A deliciously rich low carb chocolate lava cake with a gooey molten centre. Only 5 ingredients and sugar free! Keto and diabetic-friendly.
Chocolate: Use the best quality you can get hold of, with a cocoa solids amount of at least 85%. I used 100% unsweetened chocolate, so added 3 1/2 tbsp sweetener.
If you use 90% chocolate, 2 tbsp sweetener works well. If your chocolate already contains sweetener, adjust accordingly. If you're in the US, Lily's is always a good option.
The nutrition info is calculated using unsweetened chocolate. If you used 90% chocolate, the amount of net carbs increases to 4.7 per portion
If you want to turn your cakes out, grease your ramekins REALLY WELL! If you are only after the taste, there's no stress - just serve in the ramekins.
My ramekins measured 2 inch at the bottom and 3 at the top. If you want to make 1 larger portion, you might need to increase the time in the oven by 2-3 minutes.
Do not over-bake! The top needs to be set, but jiggly. My first round of cakes baked for 12 minutes and they were firm in the middle. Don't deprive yourself of that gooey centre :)
These cakes are best eaten straight out of the oven! If you leave them in the ramekins for long, they will continue to cook and set more than you might like.
