Chocolate Lava CakePerfectly firm and slightly crisp and chewy on the outside, yet still pouring from the center, this gluten free cake is best served lukewarm with cold whipped cream. Palm sugar showed to work particularly well for this cake, but if unavailable, it can be replaced with honey, raw sugar or other sweetener of choice.
