  • 4 oz. semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp instant coffee granules
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 Tbsp all purpose flour

  1. Grease the bottom and sides of four 6 oz ramekins. Coat each with sugar.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter: In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter and chocolate on medium heat for about 1 minute. Stir and repeat heating at 15-second intervals, until the chocolate is melted and smooth but a few small pieces of chocolate still remain. Keep stirring to allow the chocolate to completely melt in the residual heat.

  4. Whisk in eggs, yolks, coffee and vanilla.
  5. Stir in flour and salt.
  6. Divide batter among the ramekins.
  7. Pour 2 cups water into the Instant Pot’s main compartment (inner pot) and place trivet in water.
  8. Place 3 ramekins on the trivet and place 1 more on top of them, in the middle (staggered). Close the Instant Pot. Make sure the steam release handle is in the ‘Sealing’ position.
  9. Cook on ‘Manual’ (or ‘Pressure Cook’) for 7 to 9 minutes. *
  10. Do a Quick Release of steam and open the Instant Pot.
  11. Use the trivet to remove the ramekins. Gently dab off any condensation from the surface of the cake.
  12. Dust the Insant Pot chocolate lava cakes with powdered sugar.
