Lava treat

Another rainy week in Berlin. Visitors are finally gone and after that, I most definitely needed another dessert recipe. You can never go wrong with fruits, so this one should be interesting enough. The plating was just a spur of the moment thing, you can decorate it as easy or complex as you feel like. Also, it is good to point out that this, is a portion for 6!

In it:

Fruit syrup

  • 1/3 cup of raspberries
  • 1/3 cup of strawberries
  • 1/3 cup of blueberries
  • 1 cup of fat-free yoghourt

Lava cake

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt, optional
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Splash vanilla extract, optional
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips

How to:

Fruit Syrup

  • Cut the fruits as small as possible (if you have a food processor or blender, even better)
  • Once you make a “juice” out of it, use a colander to pour the mix into a bowl.
  • Take half of the content from the bowl and mix it with the yoghourt.
  • Now you have 2 different sweeteners.
  • Serve or plate as preferred.

Lava cake

  • Put the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt if using in a 12-ounce microwave-safe ceramic mug.
  • Blend thoroughly with a fork.
  • Add the milk, vegetable oil and vanilla if using and blend until smooth.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Microwave on high for 90 seconds. Do not overcook or the cake will be dry. Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes before eating.
  • Serve as preferred. You can invert the mug to take the content out, use shots or just serve with the mug 🙂
  • You can decorate it with milk chocolate powder and/or powdered sugar.
