  1. Melt the chocolate and butter together. You can use a double broiler, or the microwave. Just get it nice and smooth. Add the flour and sugar. It will be very thick.
  2. Stir in the eggs, yolks, and vanilla until smooth. Divide the batter among the custard cups.
  3. This makes enough for 6 (6 ounce) cakes. Grease them well!! I also coasted them with sugar, because I have heard that works well for helping it rise and not stick.
  4. Bake in a 425 degree oven for exactly 14 minutes. Longer it will not be gooey in the center. The edges should be firm. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates. Sprinkle on some powdered sugar, top with whip cream and enjoy!
  5. Tip - I think if you let it sit in the cup for just a couple minutes before inverting it, you will have better luck. I think I jumped the gun on turning it onto the plate. This batter freezes well. Make what you need, freeze the leftovers for later.
