Instant Pot Better Than SEX Chocolate Lava Cake



 This cake is so fast to make, preparation time 5 minutes and cook time 9 minutes in the Instant Pot! 

On a recent "Glamping" trip, I made this in our motorcoach for my daughter-in-law and son for their 6th wedding anniversary! They loved it! 




Instant Pot Better Than SEX Chocolate Lava Cake
                              adapted from Adventures of a Nurse

1 cube/stick unsalted butter (8 Tablespoons/ 1/2 cup) (or see conversion chart to right)
3 eggs room temperature
1 egg yolk room temperature
1 cup  bitterweet chocolate chopped
1 T. pure vanilla
6 T. flour
1 cup powdered sugar

You will need 4 glass or ceramic ramekins, bowls or wide mouth canning jars - 6 ounce. Spray with Pam or a like spray.

Method-

Melt the butter and chocolate together in microwave or in a double boiler. 

Mix powdered sugar into the chocolate mixture.

Beat the eggs and egg yolk together and add to the chocolate mixture until combined.

Mix in vanilla and flour until well combined.



Divide the batter between the four ramekins.

Place the trivet into the instant pot with one cup of water.



Place the ramekins on the trivet with three on on bottom and one balancing on the three. (I have a 6 quart IP)

Put your Instant Pot to "High Pressure" and time to 9 minutes.

When finished do a Quick Release.

Using your Instant pot mitts or like, remove the ramekins from the instant pot and flip onto your plates. Some may crack when you flip and the lava will flow out.

Top with your favorite topping! I sifted powder sugar on top lightly, put a dollop of freshly whipped heavy cream on the side and garnished with a strawberry and mint leaf sprig.

Other toppings-
Caramel
ice cream
chocolate syrup/fudge topping
