We've created the ultimate dessert recipe and another of Matts favorites with our Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake. Insert the word 'lava' anywhere because this cake will be oozing with peanut butter lava once you dig in! It's a simple cake to make, but we wanted to go ahead and make a recipe video for you anyway. The best part of making recipe videos is that we always make two. One for the video itself and one for photography, which meant I had the chance to indulge in this cake twice already!
1 oz Unsweetened Bakers Chocolate
2-3 tbsp Peanut Butter
2 tbsp Butter
1 tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream
1 large Egg
2 tbsp erythritol
5-7 liquid Liquid Stevia
1 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 tsp Coconut flour
1/4 tsp Baking powder
Optional Make Ahead: In our video we made a frozen peanut butter disc to optimize peanut butter to chocolate ratio and it's also perfectly melty when you cut into the cake. You can also choose to dollop in 2-3 tbsp of peanut butter right into the middle.**To increase sweetness you may want to add 5 drops of stevia to the peanut butter.
Combine bakers chocolate and butter and melt in a microwave safe bowl in bursts of 30 seconds.
Add cream, egg and stevia drops to the chocolate and butter mixture. Set aside.
Combine all dry ingredients: erythritol, coco powder, coconut flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until you get a smooth uniform thick batter.
Pour half the batter into your greased ramekin or springform pan. We use a 4" springform pan for this.
Place the peanut butter right in the center without allowing it to run to the edges.
Pour the second half over the peanut butter.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 13-15 minutes.
You'll know it's done when the edges have firmed and the center is still a little jiggly/not fully cooked seeming.
