|My Double Boiler
You just need a small pan and a smaller pan.
The heavy cream ant the 2 ounces of chips melting.
The center melted & cooled.
For the cake you will need:
4 ounces (2/3 cup) Semi-Sweet or Bittersweet Chocolate Chips or squares.
1/2 cup (120 g) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 large whole eggs
2 large egg yolks
1/3 cup (80 g) granulated white sugar
1/2 teaspoon (3 ml) pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup (60 g) all purpose flour
To make the cakes, in the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water, melt the 4 ounces of chocolate and the butter, stirring occasionally until smooth.
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, whisk the whole eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla on high speed for about 5 minutes, or until thick and light.

light. Fold the melted chocolate mixture and flour into the egg mixture just until combined.
Spoon the cake batter into the pan 3/4 full.
Place a chocolate ball in the middle of each section.
Cover the center with remaining batter.
Bake until cake is firm to the touch.
Let set to cool for 5 minutes then run a knife carefully between the cake and the pan. I put a plate on the cake then flipped the pan. This is why I suggested baking one or two at a time. The flipping can be difficult if making several. Give yourself a break and just make one at a time.
