Can You Use Pyrex Dishes in Pressure Cooker 

Yes, you can use pyrex dishes in the pressure cooker/ Instant Pot. I use the 6 oz bowls and I find that they are a perfect size and four fit perfectly in my 6 quart Instant Pot. 

You can use other brands of small bowls just make sure they are oven safe, so they will hold up under pressure. 

What Is Inside Instant Pot Better Than Sex Chocolate Lava Cake

You will find a lava center inside a molten lava cake or what I call chocolate lava cake. Because of the cooking process, it allows you to have a cake that offers a souffle style texture in the center. Moelleux is also what this type of cake is known for meaning soft.  

Does Chocolate Lava Cake Need to be Refrigerated

If you don’t eat all your cakes right away, just allow them to cool completely, then wrap up and toss in the fridge or even freezer. Then warm them up in the microwave when ready to eat. The chocolate lava cake is best fresh out of the Instant Pot. 

Best Way to Heat Up A Instant Pot Better Than Sex Chocolate Lava Cake

Best Chocolate For Molten Lava Cakes 

I find that semi-sweet is the perfect sweetness of chocolate for your cakes. I have attempted milk chocolate and I found it made the cakes not as rich, and it left you wanting more. The semi-sweet chocolate seems to be the best chocolate for molten lava cakes hands down. 

If you love chocolate and are looking for that standout dessert to make, you need to pick up supplies and give this a go. A wonderful dessert to serve company, treat your family or end your day with a midnight snack.
