Yields 4, 1 per serving

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

1. Preheat air fryer to 350°F. Spray four 4" ramekins with cooking spray.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla, and salt until well combined.

3. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate chips in 20-second intervals, stirring between each interval until mixture is smooth and fully melted, about 1 minute.

4. Slowly pour in bowl with egg mixture and stir until fully incorporated. Add flour and whisk until completely smooth. The mixture should be easily pourable. Divide batter evenly among ramekins.

5. Place ramekins into air fryer basket. Bake 7 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes, then use a butter knife to loosen sides of cakes from ramekins.

6. To serve, place a small dessert plate upside down on top of each ramekin. Quickly flip ramekin and plate upside down so cake drops to the plate. Let cool 5 minutes, then serve.
