Here is the recipe Kirk Leins used. This is NOT a low-cal, low-fat, or low-carb dessert. This is pure confectionary firepower, the likes of which you rarely experience. Enjoy!

The following recipe serves 6:


  • Vegetable spray
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 4 large whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 pound high-quality, bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cake flour (plus more for dusting)
  • Powder sugar for dusting


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using vegetable spray, grease (6) 6-ounce ramekins and dust with cake flour.

2 In the top of a double boiler, melt butter and chocolate. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar, whole eggs, and egg yolks. Whisk in the cake flour.

3 Evenly distribute the batter among the 6 ramekins. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the sides of the cakes are set (but the center still jiggles).

4 Let the cakes cool for 2-3 minutes, then run a thin knife around the sides and invert onto plates. Garnish with powder sugar and serve with either vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

  1. Chocolate says:

    The reason that chocolate improves sexual function and increases sex drive is due to chocolate’s properties. Containing serotonin, which is a chemical that calms the mind and is produced by the brain, chocolate is like taking a mild sedative. Caffeine is found in chocolate in very small amounts and caffeine helps to raise serotonin. The chemical serotonin is often associated with the same effects as marijuana.
