Gluten-free, this is an incredibly decadent dessert pairing chocolate and cherries that will stun family and friends!

Serving Size: 3 individual Lava cakes

½ cup + 2 Tbsp King Arthur Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Mix

½ cup confectioners' sugar

⅛ cup Dutch-process cocoa

¼ tsp espresso powder

3 Tbsp hot water

6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1 large egg

6 bittersweet chocolate disks, optional

Blake Hill’s Naked Chocolate Cherry Jam

Optional: Spice it up by using Raspberry Chipotle Chocolate Jam

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly grease 3 baking cups

2

Whisk the cake mix, confectioner's sugar, cocoa and espresso powder until homogeneous

3

Add water, 1 Tbsp Blake Hill’s Naked Chocolate Cherry Jam and melted butter to the dry mixture, stir gently then stir in the egg until combined (do not over-mix)

4

Divide the batter among the baking cups and place 2 bittersweet chocolate disks (optional) into the center of the batter in each cup. Bake for 15 minutes. A quarter-sized circle in the center of the cakes will appear underdone and jiggly when you pull the cakes from the oven

5

Immediately run a small knife or small offset spatula around the edges of the cakes to loosen them from the sides and allow them to cool for 5 minutes

6

Turn the cakes out onto individual plates, top with another Tbsp Naked Chocolate Cherry Jam and Enjoy!
