Looking for a sweet treat to curb your sugar cravings? These low FODMAP lava cakes will have your favourite foodies lining up for seconds!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 6 ramekins with cooking spray and lightly flour the bottom.
Add the butter an dark chocolate and melt in a double boiler (a heatproof bowl sitting on top of steaming water). Whisk until smooth.
Beat the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and salt on high until they're fluffy and light yellow. Quickly fold the melted chocolate into the bowl, followed by the flour. Spoon an equal amount of batter into each ramekin and cook for 10-12 minutes. Your lava cakes are done when the sides are completely set and the center is starting to crust over but isn't firm. Watch these like a hawk! There's about a 30-second difference between a lava cake and a brownie. Ask me how I know.
Once your lava cakes are cooked, carefully pick up a ramekin and place a plate over the top. Flip them both over and gently tap on the bottom of the ramekin with a wooden spoon. Gently lift up the ramekin to reveal your lava cake! Serve with warm berry compote, low FODMAP caramel, or lactose-free ice cream.
I've tried greasing my ramekins with butter, vegetable shortening, and cooking spray. While I've had some success with butter, I get more consistent results with cooking spray.
Make sure to serve your lava cakes immediately. They'll keep cooking in the ramekins. So, if you pull the perfect lava cake out of the oven, it might be a brownie by the time you serve it if you dawdle.
