Units Scale
  • plant based margarine and gluten free flour for greasing ramakins
  • 1/2 cup plant based margarine (1 stick)
  • 8ounces semi-sweet chocolate (at least 45% cacao)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons gluten free 1:1 flour
  • fruit coulis for serving, optional
  • powdered sugar, fresh raspberries, whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream for serving, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Grease eight 4-ounce ramekins with plant based margarine, then dust with gluten free 1:1 flour.  Shake out any excess flour.  Place on a baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. In a large microwave proof measuring cup or bowl (8 cups), microwave the chocolate chips and margarine for 30 seconds.  Stir.  Repeat at 30 second increments until the chocolate and margarine are completely melted and homogenous.
  4. Place the eggs, sugar and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer.  Beat, using a whisk attachment, until the mixture is pale yellow and thickened.
  5. Gently fold in the melted chocolate and flour into the eggs.
  6. Spoon the batter evenly into the ramekins. 
  7. Bake for 10 minutes.  The cakes will not look like they’re set.  
  8. Allow the cakes to rest for 5 minutes.  Serve immediately in the ramekins, or invert onto plates.
  9. Dust with powdered sugar and serve garnished with fresh fruit, ice cream and/or whipped cream and fruit coulis on the side.


You can prepare these cakes in advance and store them covered, in the refrigerator.  Before baking, bring them to room temperature and bake for 10 minutes at 400°F, following the remaining of the recipe directions.
