Looking to make your loved one feel a little extra special this Valentine’s Day without breaking out of ketosis? These Sugar-free Lava Cakes “For Two” is the way to go! Trust me on this one guys. Lava cakes seem to be a complicated dessert but they are so easy to make.
I start with preheating the oven to 400°F. This is important. So you put the cakes in a hot oven and then lower temperature to 350°F. Trust me it just works! Then I move on to melting the chocolate chips (Lilly’s dark baking chips are my favorite) and butter together in the microwave. You want to keep a close eye on this as chocolate can burn in seconds. It should take about a minute for the chocolate chips to be warm enough to smoothly melt when mixed. Do this in 30 second increments. Stir using a silicone spatula until its smooth, add vanilla and set aside.
Next whisk the egg using an electric mixer until it turns pale and fluffy. I use a small amount of oat fiber, it really helps to stabilize the cake. You can skip it if you don’t have any. Make sure to SIFT the oat fiber on to of the whisked egg. Then add the chocolate batter and GENTLY fold everything together.
Spray two ramekins with olive oil spray or grease them with softened butter. Add the batter and smooth the tops. I turn the oven temperature down to 350° F as soon as I put the cakes for baking. Hot temperature create t a crust while the cakes quickly bake while the temperature is lowering. This just works. So go on and make this delicious dessert for you and your sweetheart. And enjoy a guilt-free Valentine’s Day dessert.
