Famous Mocha Java Cakes
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup butter

- 4 egg yolks
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon instant espresso or instant coffee granules

1. Preheat oven to 425°. Grease 6 (6-oz.) ramekins or individual soufflé dishes with 1 Tbsp. butter.
2. Microwave 1 cup butter and chocolate morsels in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 2 minutes or until chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth, whisking at 1-minute intervals.
3. Beat egg yolks and eggs at medium speed with an electric mixer 1 minute. Gradually add chocolate mixture, beating at low speed until well blended.
4. Sift together sugar and next 3 ingredients. Gradually whisk sugar mixture into chocolate mixture until well blended. Divide batter among prepared ramekins. Place ramekins in a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.
5. Bake at 425° for 16 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into cakes registers 165°. Remove from oven, and let stand 10 minutes. Run a knife around the outer edge of each cake to loosen. Carefully invert cakes onto dessert plates. Garnish, if desired.
