How to Make Low Carb Chocolate Lava Cakes
Chocolate Lava Cakes or Molten Chocolate Cake is a combination of a flourless cake and a souffle. The decadent, delicious, oozing liquid chocolate center resembles lava in nature, hence the chocolate lava cake name. These chocolate lava cakes are very easy to make low carb using a very small amount of almond flour, sugar free chocolate and your favorite keto sweetener. This recipe requires just 7 ingredients and is baked for about 10 minutes. Since they make the perfectly portioned size, you and your partner will each have your own mini cake to enjoy!
Tools to Make Chocolate Lava Cakes
Stand Mixer-My stand mixer is used in most of my recipes as the quickest and easiest way to get the job done efficiently!
Glass Bowls-These glass bowls can be used for melting the chocolate and butter over a simmering pot of water on the stove or use to melt in the microwave.
1 Cup Ramekins– These ramekins hold approximately 1 cup and make the perfect sized keto chocolate lava cake! Also use these for any of my other mug cakes, like my 1 Minute Chocolate cake or my Tiramisu Mug Cake, Cannoli Mug Cake or Peanut Butter Mug Cake.
