Enjoy the 4,000+ Low Carb Recipes!!!
These taste just like the low carb chocolate lava cakes at Ruby Tuesdays.
NOTE: The original recipe calls for 4 custard cups. These are incredibly rich and it is hard to finish one custard cup when divided into 4 servings. In the future, when I make this, I will divide into 6 smaller custard cups and bake for 11-13 minutes or until done.
4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate squares
1/2 Cup butter (I used salted)
1 1/4 Cup powdered sweetener (I used Splenda, erythritol, and xylitol and put in blender till powdered)
2 egg yolks
6 Tbsp. Carbquik (though I'd guess that other LC bake mixes would work too)
Whipped Cream to top
How To Prepare:
Preheat oven to 425. Butter 4 custard cups (3/4 cup) and place on baking sheet (I sprayed the cups with Pam).
In large microwavable bowl, cook butter and chocolate squares on high 1 minute or until butter is completely melted. Remove from microwave and stir with wire whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in powdered sweetener until well blended. Whisk in eggs and egg yolks until well blended. Stir in Carbquik until well blended. Divide batter evenly between custard cups.
Bake 13-15 minutes, or until sides are firm, but center is soft. Let stand 1 minute. Carefully run knife around cakes to loosen and then turn out onto plate. Top with whipped cream.
