  • ½ cup sugar 100g
  • cup butter, cubed soft
  • cup dark chocolate 100g
  • cup flour 80g


  • Pre-heat the oven at 350F.
  • Prepare all your ingredients.
  • Break the eggs and add the sugar.
  • Mix until smooth and becomes lighter.
  • Melt and add the butter.
  • Mix well. Melt the chocolate in a water bath or 30 secondes at a time in the microwave (stir between each time)
  • Add in the melted chocolate and stir well.
  • Add the flour and mix well so there are no lump.
  • In buttered small dishes (mine are 3' large and 1 inch and half tall), I also powdered some flour and dumped the excess. Pour your mixture.
  • Bake for 14 minutes and 2 minutes more as needed (and 2 more) until the tip of the knife comes out clean from the edge of the dish. Serve right away with some fruits or some ice cream.
