Why is it called ‘better than sex” Instant Pot Lava Cake?

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can you Use Pyrex Dishes in a 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.

What makes the lava?

You will find a lava center inside a cake or what I call chocolate lava. 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 them 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 Re-Heat

If you want to reheat your cake you can do the microwave which I mentioned above or place it upside down and put it in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. This will give you that silky smooth lava center that you want. 

Best Chocolate to use

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 these cakes hands down.

  1. Looks delicious! My guy just got a promotion at work, so I’m going to make these for him tonight, to celebrate 🙂

      1. Thanks! They were delicious! My kids always ask for the ones at Dominos, and they both raved about these. Said they were soooo much better (duh!) and easy! I’m going to teach the kids how to make these.

        thanks for the great recipe!

      2. I tried making this exactly as written. It tasted good but no lava! Someone brought up that maybe it’s supposed to be 6 TEASPOONS of flour instead of 6 Tablespoons! Can you clarify please?

      3. I want to make these to take to somebody’s place for dessert, but I’m wondering if I make them at home will they still have the melting lava centre when I serve them several hours later?

        1. I can’t speak to this recipe specifically, but I made it before dinner and served it immediately after dinner and it continued cooking on the counter and the lava had baked into a solid cake by the time we ate it.

  2. I want very much to make this but I live alone. Can these be stored and reheated later? While I’m sure I could eat them all at one sitting, I don’t think that would be wise.

    1. @Anne, where can I buy al the aceseries of the instant pot no one can help me I have a defy.please help me

        1. I made these without covering and water condensation from the lid dripped in. Three tasted fine but one was too soggy to eat. Did I do something wrong? My husband and daughter loved them though!

          1. This question wasn’t answered clearly, so we made it with a full 8 oz stick of butter and they are a total disaster. 4 oz is only a half stick; is that the right quantity even though it says full stick?

  3. What do you mean, you put one bowl on top? One stacked on top of the other bowls? I just got my IP today so I have a lot to learn.

  4. Looks great! I’ve got a larger family, could I double the recipe and stack using a second trivet between the layers? Thanks

  5. I used 4 heart shaped ramekins in my 8 quart IP, manual 9 minutes and quick pressure release. I removed them immediate, but there was no liquid inside 🙁 . Still tasted great, warm cake with vanilla ice cream.

        1. I do 7-8 minutes in my 8 quart with 5 ramikens. The size of the dish and the size of the pot does matter. Just experiment a few times.

  6. Can any steps be done ahead of time? I don’t want to be cooking dessert while we and our guests are still eating dinner! Thanks!

  7. This looks like a fantastic recipe & I can’t wait to try it in the IP. Need a clarification. Should that be a teaspoon of vanilla or does it really call for a tablespoon? Thanks!

  8. Thank you for the recipe! I have not used my IP that much. Do you use a foil sling to remove the bowls? Is the sling under the trivet? I am scared about pulling these out successfully. Thank you.

  9. Newbie question: 9 minutes after the IP reaches pressure and starts its own countdown or 9 minutes total? I guess I’ll find out on my own since I’m writing this after it’s in there. Still curious.

  10. Can this be made with less sugar? 1/4 cup of powdered sugar for each cake is a lot of sugar! We all ended up with painful stomach aches after eating it (tried the leftovers the next day too) and found out too much sugar can be a cause.

    1. I used 1/2 cup of organic coconut sugar in place of the powered sugar, and it was plenty sweet… I probably could have reduce it down to 1/4 cup. Also, I made it gluten free by using coconut flour. My guests and family loved it!

  11. Pingback: Instant Pot Chocolate Lava Cake | Very 4D
  12. This sounds so great! Could you use 6 small ramekins? If so, how many minutes would you do the smaller ones?
    Could you make the batter and keep in the fridge to use later?

  13. Oh my golly gosh! What a winner! This was my first recipe in my pressure pot – thank you for sharing your recipe <3 . I found it a little on the sweet side even though I used dark chocolate. If I reduce the amount of sugar do you think will it affect anything except the sweetness (e.g. the cake set, the yummy gooey-ness)? But still a winner!

  14. My instant pot petered out at the last minute so I put these in the oven at 450 for 15 minutes. They came out great but slightly in the dry side, 13-14 min would have been perfect. Delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Hi Bobbi, have you tried it with the silicone moulds?
      Pls let me know if you found out how long they need to cook. 🙂

  15. My husband loves these. I’m going to surprise him tonight! A few of us other bloggers just started doing an instant pot link party every other Wednesday. Two of us are also nurses! We would love for you to share some of your recipes at the party this week!

