DARK CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE – Super gooey and decadent chocolate cake, ideal for parties or dinner
Extra chocolate lava cake are by far my classic go-to dessert for any event, any dinner and any craving! Those chocolate lava cakes are so delicious and melt so much in you mouth, you can’t even stop eating them! It’s very dangerous!
How to make my lava cakes:
Personally, I don’t think sugar is necessary in this recipe. Your chocolate is already sweet enough if you use one from 50% to 70%. It all depends of your taste. If you like very sweet desserts, then I recommend adding the spoons of sugar. If you are like us and on a sugar detox, you’ll enjoy not having added sugar in your lava cakes.
Moreover, I would recommend using 4 medium molds (I used small ones to make minis on my picture) if you want them super super lava. After baking them, let them cool for a few minutes. They will become harder. Other wise they’ll fall apart.
Also if you want to freeze them or eat them another time, undercook them of 1 minute!
- 200g (7 oz), usually one tablet of extra dark chocolate (between 60% and 72%)
- 1/3 cup of almond or nut oil
- 4 eggs
- 50g (1/4 cup) of almond flour
- Optional: 2 tbsp of sugar
- Pre heat oven at 435F.
- Melt chocolate and oil.
- Whip eggs (and sugar) until mixture blanches.
- Add cooled chocolate to eggs and mix slowly.
- Add delicately almond flour.
- Pour in 2 large, 4 medium or 6 small molds.
- Cook for 6 minutes for the small ones and 7-10 minutes for the large ones depending of the size. (I usually put a timer every minute after 6 minutes to make sure they don’t overcook)
- Freeze well and can be made a few hours in advance.
