Makes one 9 inch chocolate cake with nutty fudge topping. Substitute your favorite nuts for the pecans in the topping and garnish.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch round pan and line bottom with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl stir together flour, 3/4 cup sugar, cocoa, instant coffee, baking soda and salt. Beat in 1/2 cup softened butter, sour cream, egg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pan, then turn out onto a wire rack. Gently peel off parchment paper. Cool completely.
  • To make the Fudge Nut Glaze: In a small saucepan combine cream, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, corn syrup, chocolate chips. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Continue to cook stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool 10 minutes. Stir in nuts and vanilla.
  • Place cake on serving plate. Pour glaze evenly over cake, allowing some to run down sides. Arrange nuts on top. Refrigerate until glaze is firm, about 1 hour.
