I can’t believe I even like it. This Instant Pot Lava Cake is some seriously rich, gooey, chocolatey awesomeness. You all probably know by now that I’m not really a dessert person, let alone a chocolate person. But this??? THIS Instant Pot lava cake can turn us non-chocolate types into it’s-the-only-dessert-I’ll-ever-eat-again kind of people. Not only do I like it… I love it!!
We take our Instant Pot Mini camping with us (even more often than we take our kids camping with us… lol!). It’s the perfect size to bring along and store in the RV. And cleanup is a breeze. It puts out awesome stuff like this Steel Cut Oatmeal and this Whole “rotisserie” Chicken in less than 30 minutes. So I figured I’d give it a shot with dessert. And boy am I glad I did!
As much as I am not a dessert person, my hubby is a dessert person. Chocolate is at the top of his list. Like way at the top. I’m pretty sure if he had to give up all food groups except one, chocolate would be the group he’d keep… So every once in awhile I make him a chocolatey treat. (I know… I should probably do it more often.) This Instant Pot lava cake is in a class by itself and takes less than 20 minutes to make – start to finish (yes, I should definitely do it more often!) And since this recipe is made in the Instant Pot Mini (3 quart), it’s perfect for just the two of us. 🙂

Here’s How To Make Instant Pot Lava Cake
Melt some butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Add some eggs (and an extra yolk), vanilla, powdered sugar, a bit of flour, and a pinch of salt and cayenne pepper (trust me on that one; it makes a difference!). Blend it all and pour into a couple of prepared ramekins, put on the trivet in the Instant Pot (with a cup of water underneath), set the timer to 9 minutes, and BAM! You’ve got one of the Most. Amazing. Desserts. Ever!
Oh… did I happen to mention that I’ve written an Instant Pot authorized cookbook? Woohoo! It’s specific to the Mini (’cause, like I said, we take it camping in the RV all the time!). It’s in the publisher’s hands now and will be out May 1, 2018. Pre-orders in March, so make sure to sign up for the email list and you’ll get a notification when it’s out if you’re interested.
And there you have it – the dessert that turned this non-dessert-non-chocolate person into an OMG-when-can-I-make-that-again person! I’m sure my hubby will be happy with that!
