Tip: Take care not to overcook otherwise you won't get a gooey centre. Follow the timings carefully and remove from the oven whilst still runny in the centre. Leave to stand for 5 minutes and then you should have the perfect gooey centre.
Tip: Use white granulated sweetener that has the same texture and weight as sugar.

When building this on my app it is 240 calories when I include the 60g of biscoff for the mix but calories are higher (330 kcals per lava cake) when I add the additional 4 tsp of biscoff for the centres! Is this correct?

Reply

    HollyWednesday 30th March 2022

    Hey Julie, Thanks for your message. I have just checked the nutritional values for the Biscoff Lava Cakes and the information on the recipe page is correct. We understand that it can be frustrating that apps and websites might not match up on calorie counts. There are a lot of reasons that the calories can differ; calories can be different after an ingredient is cooked in a particular way, or different brands of ingredients can vary the calorie count substantially, for example. Unfortunately the apps available to the general public do not account for this. We have an article HERE that talks through how to work out your own nutritional information which you may find helpful.

Would the same method work using lemon flavouring & lemon curd for the centre to create lemon lava cakes?

    Hey Karen, we haven’t tried this but it should work okay!

What is caramel flavouring?

Reply

    SharonMonday 28th February 2022

    Hi Denise, caramel flavouring is food flavouring that can be found with similar products such as vanilla extract, in the baking aisle of most supermarkets. There are several brands including Dr.Oetker, supermarket own brands and Foodie Flavours which can be found on Amazon. Hope this helps.

Would it be ok to use biscoff crunchy instead of the smooth?

Reply

    SharonMonday 28th February 2022

    Hi Rachel, yes you could use crunchy Biscoff spread if you like, it will just mean you have some crunchy bits in the lava cakes but they will still be delicious!
