Keto Chocolate Lava Cake Directions
Get a small bowl
In a small bowl, whisk together almond flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
Add in melted butter, heavy cream, egg and vanilla. Mix until combined.
Pour cake batter into a greased microwave safe round dish (about 4.5 inches in diameter).
Top with broken pieces of chocolate. Drizzle water on top. Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until edges of the cake are set. The center will be tacky and moist to the touch.
Let it cool
Let sit for 4-5 minutes in the microwave before removing and inverting upside down onto a serving plate. Top with whipped cream or ice cream.
Me and my lady recently started keto and we had a hankering for some kind of dessert. This absolutely delicious and is everything that you expect in a lava cake. We will definitely be having this again in the future!
I also want to say that I love your website. I understand that ad revenue allows you fuel your passion of providing recipes and encouraging a different lifestyle; but the fact that it isn’t blatantly loaded with ads is something that I really appreciate. I found you on YouTube a few weeks ago. Keep the fantastic recipes going!
I’m confused. It appears that this is a recipe for 1 serving when being mad but the nutritional facts say 2 servings. Am I missing something?
It’s very caloric dense and rich, so that’s why I decided to make it two servings. You can eat the entire thing if you want.
Anne, I love your recipes and I follow you on YouTube. Keep up the good work ?
This is so delicious!!! Loved every bite! Just a quick question. Are the macros above calculated per serving or for the entire thing?
Macros are for two servings. So if you ate it all, then you would double the macros. I split it into two because I felt like it was caloric dense for those watching calories.
Delish!!!! Ok so I have been on keto for a cool minute; but, this cake is great!! It’s easy to make but for the topping I made a whipped cheesecake topping (I couldn’t help myself). I also sub substituted half of the sweetener in the cake for half of sugar-free vanilla syrup used in coffee‘s. I feel like I am sinning… but I am not!
I just tried this. It’s insanely delicious. I sure I’ll be making this weekly. I miss chocolate donuts and this will solve that craving. Didn’t have to alter the recipe at all. Thanks!
Would like your 20 minute ice cream maker name and your ice cream recipe. I don’t have social media, but have seen your channel on UTube.
here’s my ice cream recipe: https://www.ketofocus.com/recipes/keto-vanilla-ice-cream/
Instead of the monk fruit blend, can you substitute swerve for it in all of your dessert recipes?
Yes, you can!
This literally is my favorite quick dessert to make. So delicious and easy to make!
I have not found a good small dessert that had the right texture until this – so rich!!! I only ate 1/4 and put it away as a treat to savor over several servings – especially with the homemade whipped cream. I used allulose and it was wonderful – thank you!!!!! Love your channel. Your recipes appeal to non-ketoers too!
Holy Moly, this is so amazingly good! You just made my life so much sweeter, thank you for your awesome recipes!
