the batter into the ramekins.
  5. Bake at 200°C for 7-8 minutes. The edges should be cooked while the centre should remain wobbly.
