simple DUMP and GO Instant Pot Dessert – Chocolate Lava Cake

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!

do you love our dump and go recipes? This dessert is so simple to make, you dump, mix and cook it right in your Instant Pot! This Lava Cake is cooked on the outside and gooey in the middle. If you don’t want it as gooey – you can always cook it a bit longer!

acquire the pyrex bowls I used here:

OR These are the ramekins I have:

Find my recipe below:


1 cup dark chocolate chips (or milk chocolate chips)
1/2 cup butter
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla

put chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, remove from microwave and stir.
put back in the microwave for another 30 seconds and stir until smooth.
In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, flour, and vanilla together until smooth.
Pour chocolate mixture into egg mixture and stir well to combine.

Spray four 6-7-ounce ramekins with cooking spray.
Fill each ramekin 2/3 of the way full with batter.
put steam rack in the bottom of the Instant Pot and add 2 cups of water.
put ramekins on the steam rack, placing 3 of the ramekins directly on the rack and one over the top and in the center of the 3 ramekins (as seen in photo above).
put lid on Instant Pot and put tab to “sealing”. Manually set the time to 10 minutes.
fast release the pressure and carefully remove ramekins from Instant Pot.
Serve with ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry on top! (Or however you want to serve them)

If using bigger pyrex bowls to cook them (love mine) You will need to cook them for 14 – 15 minutes!!!
