Cake Batter:

Chocolate Ganache:


  • Place the sugar, self raising flour, cocoa and butter into a mixing bowl. Rub the fat into the other dry ingredients until you have a mixture that resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Add the eggs, milk, honey and vanilla and mix well with a fork until you have a thick chocolate cake batter.
  • Flour your egg moulds and pour in your cake batter until almost full. Give them a quick wipe clean to remove any splatters.
  • Place a chunk of chocolate into each mould until it is almost submerged.
  • Place 2 cups of water into the bottom of your Instant Pot inner pot.
  • Add the trivet.
  • Place the lids on your egg moulds and stack them over the trivet and then place the lid on your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
  • Set the time to 12 minutes on manual pressure.
  • When it beeps leave for 10 minutes on natural pressure release.
  • 1Place the chocolate bites on the kitchen worktop and allow to cool with the lids off but the bites still in the moulds. This will take approximately 20 minutes.
  • 1In the air fryer, break up and melt the ganache chocolate with the butter. Just 2 minutes at 160c/320f is enough. Then stir it with a spoon and add in the Greek yoghurt.
  • 1Once cooled remove the chocolate cake bites from the moulds, pour chocolate ganache and grated chocolate over and serve.


You can hurry up the cooling process by placing the cakes in their moulds in the freezer for 5 minutes, instead of cooling them for 20.
We used our favourite Cadburys Flake chocolate for our grated chocolate, but you can use any.
Instant Pot Box Cake Bites - For a quick cooking experiment, I tried this recipe with a box cake mix instead. I poured the just made cake batter into the moulds and found that they cooked just as good. Of course, nothing tastes as good as homemade, but its not bad for a quick chocolate fix. Though do follow our box cake secret tips to make box cake taste better.
