  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Butter four 6-ounce ramekins and dust with sugar.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate in the top of a double boiler or in a heatproof bowl over barely simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, whip the whole eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed for about 10 minutes. Fold in the melted chocolate mixture. Fold in the flour just until combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared ramekins.
  4. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes, until the top and sides are set. The center will be quite soft. Remove from the oven and let sit for about 5 minutes, then unmold each ramekin onto a dessert plate. Serve with a few raspberries and a dollop of whipped cream.

I baked the cakes for 10 min and let sit for 5 like the directions said but I found that the cakes were more liquid than cake than I would like. Next time I will bake the cakes a little longer. Other than that whats not to like about hot liquid chocolate.

I made this once and it turned out pretty good. It tastes a little eggy if eaten after it cools down... but it was a hit when I made for a family reunion. I am planning to make this again when I will have friends over.
