Chocolate Lava Cake

the ultimate chocolate fix

By: Izy Hossack
Nothing can beat a gooey chocolate lava cake for dessert. We’ve made the classic even better by adding a spoonful of our Hazelnut Protein Cream to the center for an extra chocolate hit. Try serving with a spoonful of yoghurt for a creamy, tangy topping to cut through the sweetness.


  • Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F fan (200C / 400F non-fan).
  • Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring until just melted. Remove the bowl from the pan and set aside to cool until only just warm.
  • Add the protein powder and egg yolk to the melted chocolate and mix until smooth.
  • Whip egg white in a separate, clean bowl until you get stiff peaks then whisk in the coconut sugar.
  • Mix half of the whipped egg whites into the chocolate mixture to loosen. Add this back into the bowl of egg whites and gently fold together to combine.
  • Grease a ramekin or small, heatproof dish with a thin layer of coconut oil and dust with cocoa powder. Set on a baking tray.
  • Pour the batter into the ramekin and dot the spoonful of protein cream into the middle. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are set but the centre is still runny.
  • Allow to cool slightly then tip out onto a plate and serve warm.
  • Enjoy!
