- Preheat the oven to 200 degree. Grease the ramekins with butter and keep it ready.
- In another bowl, combine egg, sugar and vanilla essence till pale (for about 3 - 4 minutes). To this add all purpose flour and combine well.
- Now add the melted chocolate to the egg mixture and combine well. Pour this mixture to the greased ramekins (fill it till ¾ of the cups). Keep the ramekins in a baking pan and bake it in the preheated oven for about 14 - 17 minutes (till the upper part and the sides are firm and it jiggles when u shake slowly).
- Take it out of the oven and let it sit for a minute. Run a knife around the cake, cover it with a serving plate and turn it upside down to move the cake easily to the serving plate. Dust it with powdered sugar, top it with strawberry and serve immediately.