  16. What I do with the silicone cups is balance each one in a small canning ring to keep them at attention. If you have
    a tall rack maybe you could use that as a second layer.

  17. I’d love to try this; have a question before I do: Is the lava part cooked and still liquidy, or is it undercooked cake mix? I tried a version of a pineapple upside down cake and was less than pleased with the recipe, and would love to have this dessert turn out well!! Help, please!

  18. I made these tonight for my two boys (2 left living at home). It was easy to make/follow the instructions and with regular at home ingrédients. It came out well from the bowl and turned out like it was meant (cooked / harder outside and totally goey Inside). The boys loved it. They did find it a bit too sweet for their taste buds as they are not that much into sweets (more salty kind of kids). Therefore, I will be making it again, but with less sugar. I am even thinking of bringing my IP at school and make the less sugar version for my fellow colleagues for mother’s day.

    Thank you for a quick and yummy dessert.

  19. These were great. I don’t understand some reviews saying it was too sweet. But then I guess sugar is my favorite food group 🙂
    After I sprayed the ramekins I sprinkled granulated sugar inside., then turned them upside down to shake out excess (like flouring a cake pan). I didn’t really taste it, but they did plop out of the ramekins easy.

    Now for the bad news part of this recipe……….. it’s way too easy to make…… way too fast to cook because of the fabulous instant pot…….. which makes this recipe very dangerous. I will want to be making them several times a week which isn’t so good since I am trying to lose weight 🙂 Thanks for a awesome recipe!

  20. Mine turned out way too gooey… the cake was barely cooked about 1/4 inch in. The cakes collapsed before we cut into them. I’m thinking I should add a couple more minutes to cook? Would being at a higher altitude make that happen? Not sure why they didn’t cook enough… Any ideas?

    1. Yes, the higher the altitude the less pressure in the pot so you should cook them longer. Google High Altitude Instant Pot adjustments and you’ll find the adjustment for your altitude (basically increase cook time by 5% for every 1000 feet above 2000 feet above sea level. I have a home at 7000 feet, so I would adjust the cook time for this recipe by 25% (7000-2000 = 5000/1000 = 5 x 5% = 25%) or cook for approx. 11 minutes instead of 9. I’m looking forward to trying this the next time we’re up at our summer home.

    2. These are fantastic!! Ours came out runny, too, so I tried cooking them up to 11 minutes with the same results. I’m guessing it was because I used 1/2 semi sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 dark chocolate melting wafers (for dipping strawberries). The melting wafers melt very easily, so as long as the cake is warm they are liquidy. It certainly didn’t affect the taste, though, as they are very addicting! Thank you, thank you for the recipe!

  21. Could this be made in a round pan? I don’t have the small remekins. I have the 6qt, would the time change if I could use a pan?Thanks!

  23. So I just made this and it was terrific! The only tragedy is that I attempted to do five cups because I had extra because I made two with peanut butter, but one of the little cups shifted during cooking and it fell into the other cup, so I lost two 🙁 This was actually fine because we were only three people, but any idea how I can prevent this from happening next time?

  24. I made this and it was amazing! (Girlfriend and kids agreed)

    It wasn’t better than sex but it came in a very, very close second. (Girlfriend disagrees but what does she know.)

  28. Are you at a high altitude? I’m at over 5k so wanted to know if you weren’t so I could make time adjustments.

  29. Delicious! I used 4 oz silicone cups from IKEA – 6 minutes cooked them perfectly. This is so simple to make.

  30. Clarify three eggs , one egg yolk don’t understand , I just order the instant pot last nite, but I have the one from Walmart I love it, not the teflon pot.love every one help.

  31. I made this tonight. Sprayed the cups with PAM like instructions said to do. But, the cake still stuck to the cup and ripped, causing a lot of the lava to spilled out. Any idea what happened? They still tasted good.

  32. This was decadent!! Making again tonight for a family member that missed out, and three others are not complaining:) Only wish it made more!

  33. OMG, truly wonderful. Made the first batch exactly as directed. Wonderful but I wanted one a bit smaller. So, second try, only had the dark chocolate cherry filled chips, and made 1/2 recipe, 1/4 c regular sugar. These filled 4 -40z jelly jars, cooked for 8 min. Topped with raspberries. Amazing and not quite as many calories!!! Next time will probably use original recipe and 8 -4oz jars, whooohooo, win/win.

