Definitely worth making. My family and I loved it. My only critique is that it was a little too sweet and too chocolatey. And its definitely meant to be eaten in three or four bites because it has such a strong taste.

- To prepare cakes, coat 12 (6-ounce) ramekins with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Set aside.

- Preheat oven to 325°.
- Place 1 cup granulated sugar and butter in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Add cooled chocolate mixture; beat until blended. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Stir into chocolate mixture.
- Place cream of tartar and egg whites in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Gently stir one-fourth egg white mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture. Spoon into prepared ramekins.
