2 tablespoons butter
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate coarsely chopped
3/4 cup butter
3 egg yolks
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
Powdered sugar & berries for garnish
1. Using the 2 tablespoons butter, grease the 8- to 10-oz ramekins or souffle dishes. Place ramekins in a baking pan; set aside.
2. In a heavy small saucepan, combine chocolate and the 3/4 cup butter. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate melts. Remove pan from heat; set aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, egg yolks, granulated sugar, and vanilla until thick and lemon colored. Fold 1/3 of the chocolate mixture into egg mixture. Fold remaining chocolate mixture and flour into egg mixture. Spoon about 2/3 cup batter into each prepared ramekin.
