As an Enneagram 7, I basically live for the next holiday, the next birthday party, the next vacation, the next super exciting adventure, etc… Anything that I can look forward to keeps me going! So, now that we’re past the Super Bowl, it’s on to Valentine’s Day. Notice – this is a slightly larger molten lava cake, but definitely not too big that it can’t be enjoyed by a party of 1 🙂 If your Valentine’s is going to consist of chilling on the couch with a glass of wine and your favorite show, this Pressure Cooker Red Velvet Raspberry Molten Cake is the perfect addition to that party as well!

I have a couple of other molten lava cake recipes on the site, but we can never have too many! It’s my all-time favorite dessert to make in the pressure cooker because it takes no time at all, is so fudgy and delicious, and guaranteed to wow your guests.

With this lava cake, I choose to mash up fresh raspberries and tuck them into the batter so that when it cooks, you cut it open and have the bright tangy raspberry filling that cuts right through the richness of the chocolate. Chocolate lava cakes can be very rich, so it’s so important to have a bit of tang or zest or salt to give your taste buds a respite!

Although this is the perfect Valentine’s Dessert, I think you should probably give them a taste test, or 2, or 3, or 7, before the big day 😉
