Peanut Butter Lava Cake

Peanut Butter Lava Cake

Missing some old school restaurant desserts?  Don’t worry we got you.  It’s deceivingly easy to make a Lava Cake at home.  We added our own twist by replacing the lava to peanut butter.

Prep Time:  15 Minutes

Cook Time:  16 Minutes

Serves 4 

Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons Spread The Love® NAKED Organic Peanut Butter

1/4 Cup White Chocolate

6 oz Dark Chocolate Pieces

1/2 Cup Butter or Coconut Oil

3 Room Temperature Eggs

1/2 Cup Super Fine Sugar

Pinch of Salt

1/4 Cup Flour

Butter or Coconut Oil Spray

1 Tablespoon Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

1 Teaspoon Powdered Sugar

Optional Garnishes:

Berries

Whipped Cream 

Equipment:

Stand or Hand Held Mixer

4 Six Ounce Ramekins

Small Sauce Pan

Clean Small Ice Cube Tray

Spatula

Baking Sheet

Instructions:

1. First make the lava filling.  In a small sauce pan combine the peanut butter and white chocolate.  Over super low heat melt the white chocolate until the mixture is nice and smooth. Divide the filling into 4 of the ice cube compartments.  Freeze up to an hour.  You can do this part the night before.

2. Pre-heat the oven to 400F.  Spray the ramekins with butter or coconut oil and then lightly coat with cocoa powder.

3. Next make the chocolate cake batter.  In a small sauce pan place the butter and dark chocolate pieces together and melt until nice and smooth over low heat.  Set aside to cool slightly.

4. In a large bowl combine the eggs and sugar together.  Mix well and using a stand or hand mixer whip for 3 minutes until the eggs are a pale yellow and quadrupled in volume. Pour in cooled chocolate liquid. Then, slowly fold in flour until mixed in completely. 

5. Take the peanut butter filling out of the freezer and pop out of the ice cube tray and place on a plate.

6. Fill each ramekin half way up with chocolate cake batter and lightly place the peanut butter filling in the middle of the cake batter.  Don’t press down.  Cover with more batter.

7. Put the filled ramekins on a baking tray and bake for 16 minutes in the center of the oven.  Take out and leave too cool for 5 minutes.

8. Take a small knife and run it around the sides of the cake.  Place a small plate on top of the cakes and using pot holders turn over and lift the ramekins off the cake.  Lightly dust with powdered sugar and serve with berries and/or whipped cream.
