Author's Notes

Perfecting the bake on the lava cake can take some time. Don’t forget to grease the ramekins and keep an eye on them! Only remove it from the oven when the edge has set and visibly begins to peel away from the wall, and the middle has a cooked-through shell but still jiggles.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Step 2
In a medium saucepan simmer 2-inches of water.
Step 3
In a heatproof bowl melt Butter (3 Tbsp) and Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate (4 Tbsp) by stirring until smooth.
Step 4
Once melted, mix in Salt (to taste) and Strong Coffee (1 Tbsp) . Remove from heat.
Step 5
Sift in Powdered Confectioners Sugar (3/4 cup) until combined, then let cool.
Step 6
Once cool to the touch, add in Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp) , Apple Cider Vinegar (1/2 tsp) , and 1 whole egg plus the yolk of a second egg Eggs (2) .
Step 7
Slowly mix in the Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour (3 Tbsp) and Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (1 Tbsp) until combined. The batter should be fairly runny so if it feels too thick add more coffee tsp by tsp to loosen it up.
Step 8
Add in Red Food Coloring (1/2 Tbsp) until Valentine’s red is achieved.
Step 9
Grease two ramekins with butter. Evenly distribute the mixture throughout.
Step 10
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges have set and the center has baked enough to form a shell but still jiggles.
Step 11
Allow them to cool for 5 minutes before unmolding. Serve warm with a dusting of powdered sugar and garnish with Fresh Strawberries (to taste) .
