i know you guys laugh at paula but this is pretty good. made the following modifications:
1. omitted orange liqueur
2. used unsweetened instead of bittersweet chocolate
3. used a few spoonfuls less sugar.
i made the batter ahead of time and spooned it into the ramekins. put them into the fridge until i was ready to bake. let them sit out ~15 minutes before baking. didn't invert the ramekins before serving since i am a lazy sack. hope you guys like this.

Recipe courtesy Paula DeenRecipe Summary
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 14 minutes
Yield: 6 cakes
6 (1-ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
2 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
10 tablespoons (1 1/4 stick) butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 large eggs
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange liqueur
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Grease 6 (6-ounce) custard cups. Melt the chocolates and butter in the microwave, or in a double boiler. Add the flour and sugar to chocolate mixture. Stir in the eggs and yolks until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and orange liqueur. Divide the batter evenly among the custard cups. Place in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.
