The day before
- 5 eggs, plus 5 extra yolks
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 9 ounces good-quality bittersweet dark chocolate, broken up
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, plus a little extra for greasing molds
- scant 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
In a bowl, beat together the eggs, egg yolks and sugar until pale.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate and butter gently in a bowl set over a pan of hot water. Remove from the heat. Slowly add to the egg mixture, beating until smooth. Fold in the flour.
Pour into buttered 5-ounce molds before it begins to firm up. Chill overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the centers dome and feel dry (check regularly). Unmold and serve.
