Holy Yum Batman!! Mini Hot Fudge Cakes!

 First, prep your ramekins with a little cooking spray.

Then mix up some tasty ingredients:

Then cook 'em.
When they are done, take them out of the oven and admire them.

Then, of course, devour them right up.

Holy cow these were really delicious. Excellent chocolate flavor! Not overly sweet, but sweet enough for the hubby who is not fond of semi-sweet, bitter-sweet or anything less than sweet. Sort of like a brownie, but even better. Mmmmmm!

But don't take my word for it. Make some for yourself. Here's the recipe:  

Mini Hot Fudge Cakes

3/4 cup flour

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp instant coffee powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup semi sweet or dark chocolate, finely chopped
2 tbsp powdered sugar

Sift together flour, cocoa, coffee powder, baking powder and salt.

In a large bowl, beat the butter with a mixer at medium speed about 1 minute. Add granulated and brown sugars, and beat until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until well blended.

Fold flour mixture into sugar mixture. Fold in chocolate.

Divide batter evenly among 10 4-oz ramekins. Arrange ramekins on a jelly-roll pan. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or up to 2 days.

Preheat oven to 350.

Let ramekins stand at room temperature 10 minutes. Uncover and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until puffy and slightly crusty on top. Sprinkle evenly with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.

Makes 10 servings.
