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
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.

I have got to say this is the BEST recipe for Lava Cake I have yet to try!
Even newbie LCer DBF has asked for this as his birthday treat! I love licking the bowl and beaters on this one!
A man asked Gautama Buddha, "I want happiness." Buddha said, "First remove "I," that's Ego, then remove "want," that's Desire. See now you are left with only "Happiness.”

Never dim your light for others,
shine as bright as you can
so they too may be interested
in the origin of your Light.
