Chocolate Lava Cake

Chocolate. Lava. Cake.

I placed a period after each of those words so you can pause between each one and take a second to fully comprehend the treat that you are in for.

Chocolate on it’s own is divine but a chocolate lava cake that oozes liquid chocolate from it’s center – now that’s pure bliss!

A chocolate lava cake makes for an impressive Valentine’s Day treat but it is so easy to make. Would you believe that all it takes to make two individual ooey-gooey molten chocolate cakes is a handful of ingredients you probably already have in the pantry and about 10 minutes in the oven.
Top off your chocolate lava cakes with whipped cream, fresh berries or a sprinkle of powdered sugar and you have a seemingly gourmet dessert ready to share with your Valentine.

Ingredients
  1. 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil (or butter)
  2. 1/4 Cup Chocolate Baking Chips (I used bittersweet 60% cacao but you can use your favorite)
  3. 1 Large Egg
  4. 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  5. 3 Tablespoons Oat Flour* (or all-purpose flour)
  6. 1 Teaspoon Coffee Liquor (or vanilla extract)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Thoroughly grease two small ramekins and set aside.
  3. In a microwavable bowl, heat chocolate chips and coconut oil for 1 minute.
  4. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add more time in 30 second increments, if necessary.
  5. Add in the egg and beat until smooth.
  6. Stir in the powdered sugar, followed by the flour and coffee liquor.
  7. Once everything is thoroughly combined, evenly distribute the mixture between the two greased ramekins.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes. The center will remain soft and jiggly and the edges should puff up slightly.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 1 minute.
  10. Place each ramekin upside down on a plate and allow them to fall out. (You may need to use a knife around the edges and gently tap the bottom)
  11. Top with berries, powdered sugar or whipped cream and enjoy!
Notes
  1. *Make your own oat flour by grinding up old fashioned oats in a blender or spice grinder. Make sure to grind until you have a fine powder.
