Author Chef Maria Cummins


  • Bowl and rubber spatula
  • 4 Individual ramekins (custard cups)
  • Baking sheet


  • 4 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • ¼  cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yokes
  • 6 tbsp flour
  • 4 (6-8 oz) custard cups/ramekins


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Generously spray 4 small custard cups with nonstick baking spray then place on a baking sheet.
  • Using a double boiler, add coconut oil and baking chocolate and boil until melted string occasionally.
  • Remove from the double boiler, and add to a stand mixer with the paddle attachment.  Stir in sugar until smooth.
  • Add eggs and egg yolks then beat for 1 minute.
  • Add flour then stir until just combined.
  • Evenly spoon batter into prepared cups. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the sides are firm but the centers are still soft (but not jiggly).
  • Let cool for 2 minutes, then gently loosen cakes from custard cups by sliding a knife around the edges of each cake; then invert cakes onto serving plates.
  • Dust with powdered sugar (optional) and serve immediately (because the cakes will continue to cook in the center).
