Chocolate Molten Cake

One of my favorite things about the cruises we take is the food of course, but the Chocolate Molten Cake is on a whole different level.  It is heaven in a ramekin....  These were good but for some reason mine didn't have the ooey gooey center that the ones on the boat have.  I cooked these for 14 minutes but I think next time I will cut that down to about 12 and see how they turn out then.

8oz Bittersweet chocolate
8 tablespoon butter (1 stick)
plus more for ramekins
3 eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Generously butter four 6 ounce ramekins.
Place the prepared molds on a baking sheet and set aside.
Melt the chocolates and butter in a double boiler.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until pale (about two minutes).
Beat in the vanilla.
Stir in the egg mixture into the chocolate and then add the flour.
Mix well.
Divide the batter among the prepared ramekins and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, the edges should be firm and set but the center will still look a little wet.
Serve immediately with vanilla bean ice cream.
You can serve them in the ramekins or run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.
