Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake
Yield: 1


   1/2 c  unsalted butter; plus extra
     1    buttering the molds
     4 oz good quality bittersweet
          -chocolate; such as valrhona
     2    eggs
     2    egg yolks
   1/4 c  sugar
     2 ts flour; plus extra for
     1    dusting the molds


Makes 4 servings
1. Lightly butter and flour 4 (4-ounce) molds, custard  cups or
ramekins. Tap out the excess flour, then butter and  flour the molds
again. Set aside.

2. In the top of a double boiler set over simmering  water, heat the
butter and chocolate together until the chocolate is  almost
completely melted, about 15 minutes.

3. In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat together  eggs, egg
yolks and sugar until light and thick, about 5 minutes.

4. Remove melted chocolate from heat. With a wire  whisk, beat the
chocolate-butter mixture, by hand, until combined.  Pour in the
egg-sugar mixture and quickly beat in the flour, just  until combined
(do not overmix).

5. Equally divide the batter among the reserved  molds. Place molds on
a baking sheet in a preheated 450-degree oven. Bake  for 7 to 10
minutes or until the sides are set but the center is still  quite soft
and wiggly. Remove from oven and invert each mold  onto individual
serving plates. Let stand for about 30 seconds.  Unmold by lifting up
one edge of the mold; the cake will fall out onto the  plate. Serve
