Chocolate lava cake!

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Before I start all the credit goes to this awesome blog!

This is my second attempt at the best chocolate pudding's now lava cake!
This is revolutionary and I'm so happy I stumbled across the recipe, thanks to Joanne from Bellatrix Nutrition for sharing it!

It's definitely considered a 'treat indulgence' even though dark chocolate and eggs are super foods I don't recommended having this all the time..have it when you are really feeling like a treat or everyone else is having something non-primal then you could indulge in this.  A very high fat, high calorie treat, maybe half it if you are trying to lose weight!
I'm a real lover of super dark chocolate so if you aren't I suggest going for a 70% cocoa content, this version is very rich!

My little tweaks:

  • 14 pieces of 85% Green and Blacks
  • 2 pieces of 70% Old Gold
  • 1 square of 85% Lindt
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil

Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a mug, microwave on a medium setting for about 2 minutes, the coconut oil will stop the chocolate from burning and makes the pudding taste unreal!

Let the melted chocolate cool enough to add in the egg without it scrambling.  Place the square of lindt in the centre and microwave the whole thing for 60 seconds.  
Tip out on a plate, it doesn't stick at all and then serve with whatever your heart desires.  I love pears with chocolate, it reminds me of an old favourite "Upside down pear pudding".

  1. Thank you so much for the GREAT recipe! Have you tried with coconut flour? Does it make any sense adding coconut flour!?

    1. Your very welcome! No I haven't, I wouldn't think you would want to, it would probably dry it out, you'll be surprised at how amazing this is without any flour :)

  2. Awesome! I can't wait to try this. I have to confess I'll have to find out about Green & Blacks.

    1. It is awesome! Green and Blacks makes a pretty smooth 85% chocolate :)

  3. Wow, I just made that, but with less chocolate (maybe 40g) and it was amazing and intense. I love that you are a Kiwi, it is nice to read a blog with brands that I recognize! Thanks for putting the recipe out there :)
