In addition to my chocolate and coconut obsession, I also have an obsession with raspberry chocolate. It all started with Dove’s Irresistibly Raspberry ice cream, a mouthful of heaven comprised of vanilla ice cream swirled with raspberry sorbet and Dove dark chocolate. Undoubtedly the best thing I’ve ever eaten. Sadly, it was discontinued a few years ago (which is probably a good thing since it wasn’t the least bit healthy), so I’ve been trying to create a yummy raspberry chocolate combo ever since.

These measurements are only for a single serving, so feel free to make as many as you’d like! (Trust me, you’ll want more than one!)

raspberry chocolate lava cake recipe

Raspberry Chocolate Lava Cake
Print
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 ½ tbsp liquid sweetener of choice
  • 2 ½ tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 ½ tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp milk of choice
  • 6 raspberries
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • Dash of sea salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Blend all ingredients except raspberries in a blender until smooth.
  2. Place ⅓ of cake mix in a ramekin or small baking cup (I use a teacup to get the circle shape shown in this photo.)
  3. Microwave for about 30 seconds to firm.
  4. Muddle raspberries with a spoon or fork, then place on top of firmed cake mix.
  5. Pour ⅓ of cake mix on top of the mushed raspberries and microwave for another 30 seconds to firm, then pour the remaining cake mix on top and microwave on high for about 2 minutes (After 1 minute, the mixture may start to bubble and overflow, so you’ll want to pause the microwave every 10-20 seconds, then resume until cake is cooked all the way through. It’s okay if the middle has a bit of a gooey texture to it.)
  6. When the cake is finished, turn the cup over onto a plate.
  7. If you’d like to top cake with homemade chocolate sauce, stir 1 tsp cocoa powder, 1 tsp melted coconut oil and 1 tsp liquid sweetener together, then pour on top of cake.
