Why is chocolate cake so good?

It’s moist, it’s chocolatey, it’s rich. What makes a good cake? It all comes down to the ingredients and how you put them together. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love chocolate cake. The taste, the smell, everything is just great and one of those foods that everyone loves.

What would you serve with this Instant Pot Flourless Chocolate Cake?

Honestly, this cake is so good on its own but you could easily serve it with a scoop of homemade ice cream or freshly made whipped cream, too. Or if you really want to take a walk on the wild side, drizzle on some hot fudge as well.

4. Add 1 cup of water to the bottom of your instant pot.

5. Prep your 6-quart springform cake pan by cutting a parchment liner for the bottom of the pan. Make the parchment liner a bit bigger than the bottom of the pan so that when you go to remove the cake from the bottom of the springform, you can use the parchment paper to easily slide your cake off. Spray the bottom and the sides of the cake pan with cooking spray.

6. Add your cake batter to your cake pan. Cover with aluminum foil tightly.

7. Place your pan on the trivet. Holding the two handles of the trivet, place it in the instant pot on top of the water.

8. Set your instant pot to high pressure for 60 minutes. It will take about five minutes to come to pressure. Once it has done cooking, allow the instant pot to naturally release for 15 minutes. Once the 15 minutes is up, manually release by using a hot pad or towel and bringing the valve toward you to relieve the rest of the pressure.

9. Once the pressure is complete, Twist open the lid to your instant pot. Using a towel pull both handles of the trivet evenly and transfer to a cooling rack. Allow your cake to rest for about two hours.

10. Once your cake has rested and cools, you can enjoy your cake right away, or you can cover it in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days.
