Thank you for supporting What The Fork Food Blog ♥You guys, I can’t even tell you how many questions I fielded this week on whether or not I had a recipe for Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes. It seems like you’re all gearing up for Valentine’s Day and gluten free molten chocolate lava cakes are your dessert of choice.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have an answer for you as it’s not a recipe that had been in my arsenal until NOW. Since you guys are looking for it, I knew I had to deliver. So I completely rearranged my editorial calendar to make that happen for you.
So here we are, with a gluten free molten chocolate lava cake recipe in hand! We are READY for Valentine’s Day my friends! Or ready for dessert at the very least 😉
One important step here is really greasing and dusting your ramekins really well so your cakes don’t stick. I like to dust my chocolate cake pans with cocoa powder instead of flour. It keeps that chocolate theme going strong and you don’t get bits of white pasty flour stuck to your gorgeously dark chocolate cakes.
You can see how I do it with my Gluten Free Mini Chocolate Layer Cakes too, which are also baked in 4-inch ramekins just like these Gluten Free Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes.
These luscious lava cakes are best served hot with vanilla ice cream or with whipped cream but they’d be equally sensational with some white chocolate ganache whipped cream on top too.
If you want to change up the flavor a bit, serve with some Andes Mint Chip Ice Cream for that chocolate mint combo we all love. You could also serve it with a batch of homemade cherry vanilla ice cream because that chocolate cherry combo is also spectacular. Honestly, you really couldn’t go wrong with anything here because this molten chocolate lava cake recipe are just so good. Enjoy!
