  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • Cocoa powder or flour for dusting

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a microwave, melt butter and chocolate together in 20 second increments, stirring after each, until melted and smooth.  (Can also use a double boiler method for this step)

In a bowl, add egg, egg yolk and sugar and whisk until combined. Add eggs and flour to the melted chocolate and whisk until combined.

Butter or spray 2 ramekins with  cooking spray  and dust with cocoa/flour. Tap out any excess. Divide batter into ramekins.
