Nutella Molten Cakes

Serves 6
Nutella Molten Cakes


1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
3 room-temperature eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules (optional)
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup Nutella


Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a small bowl, combine the cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon of the flour. Grease 6, 6-ounce ramekins. Dust the ramekins with the cocoa mixture. Place ramekins on a baking sheet and set aside. In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and the butter. Heat in the microwave, stirring at 30 second increments, until mixture is smooth. In a medium bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the eggs, sugar, vanilla, coffee granules and salt. Beat with a mixer on high for 3 minutes, or until the eggs become pale yellow and fluffy. Gently fold the chocolate/butter mixture into the eggs. Fold in the remaining 1/4 cup of flour. Fill each ramekin half way with batter. Place a dollop (about 2 teaspoons) of Nutella into the center of each ramekin. Cover with the remaining batter. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a small knife around the inside of the ramekins to loosen. Invert cakes onto serving plates. Serve hot, topped with ice cream.
