Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 3 cups water for steaming
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips, plus more for serving
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup cherry pie filling
  • 1 tablespoons thyme, chopped


  • 4 Oven-Safe Ramekins
  • Small Bowl
  • Large Bowl
  • Small Saucepan
  • Step 1

    Pour 3 cups of water in the pot. Spray the ramekins with nonstick spray.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, add the butter and chocolate chips, microwave for 30 seconds and stir to combine. Continue to microwave and stir in 15 second increments until fully melted.

  • Step 3

    In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar together until light in color. Add the chocolate mixture and whisk until fully combined. Add the flour and continue to whisk until smooth.

  • Step 4

    Pour the batter into the prepared ramekins, filling 2/3rds of the way. Place the ramekins in the pot, in the water.

  • Step 5

    Close the lid and move the slider to STEAMCRISP. Select STEAM & BAKE, set temperature to 285°F, and set time to 10 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 20 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 6

    While the cakes bake, prepare the cherry filling. Place a small saucepan over medium heat, add the cherry pie filling and thyme and cook until warmed through.

  • Step 7

    When cooking is complete, remove the ramekins and allow to cool for 3-4 minutes. Top with warm cherry-thyme mixture and extract chocolate chips.
