Do not over-bake the cake. For a small ramekin like this 12-15 minutes is enough to have a liquid chocolate heart.You can prepare them in advance. Store in the fridge and bake them just before serving. In this case it will require few more minutes of baking because the batter will be cold after coming out of the fridge..

      Hi Carin, Yes I meant egg yolk ! I am French and I am doing my best to wrote in English but apologize if sometimes things are unclear. Someday language are just mixing up in my head :) I updated the recipe for you !

      Bonjour Daiana, Vous pouvez remplacer effectivement remplacer le melange de farine par de la farine blanche mais la recette ne sera plus sans gluten ni aussi nutritive. Le but de melanger des farines riches en fibres et proteines est de rendre le gateau plus sains et equilibres et moins riches en glucides – moins d’impact sur la glycemie et plus adapte au regime diabetique. J’espere avoir repondu a votre question. A bientot sur le blog. Carine. :)

    Would this still taste good if I made it non dairy? Like instead of butter I’ll use oil or margarine and instead of dairy milk I’ll use almond milk?

    • Carine says

      Hi Liat. I would recommend margarine instead of butter, I am pretty sure it will work. I will not use oil as it could change the consistency too much or maybe coconut oil could be ok. Any milk will be ok but I love coconut milk instead of cow milk. I hope it is helpful :) Let me know how it goes ! Carine. xx.

  2. Katie says

    I was looking at this recipe to make for a friend of mine, but she is also allergic to corn. Could I replace the corn flour with something else? I don’t know anything about baking gluten free/corn free. Thank you!

    • Carine says

      Hi Katie, Sure ! you can use arrowroot powder instead, same quantity and it will work well :) Enjoy ! Carine.

    • Carine says

      Hi Christina, I never tried the recipe using almond flour and I am not sure that the center will be as ‘runny’ as with buckwheat flour but it should work anyway. Let me know how it goes if you try this option. Enjoy! Carine

      Hi Anne, I just updated the recipe with the nutrition panel. Those chocolate lava cakes are not ‘light’ in calories – very similar to a regular chocolate lava cake. However, if you watch your sugar intake those contains only 2.5 g of sugar per servings and 13 g of net carbs which means lots of fulfilling fiber too! I created this recipe 3 years ago when I learnt I had prediabetes. It was a great treat with not much sugar. I hope you will give it a try! It worth it. xoxoCarine.
