Molten Lava Cakes


  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup Sucanat
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup white wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Orange or pear slices, for garnish (optional)


    1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly spray 4 small ramekins with cooking spray.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine cocoa powder and Sucanat; whisk in applesauce and oil.
    3. In a small bowl, lightly whisk egg and egg white and add to cocoa mixture, whisking until smooth.
    4. Stir in flour and vanilla until flour is combined completely; do not over mix. Divide mixture evenly among prepared ramekins, place on a baking sheet and bake for 9 minutes. Centres should be soft but sides firm. Invert ramekins onto serving plates; let stand a few minutes before removing cups. Garnish each cake with fruit slices, if desired, and serve warm.
