Combine butter and chopped bittersweet chocolate.
Melt the chocolate/butter in the microwave then combine with sugar, eggs, cocoa and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients.
Blend everything together and divide it into coffee mugs (at least 11 oz size). The recipe that follows is for two servings--I doubled it.
Microwave for 45 seconds at 50% power. Stir and do it again for 45 seconds.
Shove 2 pieces of bittersweet chocolate into the batter. This will create the molten part of the cake. Microwave for another 35 seconds at 50% power.
Let sit for 2 minutes and you have an incredible molten chocolate cake! It's that simple!
Add a little whipped cream if you want and enjoy! They really are delicious!
