Take the extra butter and grease the ramekins. Pour the cake batter into the ramekins so they are half-filled. Place a tablespoon full of peanut butter in the center, then cover with batter so the ramekin is full.

Notes

  • You'll need ramekins to make chocolate peanut butter molten cakes, and the best ramekins are between 6 and 8 ounces. If you don't have ramekins, a large muffin tin will also work.
  • Make sure to grease the ramekins well. Otherwise the cakes will be difficult to remove.
  • Use smooth peanut butter for this recipe.
  • Use tongs to remove the ramekins from the Instant Pot.
