4 ounces 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bar

2 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt butter and chocolate in double boiler. Whip eggs, yolks, sugar, and vanilla with a mixer for about 10 minutes on high speed. Fold melted chocolate and butter into the egg mixture. Fold in flour just until combined. Butter and sugar four 6-ounce ramekins, then spoon mixture into ramekins. Bake at 450°F for about 9–10 minutes.
