Saucy-Center Mocha Cakes
15 min
30 min



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


Powdered sugar

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

How to make

  1. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 5

    Invert cakes onto individual serving plates. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired.

Tip #1

- 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.

Tip #2

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

Tip #3

- This dessert can also be served with ice cream.

These wonderful little cakes are so elegant. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. Everyone raved about them. Will certainly be making these often during the upcoming holidays.
