The original flourless chocolate cake! Experience for yourself a volcanic eruption of chocolate!
  • 8 oz GF semi-sweet chocolate
  • ½ cup butter or margarine (+ extra for greasing ramekins)
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ⅛ tsp (pinch) salt
  1. Melt the chocolate and butter together, stirring until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Prepare 5 ramekin dishes (5oz) by brushing the insides with melted butter, then sprinkle in some white sugar, coating the entire buttered surface. Shake out any excess, then set dishes on a baking sheet.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl, whisk until smooth. Then add in the chocolate mixture, whisking until it is thick and smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into each cup up to ¾ full, and bake at 400°F for about 10-15 minutes (the centers should be soft). Check them after 10 minutes - you don't want to over bake them or their won't be any 'lava' inside!
  5. To serve, gently invert the ramekin onto a plate, dust with icing sugar, and a scoop of GF vanilla ice cream if you like.
Because this dessert should only be served straight from the oven, If you want to make this ahead of time refrigerate the batter in the cups until just before you need them (bake chilled batter 15-20 minutes).
