HOW TO MAKE VEGAN BISCOFF CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE

You will find the instructions and ingredients list in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

1. Step: Preheat the oven and prepare the ramekins

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease three 6oz ramekins (170ml/8,5cm) with vegan butter or coconut oil and dust it with cocoa powder. It ensures the cakes will seamlessly come out of the ramekins onto a plate.

3. Step: Make the chocolate ganache

Place finely chopped dark chocolate bar in a glass bowl, and put it over a small pot with just-boiled water. Let the chocolate slowly heat up and melt. Mix it through a few times. Once the chocolate is melted, slowly and gradually, while stirring, add unsweetened almond milk. Stir with a spatula until combined into a smooth ganache.

To the dry ingredients, add applesauce and chocolate ganache. Mix with a spatula until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter (or the cakes will get too dense).
