chocolate molten lava cake

This is another cake recipe I found at  This time I was looking for a treat to serve to choir after choir practice. I headed to everydayfoodstorage because I knew she was doing a cake month and found this.  I was a bit skeptical to try this, plus I wanted to replace the bean puree with bean flour and I didn't want it to go wrong and be inedible.  So rather than not experiment, I had my son make some chocolate chip cookies as backup.  The cookies weren't needed.  The cake was delicious.  It has a lot of sugar in it which I am actually really trying to reduce right now, but at least it had no oil, and used some wheat flour and bean flour.  It was also super easy to mix together.


  • 1/2 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons cocoa powder, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup +2 Tablespoons milk (I used 1 %)
  • 2 Tablespoons black bean flour (Could use any bean flour)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups hot water
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder, baking powder, bean flour, and salt.  Stir in milk and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Spread in an ungreased 9 X 9 inch baking pan.  In another bowl, combine brown sugar and remaining cocoa.  Sprinkle over batter.  Pour hot water over all of it.  Do not stir.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes.  Serve
