Chocolate Molten Cake 

Chocolate Molten Cake 

This recipe is from the talented Hemsley & Hemsley girls. I was given their book for my birthday and this is the first recipe to be cooked. Very quick and easy, perfect for a dinner party or just because!

Equipment required 

5 small ramekins or 3 lrg
1 baking tray
1 sml saucepan
1 mixing bowl

Shopping list makes 5 small or 3 large

75g coconut oil
4 tbsp of coca powder
3.5 tbsp of maple syrup
1/4 tsp of bicarb soda
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
Pinch sea salt
3 eggs

Method to the madness 

Pre heat the oven to 180C

Whisk the eggs together in the mixing bowl

In a small saucepan melt the coconut oil over a low heat, once melted remove from the heat

Add the remaining ingredients, except the egg, mix well and taste for sweetness, add some more maple if desired

Now mix the eggs through until fully combined, it will start to thicken

Place the ramekins on the baking tray and fill with the mixture, leave at least 5mm from the top to accommodate the rise

Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, until you see the dome rise, but it’s still wobbly, I recommend 8 minutes

Serve immediately, as it will keep cooking in the ramekin

I served mine with clotted cream, however you could use Coyo or an dairy alternative ice cream to keep it paleo

    1. I am so sorry it’s taken me so long to reply! I actually forgot to look at my comments! Each ramekin has about 12g of carbs, if you are using the small ones. You could reduce this by using less maple syrup. I hope you have tried them and loved them!
