Chocolate-Espresso Lava Cakes with Espresso Whipped Cream

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 teaspoons instant espresso powder or instant coffee powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, melted
  • 1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 12 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips (about 4 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 cup chilled whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Recipe Preparation

  • Sift flour, cocoa powder, 5 teaspoons espresso powder, and baking powder into medium bowl. Place butter in large bowl; add both sugars and whisk until well blended. Whisk in eggs 1 at a time, then vanilla and almond extracts. Whisk in dry ingredients. Divide batter among six 1-cup ovenproof coffee mugs (about 2/3 cup in each). Top each with 2 tablespoons chocolate chips. Gently press chips into batter. Cover and refrigerate mugs at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.

  • Combine cream, powdered sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon espresso powder in medium bowl; whisk until peaks form. Chill up to 1 hour.

  • Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F. Let mugs with batter stand at room temperature 5 minutes. Bake uncovered until cakes are puffed and crusty and tester inserted into center comes out with thick batter attached, about 30 minutes. Cool cakes 5 minutes. Top hot cakes with espresso whipped cream and serve.
