- 4 tsp. sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, cubed
- 4 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 1/2 tsp. instant coffee granules
- 3/4 tsp. vanilla
- 6 tbsp. all-purpose flour
- whipped cream (optional)
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 27mins
Grease the bottom and sides of four 6 oz. ramekins; sprinkle each with 1 tsp. sugar. Place ramekins on a baking sheet; set aside.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in confectioner's sugar until smooth. Whisk in the eggs, egg yolks, instant coffee and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt; spoon batter into prepared ramekins.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160 degrees and cake sides are set and centers are soft.
Remove ramekins to a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Carefully run a small knife around cakes to loosen. Invert warm cakes onto serving plates. Lift ramekins off cakes. Serve warm with whipped cream or sprinkle with additional confectioner's sugar if desired.
