2 medium eggs

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease 6 2-inch molds or ramekins with butter. Place on a baking sheet.

3

 Stir in sugar until well blended.

 

4

 Blend in eggs and egg yolks with a wire whisk.

 

5

 Stir in flour. Divide batter among prepared molds.

 

Bake for 18 minutes or until sides are firm but centers are soft. (Timing is critical to get a gooey center. Make sure to initially set a timer for 18 minutes. Increase by 1 minute at a time if cakes are not yet done. Remove cakes from oven when the sides are set and the center is still a bit wet but not runny.)

 

7

 Let stand for 1 minute. Carefully run a small knife around cakes to loosen. Invert cakes onto dessert dishes. Serve immediately, topped with a whipped topping or ice cream.
