  • 2 tablespoons Plain Flour (about 30ml)

  1. Over a low heat, add butter and chocolate and melt until smooth, stirring often; or use double boiler if you are a slow baker like me.
  2. Add sugar, egg and vanilla. Mix well until combined. 
  3. Add Flour and gently whisk in until combined. 
  4. Remove from heat and pour into greased 10cm ramekins, place in a preheated oven at 220c/400f for 9 minutes.