  36. I just made these, carefully cutting in half to make two, and kept same cooking times as you’ve mentioned. Unfortunately they didn’t come out in one piece but half stuck in dish – lots of lava though, and they do look yummy. Should I increase cooking time, or maybe let cool a bit first before removing?

  37. 1 tablespoon of vanilla??? do you mean 1 teaspoon??? 1 tablespoon sounds like a LOT of vanilla? just wanted to make sure i’m main this correct.

      1. In an earlier comment someone asked the same question and you said you put in 1 Tablespoon. In this comment you say 1 teaspoon. 🙂 Which is it?

  38. I did adjust a few things… we Don’t like super sweet things in my house… so I cut the sugar back to 1/2 cup… also subbed coconut oil for butter… turned out AMAZING!! it’s a keeper <3 <3 <3

  39. I made these tonight but only put two in the pot (saved 2 for later). They weren’t cooked after nine minutes and qpr. Pressure was set on more/high (I have the duo plus). Did I miss something?

    1. Jessica, I’m curious…are you close to sea level or at a higher altitude? I live at the beach and am just above sea level. I followed the recipe exactly and made 4 cakes. After 9 minutes, the tops of the cakes did not look like they were done at all…like they were still liquid or had water on top of them. I cooked for 2 additional minutes. They looked more done, so I took them out and served them. They were good but no lava. I’m sure that was partly due to the 2 extra minutes of cooking time, but I was afraid they were not done after 9 minutes.

  40. I made them last night but they weren’t cooked, I added more time and it had a jello like texture. I’m not sure what I did wrong but I want to try again tonight. I have the duo plus 6 at

  41. I have may these a few times and every time they are AMAZING!!! If you haven’t tried the chocolate peanut butter version, you are missing out!!!

  42. Really tasty and easy! Has anyone tried this recipe using the silicone egg bite molds? I wonder if the middle would be cooked through since they’re so small?

  43. I followed the recipe but mine turned out runny with a pudding like consistency. There was no firmness to it. What did I do wrong??

  45. I made these last night and while they were tasty, there was no lava center, just dense cake. Were they perhaps cooked too long? I really want them to work next time!

  46. I just made this recipe and it was amazing!! I followed the recipe and put 2 bowls in at a time for 9 min. They came out great, not as much lava as the picture but was still gooey on the inside and the kids loved them.

  47. If I wanted to make more than 4 lava cakes, would I need to increase the cook time?…that’s IF I can fit 4 ramekins in my 6 quart…

  48. I made two batches of these. The first batch was yummy but no lava in the center. The second batch came out perfectly gooey and fudgy in the middle! The only 2 things I can think of that might have been different: either I used large eggs in the gooey batch (as opposed to Costco xlg eggs) or, after the quick release I removed the lid faster on the second batch not allowing the center to cook all the way through. Give them a try- they are amazing! Side note- I bought the wrong sized ramekins 8 oz instead of 6. I could only cook 2 at a time, but still worked!

  49. I have an 8qt would you stay with the 9mins cook time?
    First time they didnt turn out the outside was chewy like rather then cake like so wanted to check as we wanted to try them again

  50. I made this dairy free without too much hope because I’ve found it hard to replicate lots of desserts without dairy. I used Smart Balance butter and dairy free semi-sweet choco chips. OMG they were PERFECT. I am so excited to have a yummy dessert to make for my dairy free husband. Thank you so much!!

    We did use and combo of 7oz and 8oz dishes, which was all I had. I cooked for 8 minutes and the 7 inch were lava-y but not the 8inch. Still so great though!

  51. Please spell out teaspoon or Tablespoon, comments you say sorry its wrong, which is correct, it is not fixed yet. They taste like rubber.

  52. Is it TBS OR TSP for the vanilla and flour? You said in the comments you’d fix the recipe but you didn’t and I just read the comments after preparing the batter. Hope it turns out okay. But fix the recipe if it is incorrect please.

  53. I have 4″ springform pans, would the cook time be the same for them? These would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!

