  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Butter 6 (6-ounce) custard cups or soufflé dishes. Place on baking sheet.

  • Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwavable bowl on HIGH 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir with wire whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in hazelnut flavor. Stir in 1 cup of the sugar until well blended. Whisk in eggs and yolk. Stir in flour and cinnamon. Pour batter into prepared custard cups.

  • Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until sides are firm but centers are soft. Meanwhile, beat cream and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until firm peaks form. Refrigerate whipped cream until ready to serve.

  • Remove molten cakes from oven. Let stand 1 minute. Carefully loosen edges with small knife. Invert cakes onto serving plates. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired. Serve immediately with whipped cream.
