Prep:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. In a pan over very low heat, stir chocolate chips and butter until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour.
  3. Fill six buttered, floured ramekins about halfway. Press a marshmallow into the center of the batter in each ramekin. Spoon remaining batter equally over marshmallows, completely covering.
  4. Bake in the center the preheated oven until tops are puffed up and crackly, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool about 10 minutes, then run a knife along inside of ramekins and invert to release cakes. Place right side up on plates. Sprinkle tops with icing sugar, if desired. Serve warm.

This turned out fine but I must have over baked it because all evidence of a marshmallow were gone. Still a rich and pretty treat. Thanks for sharing. - 06 Jan 2015


I haven't made these but they sound great. What size marshmallows. Mini ones or the ones you can toast around a fire on a stick? - 15 May 2014
