  • 6 ramekins



  • Preheat your oven to 375F.
  • Prepare your ramekins: Grease each ramekin with a little bit of butter and dusting of cocoa powder. This step is absolutely crucial as it helps your lava cake easily release from the ramekin.
  • To make the batter, microwave your butter & chocolate on high heat for about 2 minutes. While your chocolate is melting, beat your eggs, sweetener, vanilla extract and salt. Whisk your melted chocolate mixture until it become homogeneous and slowly pour it over your egg mixture while continuously whisking. You will notice that your batter has gotten thicker.
  • Bake your lava cakes for 12-13 minutes. The outside of the lava cakes will look cooked but the center should look slightly gooey.
  • Let your lava cakes rest for 5-10 minutes. Carefully flip your freshly baked lava cakes upside down onto serving plates. Serve with some keto ice cream and dig in while it’s warm.
