My favorite recipe from this eCookbook is featured below and I can’t wait to serve it this Christmas Eve! It’s rich and super-chocolatey, but with half the guilt!
Flourless Chocolate Sunken Lava Cake with Raspberries
- 6 oz chopped semi-sweet chocolate, 60 to 62% cacao
- 1⁄2 c canola oil
- 1⁄4 tsp Kosher salt
- 6 tbsp Stevia In The Raw Bakers Bag
- 6 tbsp Sugar In The Raw Organic White
- 4 lg eggs, separated
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting on top
- 1 c fresh raspberries
Preheat the oven to 335° F. Grease an 8” spring form pan or cake pan and line with parchment paper. In a heat proof bowl, or double boiler over simmering water, melt the chocolate, oil, and salt, stirring occasionally. Remove from the stove and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the sugars and mix until evenly distributed. Set aside. Using a stand mixer or hand held mixer, whisk the egg yolks with half of the mixed sugars until the yolks are pale and creamy and have doubled in size, about 3 minutes. Fold the whisked yolks into the melted chocolate with a spatula, just partially incorporating them.
Using a clean mixer, whisk the egg whites with remaining sugars until just foamy, about 2 minutes. Fold the whisked whites into the chocolate mixture until evenly combined. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.
Bake 16-20 minutes, until the sides are firm and the center is soft. Allow to cool on a wire rack for about 15 minutes. Carefully remove the cake from the pan and place on a serving plate. Dust with cocoa powder and top with fresh raspberries before serving.
