Directions:
Preheat the oven to 425 F. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a mixing bowl set over simmering water. Keep warm. With an electric mixer, beat the eggs, yolks and sugar on medium speed until light in color and very thick. Mix one quarter of the egg mixture into the chocolate and butter. Fold the rest of the chocolate into the batter, sprinkling on the flour to incorporate. Ladle into 8 individual, buttered, 1/2-3/4 –cup souffle dishes or muffin cups. Bake for 7-8 minutes. (Cakes should still be very soft and liquid in the middle.) Let cool at room temperature. Unmold. To serve, reheat the cakes in a microwave 15-20 seconds (don't overdo it or the cakes will be
dry!). Serve with fresh fruit and whipped cream or ice cream if desired. (Extra cakes may be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated. To serve, unwrap, place on dessert plate, bring to room temperature before microwaving 15-20 seconds on high power.
