How to make it

  • Position rack in the middle of the oven.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Arrange 8-ounce ovenproof mugs or ramekins in a baking dish.
  • Place chocolate and butter in top of double boiler set over gently simmering water.
  • Whisk occasionally until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Stir the eggs and sugar together in the bowl of a stand mixer; then set over the simmering water and stir until warm to the touch.
  • Place bowl on mixer and use whisk attachment to beat for 3 to 5 minutes OR until light and fluffy.
  • Remove from mixer and fold the eggs into the chocolate mixture until it is light and smooth.
  • Spoon batter into cups.
  • Add enough very hot water to baking pan to come halfway up sides of cups.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • The baked hot chocolates will be done when the tops lose their glossy finish.
  • A wooden skewer inserted in the top will emerge clean, but batter toward bottom of the cup will still be very moist.
  • Carefully remove cups from the pan.
  • The cakes can be served warm, at room temperature or covered and refrigerated for up to 1 day.
  • To re-heat, bring to room temperature and place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5 minutes OR until warm.
  • Serve topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
