2ozhigh-quality chocolate chopped - no chocolate chips, use a chocolate bar from the baking aisle
2tbspwhite granulated sugar
Extra butter + unsweetened cocoa powder or non-stick sprayfor greasing and flouring
Place the butter into a medium microwave-safe bowl. Add the chopped chocolate on top. Microwave on high in 10 seconds increments stirring between each increment until completely smooth and combined. Allow the mixture to cool slightly before moving onto the next step. Meanwhile, grease two ramekins with butter and flour them with unsweetened cocoa powder.
Add the room temperature egg and sugar to the chocolate mixture. Using a whisk, whisk until fully combined.
Add in the flour and mix until combined again. Your batter should be completely smooth so use your whisk to get rid of any lumps.
Pour the batter into your ramekins, cover with aluminum foil and freeze for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 425F. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the top looks soft and is slightly jiggly. I like mine at 13 minutes. Remove the cakes from the oven, unmold and invert onto a plate, add your favorite toppings, and serve immediately. If you're baking them in a muffin pan, the cakes might take about 8-10 minutes to bake, use a spoon or knife to release them from the pan.
