Instant Pot Chocolate Lava Cake
Impress your guests with this Luxurious Showstopping Instant Pot Lava Cake! Each exciting bite oozing with unbelievably silky rich molten chocolate. This melt-in-your-mouth indulging satisfaction is the ultimate dinner party dessert that's surprisingly easy to make!
Melt Chocolate & Unsalted Butter: Melt 3.5oz - 4oz (100g - 113g) 70% cacao dark chocolate with ½ cup (125g) unsalted butter.*Pro Tip: use the double boiler method or the microwave (30-secs interval & mix).
Make Egg Mixture: In a large mixing bowl, add 2 large eggs, 2 large egg yolks, ¼ cup (52g) granulated sugar, and a pinch of salt. Mix ingredients for 1 minute with a hand mixer using medium speed.
Make Chocolate Lava Cake Mixture: Slowly pour in and mix the chocolate-butter mixture with the egg mixture (*Pro Tip: the chocolate-butter mixture can be hot, so you don't want to pour them all in at once). Add ½ tsp (2.5ml) vanilla extract. Then sift in 1 tbsp (9g) all-purpose flour. Mix everything together with a spatula until everything is well mixed.
Pressure Cook Lava Cake: If you are planning to remove the lava cakes from the ramekins to serve, spray the ramekins with cooking spray. Carefully pour the lava cake mixture into 4 x 6oz-ramekins. Then tap the ramekins against the counter a few times to remove air bubbles. Add 1 cup (250ml) cold water in Instant Pot. Place trivet in Instant Pot, then stack the ramekins on top. Pressure cook at High Pressure for 7 - 9 minutes + Quick Release. *Pressure Cooking Times:-Thicker Pyrex Glass Ramekins: High Pressure 8 - 9 minutes + Quick Release -Standard 6oz Ramekins: High Pressure 7 minutes + Quick ReleaseCarefully open the lid (avoid dripping the condensation on the lava cakes!)
Serve: Quickly place the ramekins on a cooling tray, then serve immediately once the ramekins are cooled to touch. Sift powdered sugar on the chocolate lava cake, then decorate the cake with a strawberry. You can also serve with a scoop of ice-cream on your lava cake. Serve & dive into your luxurious showstopping choco lava cake! 😀
Step-by-Step Instant Pot Chocolate Lava Cake Guide
Here are the ingredients for Instant Pot Lava Cake:
Make Lava Cake with Cocoa Powder?
For our first experiment, we used a combination of Bittersweet Chocolate + Cocoa Powder. The result was too rich and dense, so we decided to omit the cocoa powder in our final Instant Pot Lava Cake Recipe.
Which Chocolate to Use for Lava Cake in Instant Pot?
We experimented our lava cake recipe with 3.5oz (100g) Lindt 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate bar & 4 oz (113g) Hershey’s 70% chocolate chunks. They both worked fine. 🙂
