Quick easy chocolate dessert

This gooey chocolaty dessert is so easy to make in the microwave using coffee cups, hence the name.  We love this recipe and it is very rich.

THREE MINUTE CHOCOLATE ‘CUP’ CAKES

8 ounces room temperature butter, cubed
8 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
4 eggs
vanilla ice cream

Melt the butter and chocolate together in a glass bowl set over a double boiler, or for 60 seconds in the microwave.  In another bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and eggs.  Whisk in the melted chocolate mixture.  Divide among 4 large or 6 medium coffee cups.  Microwave for 50 seconds to 2 minutes on high, depending on the number of cakes, the power of your microwave, and how gooey you like your cakes.  Let cool for 30 seconds.  Top with ice cream, chocolate syrup, and serve warm.
