This is the best keto dessert that I have made. My batter came out thicker and I cooked a little longer but it was still delicious. It looked like the picture. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

This looks soo delicious! Chocolate Lava cake was one of my favs pre-Keto! Your nutritional info says 5g sugars….where is that coming from? Does it mean sugar alcohols from the erythritol? Thanks!

It’s naturally occurring sugars in cocoa powder, dark chocolate, and heavy cream.
