I'm a bit light on outfit posts thanks to the recent snowstorms so I thought I would re-share this recipe for Nigella Lawson's Chocohotopots that I first posted back in 2012. Chocohotopots have been one of my favorite desserts for as long as I can remember. It's simple, quick and the perfect portion. I've introduced it to quite a few friends over the years and I even brought my own ramekins when I visited a friend in DC so we could make them. As I'm sure you've seen on my Instagram, I make them quite often!


  • 1 stick unsalted butter (I'm lazy and use salted and it tastes just fine)
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) semisweet chocolate, with 60 percent cocoa solids
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar (again, I'm lazy so I use regular sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Special equipment: 4 (2/3 to 1-cup capacity) ramekins
  1. Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
  2. Butter the ramekins (not from the full stick) or use non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate and 1 stick butter together, then set aside to cool a little.
  4. Mix the eggs with the sugar and flour with a hand whisk and beat in the cooled butter/chocolate mixture. 
  5. Divide the mixture between the 4 buttered ramekins. 
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, by which time the tops will be cooked and cracked and the chocolate gooey underneath.
  7. Let cool and enjoy!!! :D

Some more looks at the finished product because who doesn't love a good Instagram?

  1. My mom and I were all set to make these on Valentine's Day for a little treat, but then she decided to get all bothered by the fact that each portion has two tablespoons of butter in it, so we made a chocolate cake instead. But still, they are soo good, and what is so bad about butter anyway?

  2. We made some a few weeks back... it was SOOOOO good !
