Chocolate Lava Cupcakes recipe made from scratch! They look professional, they taste phenomenal, and the best thing is that they are gluten-free and dairy-free! (Easily made Vegan)
You’ve asked for it. Prepare to begin making these cupcakes by the end of this post. // I’m being serious.
If you haven’t made our super easy gluten-free chocolate cake yet, now is the time.
I’ll be sharing my birthday cake with you soon! // And yes, it involves chocolate cake, too.
It’s VB’s chocolate cake though–nothing from a box. All the ingredients are simple, natural, and easy to mix together.
That is how we roll.
While we roll, let’s dive into the best part of these Chocolate Lava Cupcakes.
That ooey, gooey chocolate center. // Come to momma.
You have a couple options with this center. You can create an easy dairy-free chocolate ganache, similar to what is on our flourless chocolate cake.
OR take an extra step and make a Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding.
Both create a gooey center. I prefer the ganache as it mimics those Chocolate Lava Cakes when warm. Take a bite into the cupcake and be prepared for chocolate oozing down your fingers.
TIP: To easily create the lava center, I recommend a filling piping tool. Fill your piping bag with ganache, stick the piping tip into the center of a cupcake, and slowly squeeze. (If you squeeze too quickly, the ganache will quickly spill out of your cupcake. Don’t do that.)
