Molten Lava Cakes By

Okay, so our “no-gluten, no-dairy, no-sugar” diet hasn’t been going to great lately. Obviously! :) Molten Lava Cakes…. they are healthy…. really they are! Chocolate is full of antioxidants and I hear it is a belly flattener. :D

Okay, so these are dangerously delicious and really quick to prepare. A chocolate cake that has a slightly gooey center. Serve hot with ice-cream and you have the world’s best and quickest desert! I usually have to make 14 little cakes to satisfy my family but I have revised the recipe to make 6 generous Lava Cakes. (:

Original Recipe Yield 6 cakes


  • unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 6 oz semi-sweet (or dark) chocolate chips
  • 1/2cup plus 2tbs butter
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 3 egg yokes
  • 1 1/2 cup powder sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • dash salt


  1. Heat oven to 450° F. Grease bottoms and sides of 6 (6oz) custard cups or mason jars with butter. Dust with cocoa powder. In a sauce pan, melt butter and chocolate chips. Allow to cool slightly.
  2. In large bowl, beat whole eggs and egg yolks with wire whisk or eggbeater until well blended. Beat in 1 1/2 cup powder sugar. Beat in melted chocolate mixture, flour, salt, and vanilla. Divide batter evenly between cups. I find an icecream scoop works wonderfully for this!
  3. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until sides are set and centers are still soft(top will puff and crack.) Let stand for 3 minutes but NO LONGER! :) They are best warm.
  4. Serve with icecream and ENJOY!
