Step 1:

Grease the ramekins with a little bit of butter, then dust the insides with flour, tapping out the excess. This will keep the cake from sticking to the cups. Place them on a baking sheet and set them aside. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2:

Set up a double boiler. Add some hot water in a medium saucepan and place a medium heatproof mixing bowl over the top. Make sure the bowl is over the steam and not over the water. Add the semi-sweet chocolate chips and butter. Keep the heat to medium-low as you just want the water below to stay at a simmer. Stir it constantly for about 3-5 minutes. Once done, take it off the heat and set it aside.

Step 3:

In a second large mixing bowl, combine two large eggs and two egg yolks. Next, add granulated sugar and salt. Beat together using an electric mixer for about 5 minutes.

Step 4:

Combine the chocolate with the egg mixture then add vanilla extract. Fold together until well combined then add all-purpose flour. Keep folding until blended. Divide the chocolate batter between the 4 prepared ramekins using an ice cream scoop.

Step 5:

Bake in the center of the preheated oven at 450 degrees F for about 10 to 12 minutes. You want the outsides to be firm and dry and the centers soft and just barely wobbly.

Step 6:

Remove them from the oven, let them cool for 1 minute and transfer them to a plate. Dust with powdered sugar on top.  Serve with ice cream and berries if preferred.
