  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • ½ cup (125g) unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon (9g) all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (52g) granulated sugar
  • 3.5 - 4 oz (100g - 113g) bittersweet dark chocolate
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5ml) vanilla essence
  • A pinch salt
  • Powdered sugar for topping


Melt 100g - 113g 70% cacao dark chocolate with ½ cup (125g) unsalted butter.* Pro Tip: use the double boiler method or the microwave (30-secs interval & mix).


In a large mixing bowl, add 2 large eggs, 2 large egg yolks, ¼ cup (52g) granulated sugar, and a pinch of salt. Mix ingredients for 1 minute with a hand mixer using medium speed.


Slowly pour in and mix the chocolate-butter mixture with the egg mixture (*Pro Tip: the chocolate-butter mixture can be hot, so you don't want to pour them all in at once).


Add ½ tsp (2.5ml) vanilla extract. Then sift in 1 tbsp (9g) all-purpose flour. Mix everything together with a spatula until everything is well mixed.


If you are planning to remove the lava cakes from the ramekins to serve, spray the ramekins with cooking spray. Carefully pour the lava cake mixture into 4 x 6oz-ramekins. Then tap the ramekins against the counter a few times to remove air bubbles.


Add 1 cup (250ml) cold water in to the inner pot. Place trivet inside, then stack the ramekins on top. Choose manual Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 7 - 9 minutes + Quick Release* *Pressure Cooking Times: -Thicker Pyrex Glass Ramekins: High Pressure 8 - 9 minutes + Quick Release -Standard Ramekins: High Pressure 7 minutes + Quick Release


Carefully open the lid (avoid dripping the condensation on the lava cakes!)


Quickly place the ramekins on a cooling tray, then serve immediately once the ramekins are cooled to touch. Sift powdered sugar on the chocolate lava cake, then decorate the cake with a strawberry. You can also serve with a scoop of ice-cream on your lava cake.


Serve & dive into your luxurious showstopping choco lava cake!
