1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a small saucepan, heat the chocolate and butter over medium heat until melted.

3. Remove from heat and mix in the salt and flour.

4. Using a hand mixer, beat the eggs in a large bowl and slowly add sugar. Beat until the mixture is pale.

5. Pour the chocolate into the egg mixture, slowly folding the chocolate in. Chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

6. Pour chilled batter into individual ramekins and bake for about 8-10 minutes. The tops should be a little jiggly. Be sure not to over-bake the cakes, even if they don鈥檛聽look ready on top. When serving, run a knife around the edges and invert onto a small plate.
