DARK CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE – Super gooey and decadent chocolate cake, ideal for parties or dinner


Scale

Ingredients

  • 200g (7 oz), usually one tablet of extra dark chocolate (between 60% and 72%)
  • 48 chocolate squares
  • 1/3 cup of almond or nut oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 50g (1/4 cup) of almond flour
  • Optional: 2 tbsp of sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven at 435F.
  2. Melt chocolate and oil together.
  3. Whip eggs and salt (and sugar) until mixture blanches on high speed.
  4. Add almond flour and mix on medium speed.
  5. Add the cooled chocolate to eggs and mix slowly at low speed.
  6. Pour in 2 large, 4 medium, or 6-8 small molds.
  7. Add 1 chocolate square in the middle of each mold.
  8. Cook for 6 minutes for the small ones and 7-9 minutes for the large ones depending on the size.
  9. (I usually put a timer every minute after 6 minutes to make sure they don’t overcook)

Notes

  1. Freeze well when cooked and can be made a few hours in advance.
  2. Tip: if you make it in advance and are planning to reheat in the oven, undercook for 1 minute so the middle will stay fudgy.
