"Forget the oven and cake mixers! These indulgent brownies are easy to make and have a moist fudgy texture. Made in Instant Pot® Duo Mini (3 quart). Use good quality dark chocolate for the rich color and goodness of antioxidants. Serve as is or top the brownie with a chocolate ganache and serve once completely cooled."

  1. Heat chocolate and butter in a glass bowl placed inside a saucepan of simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted and glossy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Let melted chocolate cool to room temperature, about 10 minutes. Add sugar; whisk thoroughly. Mix in yogurt and vanilla extract until combined. Beat in eggs 1 at a time using the whisk. Sift in flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; gently fold into the chocolate mixture until batter is thick and smooth. Do not overmix.
  3. Butter a 6-inch round cake pan with 2-inch sides. Pour batter into the pan and seal top with a sheet of aluminum foil.
  4. Set a trivet inside the pot of an electric pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)). Add 1 cup water. Make sure the steam release handle is in Sealing position according to manufacturers' instructions. Arrange long strips of aluminum foil crosswise under the cake pan; hold the ends to lower cake onto the trivet. Keep foil strips folded down to prevent contact with the lid.
  5. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 25 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 10 minutes.
  6. Check a toothpick inserted into the brownie comes out clean. Cook at high pressure for 3 minutes more if needed. Release pressure using the quick-release method, about 5 minutes. Let brownie cool before cutting.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Sour cream can be substituted for the Greek yogurt, if desired.
  • If you like, you can add chopped walnuts/chocolate chunks at the end of Step 2.
