3 egg yolks
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Powdered sugar (optional)

Instructions:

For filling, in a small heavy saucepan combine the 3/4 cup chocolate pieces and whipping cream.
Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate melts.

In a mixing bowl beat eggs, egg yolks, granulated sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed 5 minutes or until lemon-colored.

Sift flour and cocoa powder over mixture; beat on low speed just until combined.
Spoon 1/3 cup batter into dishes.
Place 1 ball of filling into each dish.
Spoon remaining batter into dishes.

Bake in a 400 degree F oven about 13 minutes or until cakes feel firm at edges.

Using a knife, loosen cakes from sides of dishes.
Invert onto dessert plates.
If desired, dust with powdered sugar and garnish with raspberries. Serve immediately. Makes: 6 servings
