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.

One of my tried & true beauty brand’s is First Aid Beauty. I have sensitive skin and suffer from rosacea, but FAB’s skincare products are effective, made with safe, soothing ingredients and my skin has never looked or felt better! So, I was super excited to see that FAB’s 5-in-1 Bouncy Mask was included with this box. After just 10 nourishing minutes in this mask, skin is brighter and firmer!
