1/3 c Flour
Butter for Ramekins
Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Melt chocolate on low temperature in a double boiler.
  • Stir in pats of butter, until they melt.
  • In another bowl, beat eggs and sugar, until they start to whiten.
  • Stir in melted chocolate and then flour.
  • Butter 4 individual ramekins, and pour in chocolate batter.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes.

Hi I just found your blog, I went up to Kennebunk Port a couple of yrs ago and I loved it. We live in NJ near Philly . The beach was so gorgeous, and we stayed in Camden MN in a little Inn called the Hartstone Inn , it was such a lovely vacation.
