Chocolate “Lava Cake” Crumble?
What on earth is that? Let’s just start by saying I tried to make some gluten-free flourless cake for dessert that turned into a disaster. A disaster that tasted delicious and was fiancé approved. Only it wasn’t a flourless cake.
I wasn’t about to throw out a bunch of chocolate goodness, so I recreated the recipe. It tasted like a lava cake and crumble all in one with a hint of brûlée since the icing kinda hardens.
This recipe is lower in fat and sugar than your typical flourless or chocolate lava cake and as a bonus it has extra protein! Now that we are past that complicated description, let’s get onto the recipe.Chocolate “Lava Cake” Crumble Ingredients (makes two)
- 45-50g of Dark Chocolate
- 2 tsps Light Butter (I used Brummel and Brown)
- 2 tsps Pure Cane Sugar + 1 Packet of Stevia (or use all Stevia, but I have not tried)
- 1 Large Egg White
- 1/4 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- Dash of Salt
- 1 Tbsp Plain Greek Yogurt
- Mix in’s: Dark chocolate chips, almond slivers, walnut pieces, chia seeds, hemp seeds, etc.
- Glaze: 2-3 Tbsps Vanilla protein powder and 1-2 tsps of almond milk
Preheat oven to 325degrees Farenheit.
Take first two ingredients and place in bowl and microwave for about 20-40seconds, melt well then let cool. In another bowl add sugar, egg white, vanilla extract and salt and whisk vigorously (or use an electric beater) to combine. Gently fold in the egg mixture into the melted chocolate until well blended. Take the mixture and pour it into any pan. Doesn’t have to be pretty, we are going to mess it up after ;). Let it cook in the oven for about 10-12 minutes. Once it looks almost like a brownie and has a few crumbs coming out of the center when pierced, remove from the oven and let it cool for 5-10 minutes.Take this cooked “brownie-like” cake and throw it into a bowl with the 1 Tbsp of Greek yogurt. Now’s the time for the mix in’s such as extra chocolate, nuts, seeds, etc. Play with it.
I added almond pieces and 1 tsp of chocolate chips. Place back onto the pan and cook for another 5-8 minutes.I know it looks hideous, but trust me, it will be delicious! Once done cooking, divide mixture between two small ramekins. Now is the time for the glaze. You can do a powdered sugar glaze (just powdered sugar mixed with a splash of vanilla extract and milk) or get extra protein goodness and mix vanilla protein powder with some almond milk (or your choice milk) until it reaches a glaze consistency. Top each ramekin with a little glaze and extra toppings if desired; I added chia seeds.
Place ramekin back into the oven one more time for 8-10 minutes and bring the heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once the glaze begins to bubble, you may remove them from the oven and cool for 10-15minutes.Add extra toppings, like fresh raspberries.Maybe even be naughty and add crushed oreos and a chocolate covered oreo. Mmmm ❤
Happy Valentine’s Day ❤ Go make this for your sweetie for dessert now, I promise they will love it!
