RECIPE - MAKES 3
- 140g white chocolate
- 75g butter
- 75g (3 heaped tbsp) plain flour
- 1 tbsp matcha powder
- 70g coconut sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
TO FILL/ TOP:
- 1 handful raspberries
- Matcha Powder
- Ice cream to serve
- Crushed pistachios to serve
- Melt your white chocolate and butter together, mixing well and making sure they’re combined fully
- Whilst the white chocolate and butter melt together, whisk your eggs and coconut sugar in a separate bowl with your vanilla, until you end up with a light & fully mixture - this should take around 2-3 minutes.
- Pour your white chocolate into the egg mixture, whisking well until you end up with a silky mixture.
- Sift your flour and matcha into the wet ingredients, along with a pinch of salt.
- Mix with a spatula, making sure the flour is incorporated fully with the wet ingredients.
- Once combined, set the mixture aside and preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Add your raspberries and icing sugar to a blender, blending until completely smooth - this will go in the centre.
- Grease your moulds with butter, then dust with flour, making sure the entire thing is coated - if not, your cake will stick and you won’t end up with the lava effect.
- Pour your batter into the lava cake tins until 2/3 full, then spoon 1 tbsp of your raspberry coulis into the centre.
- Cover the raspberry mix up with the matcha cake batter around the edges, then bake for 13-15 minutes.
- Remove the cakes from the oven and set aside to rest for a couple of minutes, then flip over onto a plate, carefully removing the cake tins.
- Top with 1 tsp of your raspberry coulis, some chopped roasted pistachios, ice cream, yoghurt or cream of choice, and a sprinkle of matcha.
