Chocolate Lovers This is Your Dream Dessert!

I am a chocolate lover. And who can blame me? Look at this melted, glorious, silky, goodness. When combined with eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, a little pom juice and flour heaven happens…

How We Get the “Lava”

A lot of people think lava cakes are injected with gooey goodness, but actually, these rich dark chocolate cakes are baked until the outer edges and top are cooked and the center is not, so when you cut into them the center flows out like lava. No tricky skills required!

FLOUR OPTIONS:

You can make this cake with any flour you wish. I made this one with Jovial Foods Einkorn Flour. Einkorn is an easily digestible ancient form of wheat that bakes up like a dream. BUT if you live gluten free, take heart, I make this cake for myself using Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour and honestly, it’s amazing. (I buy the six pack to save a little money)

Ramekin Preparation:

Prepare 8 ramekins (6oz ramekins) by lining bottoms with parchment paper and spraying with natural non stick spray. I fold a sheet parchment 3x, then place a ramekin on folded paper tracing the bottom of ramekin with a pencil. Then I cut around the circle I traced and have 8 circles.
