2 servings


  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 large egg, at room temperature

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, sifted


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 ramekins and set aside.

  2. Combine chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave at 15-second intervals until almost melted. Remove from the microwave and stir until chocolate is completely melted and thoroughly combined. Set aside.

  3. Combine sugar, egg, vanilla extract, and salt in a separate bowl. Pour into chocolate mixture and whisk until combined. Add flour, stirring until combined. Divide batter evenly between both ramekins.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until set, 12 to 14 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.

Cook's Note:

These will appear undone but will continue to bake in the ramekins. For a molten cake, bake for 12 minutes. For a fudgier cake, bake for 14 minutes.
