Rich Gluten-Free Molten Chocolate Cake 


  • ¼ c. plus 2 Tbsp. sorghum flour
  • 1 Tbsp. tapioca flour
  • 1 Tbsp. potato starch
  • ¼ tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1 ½ c. powdered sugar
  • 8 Tbsp. butter or Smart Balance
  • 8 oz. 64 percent dark chocolate
  • 1 banana
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. Grand Marnier

HEAT the oven to 425°F. Spray 10 four-ounce ramekins with nonstick baking spray.

IN a medium bowl, whisk together the sorghum flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, xanthan gum, and powdered sugar. Set aside. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a microwave or in a double boiler.

IN a separate bowl, mash the banana until almost smooth. Add the eggs, egg yolks, vanilla, and Grand Marnier and incorporate into the chocolate-butter mixture. Add the flour mixture and whisk until smooth. Divide the batter between the prepared ramekins and bake for about 15 minutes, until the sides of the cake are set and the center is slightly jiggly. Run a knife around the edge of the ramekins and invert onto serving plates. Serve hot with fresh berries.
