Ever tried a keto cake that has almost no carbs? It’s amazing!
Sweets and snacks are notorious for their carb-packed goodness, and I understand why so many of us refuse to indulge in our cravings. We simply don’t want all of that fat-burning effort we put in the gym and our daily routines to be for nothing.
Well, I’ve got something special for you today.
Low carb desserts like this one are perfect for those of you who are not consuming carbs and want to stay lean or lose weight while satisfying their sweet tooth at the same time.
When should you eat it?
The beauty of eating on a ketogenic diet menu is that there are no restrictions as to when can or cannot indulge, as long as you keep track of your daily macronutrient intake.
Being on a keto diet can be taxing on the mind and while it can prove somewhat difficult to stay carb-free day in and day out, we all have to eat something in between meals.
And what better than to eat a tasty, sweet snack!
How to make the Delicious Keto Lava Cake
To make these delicious, healthy keto recipes you will need 20 minutes of your time and the following:
- 2 tbps cocoa powder
- 1-2 tbsp erythritol
- 1 medium egg
- 1 tbsp heavy cream
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
Keto Lava Cake Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and start prepping the ingredients by mixing the erythritol and cocoa powder in a bowl. Whisk to remove clumps and make a smooth consistency.
You will need to beat the egg in a different bowl until it becomes full and fluffy and since your lava cake doesn’t have flour, you need the aeration of the beaten egg to help coax the cake to rise.
You can now add your egg, heavy cream and vanilla extract to the sugar and cocoa mixture, along with salt and baking powder. Now mix.
Spray or spread a little cooking oil into a mug or ramekin and then pour your batter in and let it bake for about 10-15 minutes at 350°F. Be cautious not to overcook the cake or it will not flow like lava! The top of the cake should be soft but it shouldn’t flow.
You can also microwave your mug cake for about a minute. Not all microwaves were created equal, so make sure to check up on your cake once the minute is up and if it’s still not soft and set, put it back in for 10 second intervals until done.
Congratulations, you got yourself a healthy, delicious snack!
There is no more need to perceive ketogenic diet recipes as constraining, you have all the freedom to be healthy and eat tasty foods simultaneously.

Keto Lava Cake Serving Options
Along with eating it plainly from the mug, you can choose to top it off with some whipped cream, ice cream or even fresh fruit.
The Molten Lava:
While the cake is still in the mug, place some ice cream of your choosing on top of the cake and wedge around the edges with a knife to make it easier for the cake to fall out of the mug.
Put a plate on top of the mug and flip it upside down letting the cake fall out and over the ice cream.
Leave the lava cake on the plate for a few minutes and let it melt the ice cream just a little.
Dig into the cake and let the cold ice cream mix with the hot cake and enjoy!
With Whipped Cream:
You can put some whipped cream on top of the cake and dig in, simple as that!
With Fresh Fruit:
Some of the best keto deserts come with fruit! Chop your favorite fruit into tiny pieces and sprinkle them on top of the cake. Dig into the snack and let the fruit fall into the cake.
