Other: 2 Hours, 5 Minutes


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup egg substitute
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup (6-ounce package) semisweet chocolate morsels


  1. Sift together flour, cocoa, and baking powder in a medium bowl; set aside.
  2. Whisk together butter and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients; combine well. Spoon batter into 8 lightly greased 6-ounce custard cups or ramekins. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons morsels. Cover and chill at least 2 hours. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 22 minutes. (Edges will be set and centers will be soft.) Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  3. Note: To eliminate the risk of salmonella contamination, this recipe uses egg substitute instead of real eggs because the cakes aren't in the oven long enough for eggs to cook thoroughly.
