Active Time: 45 minutes, 30 minutes prep, 14 minutes cook.
Start to Finish: 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease 6 ramekins (6-ounce each).
Melt both chocolates and butter together (either in the microwave or using a double boiler). Sift flour and sugar and add to the chocolate mixture. Add eggs and yolks and stir mixture until smooth. Next stir in the vanilla extract and orange liqueur.
Pour the mixture evenly into the ramekins. Bake ramekins in the preheated oven for 14 minutes, or until the edges are firm but the center remains runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen the cakes, and turn upside down onto dessert plates and tap to release each cake.
Serve immediately, while chocolate centers remain hot. Can also dust finished cakes with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream and berries, or another preferred topping.
