Chocolate Lava Cake

I posted this on the peanut flour thread, But thought I'd post it for all to see. I am going to make this today.

Mmmmmm, chocolate!

You'd never notice that the recipe uses Peanut flour instead of white flour in this recipe, besides the awesome flavor. The peanut flour creates a soft, dense, fudgy outside with an explosion of chocolaty goodness on the inside.


6 ounces dark chocolate ChocoPerfection Bar or Simply Lite Bar
2 eggs
1/4 cup vanilla almond milk
1 stick unsalted butter
2 egg yolks
1/3 cup Truvia
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup peanut flour

To make centers, melt 2 ounces of chocolate and vanilla almond milk in double boiler. Whisk gently to blend. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm. Form into 6 balls; refrigerate until needed.

To make cake, heat oven to 400°F. Spray six 4-ounce ramekins or custard cups with cooking spray. Melt 4 ounces of chocolate and butter in double boiler; whisk gently to blend. With an electric mixer, whisk eggs, yolks, Truvia, and vanilla on high speed about 5 minutes or until thick and light. Fold melted chocolate mixture and peanut flour into egg mixture just until combined. Spoon cake batter into ramekins. Place a chocolate ball in the middle of each ramekin.

Bake about 15 minutes or until cake is firm to the touch. Let it sit out of the oven for about 5 minutes. Run a small, sharp knife around inside of each ramekin, place a plate on top, invert and remove ramekin. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream. Serves 6.

Nutritional Comparison:
"Ghiradelli Lava Cake" using sugar and cream: 424 calories, 31.8 carbs, 0.2 fiber, 4.9 protein
"Healthified" Lava Cakes: 290 calories, 9.3 carbs, 7.6 fiber, 1.7 effective carbs, 6.9 protein
I think this sounds fantastic and am going to try it, maybe tomorrow. Julie

Barbo, I couldn't find my little ramekins, so I'm going to have to buy some more. Then I'll try it. Made lemon pie instead. Julie
