Chocolate Friday ~ Lava Cake

Good old Pinterest to the rescue for a much needed chocolate dessert this week.  I needed something lower in calorie but good enough to feed that chocolate craving.

I found this from a blog called Girl Who Bakes.  All the ingredients I had on hand and I had a willing husband who would mix it up for me!  Score.

Now, this is amazing… a little warm chocolate pudding wrapped in a cake like crust.  Every bite just as good as the last.  BUT, if you like raspberry, I would suggested added a dollop of raspberry jam on top of it when it comes out of the oven.  I personally love the raspberry chocolate combo so this really covered that needed I had.


Guilt Free Lava Cake {for one}


2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 heaping tablespoon dutch-processed cocoa
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons skim milk
1 tablespoon non-fat yogurt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.  Mix milk, yogurt, and vanilla in separate bowl.  Pour wet ingredients into bowl of dry ingredients and stir until combined.

Grease a 7 ounce ramekin with cooking spray. Pour batter into ramekin and bake for 12-16 minutes or until edges and top of cake are set. {I cooked it for 15 minutes and it was perfect}

Let cake cool for 1 minute.  If you want to be fancy, you could invert it onto a plate, but I just ate it out of the ramekin!
