  • Prep Time
  • 12Servings


  • 1 cup unsalted margarine or butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup tightly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups high-quality dark bar chocolate, cut into bite-size pieces


  1. Cream the butter and sugars until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time. Beat until very light in color. Add the vanilla.
  2. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt together in a small bowl. Add the dry ingredients slowly to the wet mixture, and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate pieces.
  3. Chill the mixture for 2 hours or overnight.
  4. Grease 2 disposable 6 cup muffin tins with cooking spray and a small dusting of flour. Fill with a 2 tablespoon size ball of dough. (Ramekins can also be used, but watch the cooking time very carefully).
  5. Cook 9-12 minutes at 400℉ until lightly browned on the entire top. Turn each molten cake over onto a plate to serve, and garnish with vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream. Serve immediately while still hot!
