Molten Chocolate Pudding Loaf {Grain-Free!}

The calm before the storm.

Here in the North East we are awaiting a nasty hurricane. The Frankenstorm is what they’re calling it.

Whenever mother nature is about to wreak havoc there is mass chaos at the grocery stores. People stocking up on food, water, batteries…the essentials. I remember one snow storm where the lines were out the door and wrapped around the block! It was insane! And we ended up only getting a few inches of snow. 75 mile an hour wind freaks me out…especially in an area with tons of trees.

No matter what, it’s best to be safe. I can say that I am 110% wishing that we were getting a snow storm rather than a hurricane. Hurricane’s scare me. Power outages are no fun..especially with a baby at home. Last night we went to the grocery store to get a few things. Mike was all “let’s not shop for the storm, we can go out for that later.” And I was all “Are you insane?” Ella and I got things we needed, and hopefully it’s not as bad as they are saying.

I got a bunch of candles set up. I placed a pack of tea lights in mason jars, because burning candles freak me out. I like all of my candles to be in jars. We have some food, lots of water and a couple small coolers. I just wish we had gotten more ice.


I did what you could call “hurricane baking” today. I used up some ingredients that were getting pretty ripe. I made another batch of Ella’s pumpkin muffins but had about 3 1/2 more bananas to use up.


I was trying to think of something creative.


And boy did I ever.


Inside of this rich chocolaty loaf there’s a little surprise.

Molten lava pudding cake if you will. Grain-free? Why yes, we can do that too!

First you make your pudding in a blender. Then make your cake batter and add a little more than half of the batter to a loaf pan:


Scoop in the pudding in the center of the cake:


Gently add the rest of the cake batter to the top:


Sprinkle some more chocolate chips on there…because you can never get enough of those!


Bake it at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Make sure you let it rest for about 20 minutes before taking it out of the loaf pan. I use two cutting boards to take it out, one for the top, flip it, then another for the bottom when I take the loaf pan off.




Heavenly hurricane cake…MoltenPuddingCakeSlice

That’s all I can really say.

Alternately you could probably make mini lava cakes with ramekins. I’m not sure how many or the time but I would start by baking for 20 minutes then going from there! If you try it please let me know how it came out!


Stay safe everyone!

How do you prep for a hurricane?

Looks delish Laury! I’ve been reading more about this grain-free lifstyle and it’s pretty intriguing! Especially considering how much the govt pushes whole grains! Anyway, stay safe in this storm!

Take care!

Definitely very interesting! I highly recommend reading “Wheat Belly” and subscribing to their FB page and blog. Interesting stuff! I feel a lot better when I stay away from wheat. Of course I’m not perfect and let some pizza or delicious baked bread sneak in every now and then…but 90% of my diet is now wheat free and I love it! Who knew it could be so delicious!? Take care, Erin! Thanks

I hope you are safe after the storm, Melissa! It’s just terrible! I feel awful for everyone affected.

Thinking of your during this storm! I hope your whole family stayed safe! There aren’t any hurricanes where I live, so I don’t even know how I’d have to prepare for one! This looks like an absolutely amazing recipe! I think I need to make this:)

Thanks, Lisa! All is well here. We were lucky. It was pretty scary though I was sure one of my windows were going to break!

Hope you enjoy the cake if you try it!
