When I first made my decadent chocolate cake, my husband and daughter's expressions said it all. She says it's one of her "most favorites." Later, I brought one of these to our next-door neighbors. Turns out their teenage son, who'd answered the door, ate the whole thing without telling anyone else about it! —Aimee Fortney, Fairview, Tennessee

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh raspberries or sliced fresh strawberries and vanilla ice cream, optional

Directions

Pour water into a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla until blended. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, coffee granules and salt; gradually beat into egg mixture.
Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Cover loosely with foil (to prevent moisture from getting into dish). Place on a trivet with handles; lower into pressure cooker. Lock lid; make sure vent is closed. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high, and set time for 25 minutes.
When finished cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure according to manufacturer's directions. A toothpick should come out with moist crumbs. If desired, serve warm cake with berries and ice cream. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Cook just until the edges of cake start to pull away from the sides of dish.
  • Top with caramel and chopped nuts for a turtle flavor variation.
