So from Chocoholics Anonymous…this weekend I am bringing you Hot Chocolate Lava Cakes …yes, yes we can do a Fast day on Monday…but in the meantime a little VE Bank Holiday weekend indulgence is good for the spirits especially served straight out of the oven…molten on the inside and better still with lashings of Double Cream or Crème Fraiche….






1 Egg

1 ½  Tbsp White Sugar

1 Tbsp Milk (any variety)

1 ½ Tbsp Coconut Oil

2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder 

3 Tbsp Almond Flour (Plain is an alternative)

Splash of Vanilla Essence



Melt Coconut oil and stir in sifted cocoa powder

In a separate bowl beat the egg and sugar until pale and fluffy

Combine the two

Add sifted flour and mix

Pour into buttered ramikins

Bake at 180 for 7-9 minutes (I prefer 7 so gooier on the inside)

Serve immediately
