Decadent Chocolate Lava Cake #glutenfree #nutfree

Calm down, take a deep breath, count to 10… and you’re ready to be amazed. 🙂 Yes, this gluten free lava cake is amazing!

OK, now imagine a delicious chocolate lava cake, with that gooey centre, straight from the oven. However, you think this is too simple, you want more! Then you pour a smooth chocolate ganache on it. Next, add some fresh strawberries. To finish, you decide to dip a delicious banana popsicle in its centre.

Yes, my dear, this video is explicitly enticing; don’t tell me I haven’t warned you. 😛

  • Lava Cake
    • 150g of dark chocolate (90%)
    • 1 tablespoon of butter
    • 1 tablespoon of honey (optional, or any other sweetener you like)
    • 2 eggs
  • Ganache
  • Ice cream
    • 100g of raw frozen bananas
    • 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt
  1. Lava cake (previous video recipe here)
    1. Preheat oven to 150C (302F).
    2. In a bowl put together the chocolate, butter and honey. Melt them in a double boiler or using a microwave (be careful to not burn the chocolate).
    3. After melting and mixing everything together, bring it out from the double boiler and add the eggs.
    4. Mix until everything is well combined.
    5. Grease two small ramekins with butter and add some cocoa powder to it.
    6. Place the batter into the ramekins and bake it for 6 min (approximately).
    7. Each cake must be firm on the outside but still have that delicious and gooey centre. Maybe you will need to do some testing to find the right time of your oven.
  2. Ganache
    1. Pour the pure cream in a saucepan and bring it to boil.
    2. Turn off the fire and then add the chocolate.
    3. Mix everything together until the chocolate melts and the ganache gets a shine and smooth look.
  3. Ice cream (video recipe here)
    1. Mix all together (fruit you chose + yogurt) using a food processor.
    2. Add the mixture to a popsicle mold and freeze it for about 3 hours.
    3. Unmold them when completely set.
  4. Assembling
    1. Get the lava cake straight from the oven.
    2. Pour some ganache on it.
    3. Next place the popsicle and some strawberries.
    4. Done! Time to dive into it! Enjoy as a special treat. 🙂