  54. Delicious! Only thing I would change in future is either cutting the sugar down to half cup or using dark chocolate since it was too sweet for me. Was apprehensive using 8qt instant pot after seeing some of the comments here so I did a test run with only one cake and it turned out perfect. I read up on how to modify based on size of pot and for 8qt you just increase water in pot to 1.5 cups. Quantity does not affect cook time, only size. I used 8oz Pyrex type bowls but only filled it to about a little over half to duplicate the 4oz cake size in this recipe. I also let it sit out to cool for 5 mins to let it set a bit before inverting it upside down on a plate and it slid out easily with a few taps on the bowl. Cake held it’s form and had a gooey lava center!

  55. My friend made this, it is just as good as the restaurants I’ve had it at.

    I don’t have an instant pot, do you have any suggestions to make this a in slow cooker or oven please?

  56. I made these tonight for Valentine’s Day for my family and they were PERFECT!!!! I am SOOOO stinkin’ excited! I used 4 7oz ramekins (because that’s what I already owned) and had to balance them a bit precariously in my pot…but it worked. They came out perfect. At first I thought they weren’t done. They didn’t look very good (thank goodness we flip them upside down because the bottoms looked great, the tops…well my son said they looked like our individual meatloaves look!) SO, if you think they aren’t done, don’t look done…they may be perfect. Mine were cooked yet in the center it was perfect gooey molten lava! THANK YOU for sharing this recipe! I followed it exactly!

  57. I only had ball jars first time I made these and they were amazing. Broke open when I dropped them out so bought ramekins but 4 oz size. I assume I should shorten the time. Any idea how long for 4 oz ramekins?

    1. In the US one stick equals a quarter pound. You get 4 sticks in 1 pound of butter. And I do believe that tsp/TSP = teaspoon and tbs/TBS = tablespoon. No matter if you use upper or lower case while writing. Hope that helps.

  58. I followed directions to a t but ended up with delicious chocolate soup. Any idea what I did wrong? I used 6oz ceramic ramikens

    1. In the US one stick equals a quarter pound. You get 4 sticks in 1 pound of butter. And I do believe that tsp/TSP = teaspoon and tbs/TBS = tablespoon. No matter if you use upper or lower case while writing. Hope that helps.

  64. Hi! I tried the recipe of the better than sex chocolate lava cake and although it came out super nice there was no lava…what changes would you have me done ? I put 4 ramekin on the same level on the trivet (there was some mixture left for a 5th one but I did not had a 5th ramekin

    Please let me know

  65. These little cakes are just magical! I did mine in the silicone egg bite mold. 6 min on manual. Most of them busted open as I was taking them out so next time I will let them cool for a few minutes before trying to remove. You could also try 7 min but I thought the ratio of cake to lava was perfect at 6. Great recipe!

  66. I have 4oz ramekins that I want to use. Do you think I need to reduce the cooking time so the lava doesn’t dry up?
    Thanks!

  69. I made the recipe exactly as written and it came out perfectly. Could not eat all at once so I experimented with saving them. One I left out to cool on the counter (when it was totally cooled I put it in the fridge) and the other I put right in the fridge to cool. I reheated each for 35 seconds in the microwave. The one cooled directly in the fridge was eaten the next day and was nice and gooey inside. The one cooled on the counter was eaten two days after being made and was less gooey – not exactly cakey but not as runny – but still delicious! Don’t know if how I cooled them made the difference or if the time between cooking and eating was a factor. Guess I’ll just have to make some more! ?

  70. I made these yesterday and followed exactly. They looked great but when I turned them onto the plates they just fell apart. Taste delicious but just ran flattened to a mess. Do I need to cook longer or do I need to cook in the ramekins for a while? Ideas?

    1. Exact same problem here. Altitude here is 5400 ft, I used 4, 4oz ramekin and followed mixing and cooking instructions. Tasted great, but gooey flat mess. Increase the time by a minute perhaps???

  72. Pretty good!
    I did 1 TBS of vanilla, and 6 TBS of flour. I did 3/4 cup powdered sugar, but will probably do the full 1 C next time. After cook, I let cakes rest for about 3-5 minutes before turning them over into my dish. They came out perfectly…just be patient and carefully and slowly lift up. Inside was lava, outside was firm. I used four 4 oz ramikens.
    I hope this helps answer a few questions I’ve seen posted. Oh, and my elevation is 4500’, so I made no alterations in cook time.

    1. I made these in 8oz ball jars with great results. I increased cooking to 11 mins and they were delicious

  91. These are delicious and turned out perfectly, moist in the center! I’m usually that person who somehow manages to mess up the simplest recipe. I used the exact ingredients (including 1 stick of butter, meaning 1/2 cup or 8 T.). I used Pam with flour and the cakes came out easily.

