What’s A Sugar-Free Chocolate Lava Cake?
Sugar-Free Chocolate Lava Cake is a very popular French recipe. It’s a simple cake in a ramekin cooked to the point where the top is crusty, but the inside is still molten, like lava.
I used a natural sugar sweetener in this recipe. It is a combo of stevia and erythritol that you can measure as sugar, much easier than any other sugar substitute!
There are different brands available on the market. In the US I recommend Swerve or Natvia in New Zealand.
If you are a diabetic, and constantly looking for a simple sugar-free recipe I highly recommend this chocolate lava cake recipe.
How To Make Sugar-Free Chocolate Lava Cake
This recipe is using sugar-free chocolate.
In New Zealand, I use naturally stevia-sweetened chocolate like Healtheries. Alternatively, you can use a strong dark chocolate, nothing less than 85% cocoa bars of course.
This sugar-free chocolate lava cake recipe is a really good surprise. The texture is similar to the sugar-loaded recipe I was eating before.
A molten heart with a strong chocolate-sweet flavor. Honestly, after eating these I sometimes ask myself why I did use so much sugar in baking before!
Baking Gluten-Free Lava Cake
Do not over-bake the cake. For a small ramekin like this 12-15 minutes is enough to have a runny chocolate heart. You can make these chocolate lava cakes ahead.
Store them in the fridge unbaked. Bake them just before serving. It is recommended to take them out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before baking.
Obviously, check the baking process very often during the last minutes of baking. You know it is baked as soon as a crust is forming on the top of the cakes. If you insert a skewer in the center it should come out full of runny chocolate.
