  • 2 oz dark chocolate
  • 2 oz milk chocolate
  • 5 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoons rum


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly spray or butter 3 " 6 ounce" or 4 "4 ounce" custard cups or small ramekins with cooking spray or butter.
  2. Combine the chocolate and butter in a medium bowl, then microwave. If microwave is not your thing then melt in a double broiler over medium heat stirring occasionally until melted.
  3. Whisk in the flour and sugar into the chocolate mixture, making sure everything is incorporated
  4. Stir in the eggs until everything is even and smooth. Add the nutmeg, rum, and vanilla extract. Mix well, scrape down the sides
  5. Divide the mixture evenly among the custard cups. Bake for at least 8 -10 minutes. The cakes will rise slightly and will wiggle if you shake the pan slightly
  6. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.
  7. Serve warm with ice-cream, whipped cream
