  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tbsp erythritol
  • 2 egg medium
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Preheat your oven 350°F. Combine erythritol and cocoa powder and whisk to remove any clumps.
  • In a different bowl, whisk the eggs. Since this desert doesn't contain any flour, you need the reach that fluffiness.
  • Then add erythritol and cocoa mixture int the bowl with whisked eggs, add heavy cream, vanilla extract, salt and baking powder.
  • Pour the batter in oiled mugs, (we used ceramic) and put it to bake for about 10-15 minutes at 350° F. Do not overcook the cake or it will not flow lava! The top of the cake should be set but also jiggly.
  • You can serve it with various berries, scoop of ice cream, have it directly from a mug, or transfer it upside down on a different plate.
  • Enjoy!



As an alternative, you can also use microwave for about a minute. All microwave ovens are different of course, so check your lava cake after a minute, and if it's still not ready, leave it for 10 more seconds and it should be perfect.
