Serves: 2 cake, recipe easily doubles or triplee
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Total Time: about 15 minutes

2 ounces dark chocolate or bittersweet baking chocolate (I used Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Bar; I prefer bars or baking chocolate to chocolate chips)
1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 of 1 stick)
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk (discard white or save for another use)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon instant espresso coffee granules, optional but recommended (doesn't make cakes taste like coffee and serves to enhance the chocolate flavor)
ice cream for serving, optional but recommended
hot fudge for serving (homemade or storebought), optional but recommended
