  • 1 cup butter
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons amaretto
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup raspberry coulis, for garnish (see note)
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream (Ben & Jerry's preferred)


  1. In a double boiler, melt the butter and chocolate. Fold in the amaretto, eggs and egg yolks.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and sugar. Fold into the chocolate mixture just until combined (do not over-mix). Pour the batter into four (each 4 ounces) buttered ramekins, or foil soufflé cups.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F for 17 minutes. The finished cakes should be firm on the outside, but still soft and not set in the center.
  4. Place each one on a dessert plate. Garnish with raspberry sauce and ice cream.

Yield: 4 servings

Raspberry coulis is a strained raspberry sauce. It can be made from fresh or frozen raspberries, sugar and a dash of lemon juice.
