Chocolate fondant recipe

chocolate fondant

A step-by-step recipe on how to make chocolate fondant in just 20 minutes.

Chocolate fondant, chocolate volcano, lava cake, or even “melting chocolate” – this is what this dessert is called in different countries. But whatever you name it, it drives you crazy for one reason: the game of textures that smoothly change from warm viscous chocolate inside to a dense crust on the outside. And the magic is that every time it turns out differently.

We suggest adding to the fondant a note of hazelnut to soften the bitterness of the chocolate. In the recipe, you can use a mixture of hazelnut butter and cocoa, or homemade keto-nutella.

Cuisine: American, Ketogenic
Keyword: lava cake, no dairy, no sugar, лава-кейк
Servings: 6 serving

  • 2 egg (large)
  • 6 tbsp hazelnut butter (or paste)
  • 60 gr erythritol (or 40 grams of allulose)
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder (sugar-free)
  • pinch salt
  • butter (to grease the mold)


  • Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F). Grease 6 cupcake paper cups with a large amount of soft butter.
  • Beat eggs in a bowl, then add nut butter, sweetener, almond slime, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix well with a whisk or mixer. The dough should be liquid.
  • Pour the dough into the cups. Put the fondants in the oven at a medium level and bake for exactly 8 minutes without convection. Do not open the oven during the process!
  • Take the molds out – you may find that the top of the cakes is still a bit liquid. Let them cool for 5-7 minutes. They will tighten after this time. Carefully remove the fondants from the forms, and everything is ready!


If you decide to use a ready-made chocolate-nut paste, you will need to slightly change the proportions: take 8 tablespoons of paste and 2 tablespoons of cocoa.
If the cupcakes are completely baked within the specified time, your oven is more powerful than ours, so next time you need to lower the temperature.
