  • FROZEN CHOCOLATE (recipe follows)
  • 2 teaspoons powdered instant coffee
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) plus 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • MOCHA CREAM (recipe follows)
  • Powdered sugar



2. Heat oven to 425°F. Butter sides and bottom of four (6-oz.) ramekins. Place on baking sheet.

3. Dissolve instant coffee in water; set aside. Stir together flour, cocoa and salt; set aside.

4. Beat butter in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Set aside 1 tablespoon granulated sugar; gradually beat in remaining granulated sugar, vanilla and dissolved coffee, beating thoroughly.

5. Separate egg yolks from the egg whites. One at a time, add egg yolks to butter mixture, beating well after each addition.

6. In separate bowl, beat egg whites at low speed until frothy. Gradually increasing to high speed, beat the whites until soft peaks start to form. Add remaining tablespoon granulated sugar, one teaspoon at a time, beating until stiff, shiny peaks form.

7. Fold one third of the cocoa mixture and one-third of the egg whites into the butter mixture. One half at a time, gently fold remaining cocoa mixture and egg whites into mixture.

8. Spoon about 2/3 cup batter into each ramekin. Place heaping teaspoon FROZEN CHOCOLATE mixture on center of each batter-filled ramekin. Spoon about 1/4 cup of remaining batter over FROZEN CHOCOLATE making sure to cover completely.

9. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until tops have started to crack.

10. While cakes are baking, reheat remaining FROZEN CHOCOLATE and make MOCHA CREAM.

11. To serve, carefully invert cake onto large dinner plate. Spoon MOCHA CREAM around base of cake; dust with powdered sugar. Garnish as desired. Serve immediately with the warmed chocolate sauce. 4 individual (6-oz.) cakes.

    The recipe was good. It is very rich! You might note that while a 6 oz ramekin looks small the cake is really really filling and most of my family couldn't finish their serving. For a molten cake recipe this is one of the best ones I've found.
