Mini Fudge Cakes
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 stick (2 oz) butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (I omitted)
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 12 Tbsp warm water
  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, 3 Tbsp cocoa, baking powder and salt (no mixer required).
  2. In a small bowl, mix the milk, melted butter, and vanilla and stir into the flour mixture. If using, fold in the nuts.
  3. Spoon the batter equally across 6 greased ramekins. Place the cups on a baking sheet.
  4. To make the topping, mix the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined. Sprinkle the mixture evenly across the ramekins. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp of warm water on top of each ramekin. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Let the cakes cool for 20 minutes. Use a knife to loosen the sides of the cakes and invert onto a dessert plate. Garnish with whipped cream, raspberries, or the topping of your choice.
