  1. Line 2 espresso cups or 2 small ramekins with softened butter followed by cocoa powder. Ensure all sides are coated with the cocoa.

  2. In a large bowl, stir together the melted butter and melted chocolate until fully combined and smooth.

  3. Stir in the espresso powder, followed by the water. Stir in the egg yolk. Add in icing sugar then stir until combined and smooth.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg white until soft peaks form. Gradually add the caster sugar and whisk until stiff peaks form and they become glossy.

  5. Fold 2 tablespoons of the whipped egg whites into the chocolate mixture and fold until fully incorporated. Gradually fold in the remaining whipped egg whites. Be careful not to over stir.
