💕KETO Lava Cake (Instant Pot) #valentinesday #dessert #chocolate #shorts

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Keto Lava Cake (Instant Pot):
Find a printable recipe here: http://indigonili.com/lava-cake-keto-instant-pot
1/4 cup (2oz) butter or ghee
2.5oz chocolate of your choice (I used a Lakanto 55% chocolate bar but 1/2 cup of Lily’s or any other chocolate chips would work great)
2 tbsp sweetener of your choice (I used Trader Joe’s allulose stevia blend)
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
1 whole egg
3 tbsp flour substitute of your choice
**See below for ideas**

Flour options I’ve tried:
💕Protein Power Flour (this is just dehydrated egg white bread ground into flour. This is what I used in the video and it worked great!) Thanks to @Loving It On Keto for the power flour inspiration!
💕Half almond flour plus half arrowroot starch (while this has some added carbs from the arrowroot, it is fairly minimal and gives a wonderful stop result)
💕Cassava flour (not keto but still gluten/grain free)
💕This recipe is very customizable so feel free to try any other low carb baking/flour mixes that you have and love. The only flour I’d be wary of is coconut flour as it is very absorbent! 

Prepare your Instant Pot by adding 2 cups of water to the bottom of the liner. put the trivet into the liner. This will allow the lava cakes to sit above the water and cook via the steam. Prepare 2 Pyrex custard cups by spraying with cooking spray.

Combine the butter or ghee and chocolate In a microwave safe bowl. Microwave and stir until melted and smooth. Add in the sweetener, vanilla, egg yolk, whole egg and flour substitute, whisk together until fully combined. Divide the batter between the custard cups and put on the trivet in your Instant Pot liner. Lock the lid and make sure the steam release is set to the “sealing” position. Choose Pressure Cook (high) and set the cook time to 8 minutes. When the cook time is complete, fast release the pressure. Quickly remove the cakes from the Instant Pot. Loosen the sides of the lava cakes with a butter knife and invert onto a serving plate. Top with powdered sugar, whipped cream or ice cream if desired and serve immediately with a cup of creamy coffee. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!