  93. Absolutely fabulous recipe!
    Can these be prepared ahead of time, and cooked later in the day? Should they be at room temp before putting in IP? Thanks for your help!

  94. hi made twice with 6oz ramakins can only fill 3 am I missing something they are good and very liquid inside

  95. Just to clarify. 6 Tablespoons of flour. Ot 6 teaspoons. Reading through the comments and I am still not sure. Thank you.

  96. Omg I can’t stop thinking about these! I made them a week ago for my family. My daughter couldn’t believe I made them from scratch. The taste is absolutely amazing! Very rich and smooth! Can’t wait to make them again! Reading through the comments, I’m glad to see I can refrigerate the batter to make them later. Do I need to adjust the time if I decide to cook one at a time?

  97. Oh. My. Gosh. Killer recipe. This tender cake is outstanding! I’m craving it so bad right now. I believe the taste is just phenomenal. I’m planning to make this for our friend’s gathering next week. Gonna follow your recipe precisely. Hope I won’t fail miserably. I’d like the cake to wow our friends.
    Thank you a lot for sharing this fab idea and all of your useful recommendations. The info you provide is remarkable. You’ve ALREADY answered all of my questions. I will definitely be back for more of the recipes. I’ve just bookmarked your blog. I’m so happy to have come across it. Keep up the good work!

    Best wishes,

  98. I wanted to make the lava cake for my girls for the holidays but there doesnt seem to be a recipe. Isee a video but no ingredients and amounts are listed. Can you help with this?

  99. food looks good, Insta Pot is a piece of junk though I would tell people to buy one. The one I had arrived broken and the company wont answerer my request for help fixing it, I used it once.

  100. I followed the recipe exactly EXCEPT it says one tablespoon of vanilla extract when I think she meant teaspoon, and I was out of vanilla extract so substituted orange extract, and the lava turned out perfectly, just like in pictures. Not sure what happened for you. And I did use 6 tablespoons of all purpose flour.

  101. Looks amazing! Quick question… I have a 3 quart instant pot. Would the cooking time be different? Thank you! Cannot wait to try making this!

  102. I used 3 Pioneer Woman ramekins from Walmart. They are 9 oz. I followed the recipe, 1/2 cup of butter, 6 Tablespoons of flour, 1 Tablespoon of vanilla. I only used 3/4 cup of sugar. They came out perfect. Be sure to lift your IP lid straight up so condensation doesn’t drip on your cakes. Thank you for the recipe. Hubby said it was better than Carnival cruiseline’s warm melting chocolate cake.

  103. Absolutely perfect! Ooey and gooey…a total hit. I followed your directions exactly, and it was a complete success!

  104. I tried the recipe with the silicone egg bite mold, for 6 minutes and QR, they were not cooked at all. I even let them stand for a good 6 to 8 min before flipping the mold. What a disaster 🙂 next time i will try 9 min like the original recipe.

  105. Absolutely decadent! I added the whole bag of semisweet chocolate chips – can you tell I love chocolate? I also divided the batter into 8 glass dishes so the batter would not overflow or stick to my racks. We put a plastic lid on the glass dishes and store on kitchen counter. To reheat, pop in the microwave for 30 seconds on high (just enough to see a chocolate spout bubble up), top with vanilla ice cream and Devour! Our favorite dessert ever!!!

  106. I followed recipe exactly and they were soooo good although mine didn’t come out of the ramekins nicely so just ate them in the ramekin. I ate 2 by myself 😩 oh and I did add some espresso powder which gave it a slightly different and delicious flavor. Thank u!!

  108. This is the first recipe I give to any new Instant Pot newbie I run across.

    (Yeah, I admit I may come across like an MLM salesperson.)

    My then 14 year old son (at the time of recipe discovery), now 19 years old, national guard recruit, now in college and chagrined that Instant Pot’s are not allowed in the dorm rooms, often asks for these when he is at home.

    So simple, so much joy results. I’m surprised there have been no comments in the last 5 years.

  109. Can I make this right in the pot without rain kind and just scoop and serve? I don’t care if it is pretty

  110. These are amazing! I’ve made them 2xs and they were great both times. I am considering making 1 1/2 batch for 6 servings. Has anyone done this in a 6 qt instant pot? I was going to balance the top 3 on a wire rack over the bottom 3. Any advice as to how the recipe works making 1 and 1/2 times the recipe?
