1 1/2 teaspoons instant espresso powder

4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet
chocolate, chopped
Two 8-ounces packages cream cheese,
room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup frozen orange juice

2 tablespoons coffee liqueur
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
3 large eggs

1 1/2 cups sour cream
6 tablespoons (packed)
confectioner's sugar
4 teaspoons instant espresso powder

center and slightly puffed at edges, about 45 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes. Maintain oven temperature.
For topping: 
Mix sour cream, confectioner's sugar and espresso powder
in small bowl until espresso powder dissolves. Spread over hot cake. Pipe reserved 1/3 cup cake batter in parallel stripes (about 1/2 inch apart) over topping. Bake cake until topping is set, about 5 minutes. Cut around pan
