Gluten Free Molten Chocolate Cake

Gluten Free Molten Chocolate Cake

This is an absolutely scrumptious gluten free molten chocolate cake recipe, I make it often because it only takes 15 minutes to prepare plus the baking time. I have other recipes but this one is my favourite because it doesn’t call for any additional sugar. It’s quite easy and quick to make this heavenly molten chocolate cake if suddenly after dinner you feel like having dessert. Plus if also you are a fan of hot and cold desserts serve this gluten free molten chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream. This recipe is from the academy where I got my certification as a chef (Chef academy in Italy) and had a serving suggestion of a frozen white ganache and red currants. Most of the times I serve it with vanilla Ice cream or just some icing sugar and fresh berries and it’s just perfect.

Once you bake the cakes serve immediately, the middle is meant to be molten, leaving them aside while hot will continue the cooking process and they might solidify. However, if you want to use this recipe as a make ahead dessert, fill up the moulds with the cake batter and place in the fridge until you need to bake them. Be aware that the cooking times depend on many factors like the size of the moulds, oven temperature etc. If you want to make sure to get the perfect texture the first time you make this recipe, you can bake initially just one and work any changes.
