PREP TIME: 15 minutes

COOK TIME: 10 minutes





  1. Pre-heat oven to 175°C. Grease 2 ramekins with coconut oil.
  2. Stir the chocolate and oil together in a bowl. Stir in the eggs, coconut and sweetener – it will be a dough-like consistency that is pourable.
  3. Pour into 2 greased ramekins. Bake for 9 minutes, until the top is set but still wobbly. Do NOT over-bake!
  4. Turn out onto plates and serve with berries and a dusting of powdered xylitol


  • If you want to turn your cakes out, grease your ramekins REALLY WELL! If you are only after the taste, then just serve in the ramekins.
  • Do NOT over-bake! The top needs to be set, but jiggly. Don’t deprive yourself of that gooey centre.
  • Best eaten straight out of the oven! If you leave them in the ramekins for long, they will continue to cook and set more than you might like.
