Sinless Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes


Sinless Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes

Yield: 2 cakes

  • 2 Tablespoons (28 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 teaspoons Stevia (or sugar)
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Confectioner’s sugar for dusting (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Generously coat two 6-ounce ramekins with cooking spray or butter.
  2. Place chocolate chips in a small microwaveable bowl.  Microwave at 70% power for 1 minute and stir.  Microwave at 70% power for 20 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is entirely melted.
  3. Add applesauce to melted chocolate and stir.
  4. With an electric mixer, beat together the egg, sugar, and vanilla on medium speed until well-blended.  Add flour and chocolate mixture, mixing just until incorporated.
  5. Divide batter between ramekins.
  6. Bake for 11-12 minutes, or until the outer edges of each cake is set.  The center should tremble slightly when the ramekin is moved.  Watch them carefully while baking!
  7. Remove from oven.  Run a knife around the edges of each cake, place a plate upside down on each ramekin, and flip.  Tap the bottom of the ramekin.
  8. Dust with confectioner’s sugar and/or garnish with small scoops of ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.  Serve immediately.

Note: Even their title screams ”healthified.”  If looking for a richer flavor, replace the applesauce with an equal amount of butter and/or add up to twice as much chocolate to taste.
