Paleo Molten Lava Chocolate Cake with Summer Berry Compote

Since my last recipe was a sensible salad I decided to post a decadent dessert. This cake and compote is served warm, right out of the oven or you can serve it at room temperature. Of course the lava doesn't run out as easily once it has cooled off.
However you serve it, it is moist and chocolaty and every bite is satisfying and filling.
I found the recipe for the cake here. I altered it slightly and it turned out fabulous first time I made it. I also added the easy summer berry compote to the finished product.
This is an incredibly easy dessert that only takes about 30 minutes to make from start to finish.

  3. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Mix until batter is smooth.
  4. Fill each ramekin 3/4 full.
