Introduction: Mocha Fudge Cakes

Picture of Mocha Fudge Cakes

It's rich. It's fudgy. It's coffee and chocolate and whipped cream. And perhaps just a tad weird to make (But fantastically worth it). It's Mocha Fudge cake, served in an individual ramekin. Perfect for anything from a splurging snack or pair it with some raspberries for a romantic evening. Either way, what's not to love?

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need

For the Batter:
1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 packet instant coffee
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon oil (I used grape seed because it's what I had on hand, but you could use whatever)

For the Top:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 Packet instant coffee
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
3/4 cup boiling water

For Whipped Cream:
1/2 cup cream
1 tablespoon sugar (or more to taste)
the remaining half packet of coffee (optional)

Step 2: Dry Ingredients

Step 3: Wet Ingredients

Add the milk and oil. Stir until it comes together in a thick batter.

Step 4: Topping

Add the brown sugar, 1/2 packet of instant coffee, and the last tablespoon of cocoa into a bowl and mix well.

Step 5: Fill

Divide the batter between 4, 4 ounce oven proof ramekins. Sprinkle all the brown sugar mixture over that. Then poor the hot water evenly over that. (I know it feels wrong to poor water on your beautiful batter, but trust me, it turns out)

Step 6: Bake

Put in a 350 degree Fahrenheit degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the dough has risen to the top and is not sticky to the touch. (The toothpick method does not work here). Mine bubbled over a bit, and if you want you can take a wet rag and wipe off the edges.

Step 7: Whipped Cream

Whip the cream until it forms stiff peaks. Add the sugar. If you want you can fold in the rest of the coffee packet if you want, like I did for my pictures, but I found that it made it really strong. So maybe try a little and then add more to your personal taste.

Step 8: Eat!

Top the cakes with a dollop of whipped cream, break the cake with a spoon and dip way down to the pudding-like bottom, getting a little bit of everything on your spoon. Take a few moments to realize how crazy good it is, and then finish.

I hope you enjoy!

How many grams is your instant powder?

Sporkette (author)ikarthik2013-06-28

I couldn't find the answer when I went to look for it, but as long as you presume that 1 packet = however much your instant coffee says to use for 1 cup, you should be good
