Gluten-Free Molten Chocolate Lava Cake is all you'll ever need for a cozy night in & perfect for any Valentine's or Galentine's Day celebrations!
I set out to create a delicious gluten-free molten chocolate lava cake, that would wow guests and be sinfully delicious, for a special occasion. Most recipes are quite similar, but I made a few changes to the classic that I think worked really nicely.
Coffee is used in many chocolate cake and honey cake recipes, but I haven't seen it in the majority of chocolate lava cake recipes. So, I figured I'd give it a try & it worked great! Now, to be honest, I'm not 1000% sure it lends tons of flavor, but I think it works well in this recipe & enhances the chocolate flavor a bit. If you have instant coffee on hand, definitely use it, but feel free to omit if you don't have the ingredient on hand.
70% Bittersweet Chocolate
I tested this recipe with Scharfeen Berger 70% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate, and I think it's fabulous! I've always been a semi-sweet chocolate kind of person, but this chocolate really exceeded my expectations. Feel free to use whichever bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate you have on hand.
Try to find yourself a good quality chocolate bar, rather than chocolate chips, because chocolate chips have stabilizers and can effect the texture of the final cake.
Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour
Bob's Red Mill saves the day again with their Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour! This post happens to be sponsored by Bob's Red Mill, because I can't get enough of their products and had to partner with them this year.
I've been on a gluten-free diet, for health reasons, for about 6 years now, and this Gluten-Free flour blend has been my go-to favorite all these years! It's no-fail, already includes xanthan gum for structure, and yields soft moist baked goods every time.
Sometimes people tell me that their gluten free baked goods come out dry, every time I tell them all about the Bob's Red Mill flour blend because it truly is a life saver.
