Description

These decadent little red velvet lava cakes are so impressive and easy to make for the holidays! They have a fantastic, molten mascarpone center.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAKES:
  • Coconut Cooking Spray, For The Muffin Tin
  • Granulated Sugar, As Needed For Dusting The Tin
  • 6 ounces, weight Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 6 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • ½ teaspoons Cocoa Powder
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 whole Egg Yolks
  • ⅓ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Red Get Food Coloring
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 3 ounces, weight Mascarpone Cheese, Softened To Room Temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Red Gel Food Coloring
  • Powdered Sugar, As Needed For Dusting On Top.
  • Red Crystallized Sugar, As Needed For Sprinkling On Tops

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425ºF and spray 6 wells of a muffin tin really well with the coconut cooking spray. Then dust the wells with granulated sugar to keep them from sticking. Combine the chocolate chips, coconut oil and cocoa powder in a large, heat proof bowl and set it over a small pot of gently simmering water on the stove. Let it melt together as you stir it until it is smooth and glossy. Take it off of the heat and let it cool for a minute. While it cools, thoroughly beat the eggs and egg yolks together. Then whisk them into the chocolate. Follow that by whisking in the flour, salt and food coloring until it is a smooth batter. Set it aside.

Make the lava center mixture next. Stir the mascarpone, brown sugar, vanilla, and food coloring together until it is smooth. Get out a disposable piping bag and put it in a glass, folding the top over to keep it open. Scoop the lava filling into it to get it ready to pipe. Then take the custardy cake mixture and scoop a 1/4 cup of it into each of the 6 prepared muffin tin wells. Then snip the end of the piping bag and pipe a heaping tablespoon of the filling into the center of the cake mixture in each well. Bake the cakes for about 9 minutes, until the outside is crispy but the centers aren’t set.

Let the cakes cool for 8–10 minutes, allowing them to pull away from the sides of the tins. Then place a small sheet tray over the muffin tin and invert the trays so that the cakes turn out right side up. Sprinkle the tops with lots of powdered sugar and red crystallized sugar. Serve them warm immediately. They can also be made ahead. Store them in the refrigerator until you want to serve them. Then microwave them for about 30 second to a minute on a microwave safe dish until warm. Enjoy!
