Place dark chocolate in the glass bowl and use a rubber spatula to mix. Be sure to keep the water at a simmer, and melt until nice and smooth. Slowly drizzle in heavy cream and stir.

Fill each ramekin a little under halfway with your cake mixture.

9.

Remove the chocolate ganache from the freezer and place 1-2 Tbsp into the center of the cake mixture. Fill ramekins the rest of the cake batter.

10.

Preheat your oven to 425° F and bake for 11 minutes.

11.

While that’s baking quarter some strawberries and set aside.

12.

Remove cake ramekins from oven and place on a cooling rack. Run a knife around the edge of each cake to help release them from their ramekin.

13.

Place a plate on top of the ramekin, flip over so the ramekin is on top, and slowly lift up to make sure the cake is in tact.

14.

Plate with some whipped cream, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, strawberries and blueberries.
