Instructions
  1. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the sugar, vanilla, and butter together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time until well-combined.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add flour mixture to egg mixture until well-combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Spray an 8-inch spring-form pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon batter into pan and smooth the top; cover loosely with aluminum foil. Pour water into Instant Pot®. Place wire trivet into the bottom of the pot and set the pan on top. Place lid on pot and lock into place to seal. Pressure Cook or Manual on High Pressure for 30 minutes. Let sit 10 minutes. Use Quick Pressure Release. While still warm, cut into wedges and serve.

    First cake ive made in the instant pot! This is very dense, like fudge. It’s delicious! I used caramel chips because i ran out of chocolate… and i frosted it with peanut butter frosting. So good!

    Easy, tasty recipe!! I absolutely love it. Once done, we sliced it and found it a little soft…perhaps undercooked…but it was just right. My daughter 11 yo thought it a little sweet and thinks next time we dial down on the chocolate chips . I on the other hand LOVED it!!

    Im going to go ahead and take a guess that the commenter “not” never graduated high school.
    The cake was very mushy. I added an extra 15 minutes and it didn’t do much. Oh well.

    I made this cake last weekend but added half a cup of coffee because the batter was very thick and clumpy. Thirty minutes was not enough time to cook it, I ended up cooking it for 55 minutes on the cake function. I frosted it with chocolate buttercream. It was very dense but velvety and melts in your mouth. My whole family raved about it and want me to make it again.

    A really dense fudgy cake. If it’s fluffy and moist you are looking for, look elsewhere.

    I loved this cake! We love our IP but haven’t tried making dessert before. I can’t have dairy so I substituted Crisco for the butter. The batter was a little thick so I added a table spoon of almond milk and cooked it accordingly. It was perfect! It reminded me of cake-like brownies. Perfect for my chocolate craving! My husband enjoyed it too! Thank you! So easy and great for avoiding the oven in the heat of summer!

    Did not set for me either. Put it back in for another 10 min on high with a quick release after 5 min. Better, but will do 45 min high pressure next time.

    I loved the simplicity of the recipe. I tweaked a couple of things: I used dark brown sugar and added 1/4 cup of flaxseed meal. I did have to add additional 40 min of high pressure cooking so next time I make this, I will set for 90 minutes. I think that will produce a very nice, moist, edible cake instantly! 40 minutes cook time as per recipe was not adequate time to prepare this yummy chocolate cake.
