Grand Velas Chocolate Fondant

Grand Velas Riviera Nayat, Mexico, a Five-Star Leading Hotel of the World
The chefs at Grand Velas Riviera Nayat's French restaurant, Piaf, whipped up this chocolate treat for Valentine's Day but I think it would be perfect for any day of the year.

Grand Velas  Riviera Nayat Piaf Chocolate Fondant

9 oz. dark chocolate
8 oz. butter
4.5 oz sugar
4.5 oz. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
5 eggs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly butter the inside of ramekins and dust with powdered sugar.

In a medium heatproof bowl combine the chocolate and butter. Set it over but not touching simmering water in a saucepan and melt, stirring often, until smooth and blended.
Stir in the sugar until dissolved.
Incorporate the flour and baking soda into the mixture.
Whisk eggs and add a few at a time, mixing consistently.
Pour the mixture into the ramekins and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Is something you ate away from home still lingering deliciously in your memory? Let me know what, where and when and I'll try to get the recipe so you can taste it again!
