  • 1 cup  unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup  sugar
  • 1/2 cup  dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup  unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup  2% milk
  • 1/2 cup  unsweetened applesauce

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . Whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking soda in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, whisk together egg, milk, applesauce, vegetable oil, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract and sea salt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and gradually whisk in egg mixture until smooth; divide batter among eight oven-safe mugs or ramekins. Break bittersweet chocolate into 8 pieces and press gently into the center of each mug. Bake 20 minutes or microwave one at a time until puffed and just set in the center, 35 to 40 seconds. Dust with powdered sugar if desired and serve warm.

Do the Nutritional facts have the sugar content - it seems to be missing? Or am I incorrect? I like to look at fat content and sugar content as even though fat may be low if it is super high in sugar it is just as bad.

Great recipe. However, I recommend one ingredient change. Substitute unsweetened pure almond milk for the 2%. Almond milk contains 50% more calcium than dairy milk and is only 30 calories a cup vs 2% at 122 calories a cup. Almond milk works great in any recipe that calls for milk.

The cake part was moist and chocolaty, and the filling was gooey! I only had bittersweet baking chips, so I wasn't sure what "1 oz" of those looked like. I think I probably could have added more. In addition, note that it should be 1-cup ramekins (I only had 2-cup ones, which means now I'll have to share). It would have been nice if that had been listed in the recipe. Also, it required every single measuring cup size and has a lot of measurements. In my opinion, though, totally worth it!
