Serves: 4-6
  • For Tart:
  • melted butter 6 Tablespoons
  • sugar ½ cup
  • eggs 1
  • vanilla extract 1 teaspoon
  • all purpose flour ½ cup
  • cocoa powder 3 tablespoons
  • cayenne pepper ½ teaspoon
  • ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon
  • salt ½ teaspoon
  • For Chocolate Glaze:
  • heavy cream ½ cup
  • chopped dark chocolate 4 ounces
  • vegetable oil 2 tablespoons
  • salt ½ teaspoon
  1. Add melted butter in a medium bowl and whisk in sugar, egg and vanilla extract. In another bowl mix flour, cocoa powder, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and salt. Whisk into wet ingredients until smooth.
  2. Add batter into a greased round baking dish that fits into the IMUSA pressure cooker. Place a metal trivet or an upside-down metal steamer basket inside the IMUSA pressure cooker and fill the pressure cooker up with 4 cups of water. Gently place the baking dish on top of trivet. Close the pressure cooker lid and slide blue latch towards you to lock. Set the pressure dial to 2 and place on high heat. When the red security valve pops up, start the timer and cook for 30 minutes. Once the pressure cooker begins to hiss, lower the heat to medium and allow to cook the rest of the time.
  3. Once the 30 minutes are over, remove from heat, and release the pressure by turning the pressure release valve all the way to the right. Be careful as the steam will be hot.
  4. Once the red valve descends, open the pressure cooker and allow cake to cool for about 5 minutes. Using oven mitts, remove cake and invert it onto a serving plate. If the cake is not flat, place it right-side-up and trim the top so that it’s flat, and re-invert it again.
  5. To make glaze, in a small saucepan heat heavy cream until it begins to steam. Pour into a bowl with chocolate and allow to sit for 30 seconds. Whisk in vegetable oil and salt and continue whisking until smooth. Spread about 1cup all over the cake and serve the rest of the glaze as extra sauce for guests.
