Ingredients

Cake

6 tablespoons
Land O Lakes® Butter
1 cup
real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons
instant coffee granules
3
large Land O Lakes® Eggs
1/2 cup
sugar
2 tablespoons
all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon
vanilla

Topping

Powdered sugar
Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream, sweetened, whipped, if desired

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease and lightly flour six (5 or 6-ounce) glass custard cups. Place onto ungreased baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. Melt butter, chocolate chips and coffee granules in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Beat eggs in bowl at high speed until slightly thickened and lemon-colored. Continue beating, gradually adding sugar, until light and fluffy. Add melted chocolate, flour and vanilla. Beat at low speed just until mixed.
  4. Pour batter evenly among prepared cups. Bake 9-13 minutes or until top is puffy and crackled in appearance, but center is still soft. Cool 5 minutes; loosen cakes with knife.
  5. Invert cakes onto individual serving plates. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired.

Recipe Tips

- Batter can be prepared several hours ahead. Bake just before serving. Cover and refrigerate if more than 1 hour. Allow to stand at room temperature at least 15 minutes to warm slightly before baking.

- To easily sift powdered sugar, place sugar in small strainer. Gently tap strainer to allow the sugar to fall through openings onto cakes.

- This dessert can also be served with ice cream.
