French Roast Chocolate Pudding Cakes
Serves: 24 / Prep: 15 mins / Cook: 20 mins
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ cups cocoa, unsweetened, Dutch process
3 tsps baking powder
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 cup sugar
1 ¼ cups dark brown sugar, tightly packed and separated
1 ½ cups whole milk
1 ½ sticks butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 ½ tbsps vanilla extract
Optional: vanilla ice cream as side garnish
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper muffin cups in two 12-cup muffin pans. In a medium bowl, combine flour, 1 cup of cocoa, baking powder and salt. Whisk to remove lumps.
- In a separate bowl, combine sugar, 1 cup of brown sugar, brewed coffee (cooled), milk, eggs, butter and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth (some lumps will remain).
- Combine the wet and dry mixtures, mixing well.
- Transfer batter to the cupcake pans, filling them ¾ full. In a small bowl, mix ¼ cup of cocoa and ¼ cup of brown sugar together. Sprinkle a tablespoon over each cake and place pans in the oven to bake them for 20 minutes. The cake’s edges should be crisp, but the middle should be very soft – similar to pudding. Cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream as a side garnish.
