  1. Grease the inside of two 4 ounce ramekins with the softened butter. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar into each ramekin and rotate it around so that the entire ramekin is coated with sugar. Set aside.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate chips in microwave safe dish in the microwave on 50% power for 1-2 minutes or in a double broiler. Stir until melted and well incorporated.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk eggs and egg yolk.
  4. Add the vanilla and melted butter and chocolate mixture to the bowl. Mix well.
  5. Add powdered sugar, flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Mix until well incorporated.
  6. Pour batter evenly into prepared ramekin.
  7. Pour ¾ cup water and the trivet in the liner of the Instant Pot. Set ramekins side by side on trivet.
  8. Secure lid with the valve in the sealing position. Pressure cook/Manual on HIGH for 9 minutes.
  9. When cooking time expires perform a quick pressure release (QPR) and turn Instant Pot off. Carefully remove the lid and using oven mitts, take the ramekins out of the Instant Pot.
  10. Allow the ramekins to sit for 5 minutes. Loosen the lava cake by running a small knife along the inside of the ramekins. Place a small plate over a ramekin and invert so the lava cake comes out and sits upside down on the plate. Repeat for the other lava cake.

  12. Serve warm.
