Serves 6 | Prep Time 20 | Cook Time 15

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
4 large egg yolks
1/2 cup granulated sugar
14 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
5 large egg whites
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into 1/2-ounce pieces


1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees. Lightly butter six 6-ounce ramekins, dust with sugar and place on a baking sheet.



2. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, lemon rind and poppy seeds; set aside.



3. In the 4-1/2 quart bowl of a heavy-duty electric mixer using the wire whip attachment, whip the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture is pale and forms a ribbon when the whip is lifted.



4. Place the egg whites in a medium grease-free bowl and using a hand-held electric mixer whip the whites to soft peaks.



5. Fold the flour mixture into the yolk/sugar mixture then add the melted butter and gently mix until combined. Fold in the egg whites until combined. Fill each of the prepared ramekins 3/4 full and place a 1-ounce piece of chocolate in the center of the batter. Bake for 15 minutes or until firm. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Gently invert the cake onto a dessert plate and serve warm.
