Chocolate Lava Cakes (v)

Prep Time 5 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes

Makes 2


4 tbsp. Cocoa Powder

30ml Extra Thick Double Cream

2 Medium Eggs

1 tbsp. Granulated Stevia

½ tsp Vanilla Extract

½ tsp Baking Powder

5g Butter, for greasing the ramekins


Preparation Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan (390°F/350°F fan) and use the butter to grease two ramekins.
  2. Mix together the cocoa powder, stevia and baking powder in a bowl then set aside. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs until light and fluffy – the aeration of the eggs will help the cake to rise.
  3. Use a spatula to fold in the double cream, vanilla extract and whisked eggs with the dry ingredients.
  4. Pour the mixture into the two ramekins and then bake for 8-10 minutes. Be careful not to overbake, you want the top of the cake to be set but the centre to remain slightly gooey!
