Instructions
  1. Coat the inside of a 7” x 3” springform or push pan with non-stick spray
  2. Layer thinly sliced apples along bottom and sides of pan.
  3. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and diced apples to the prepared cake mix. Stir to combine.
  4. Gently spoon the cake batter into the prepared pan. Cover loosely with foil - do not seal.
  5. Pour 1 1/2 cups water into the Instant Pot, followed by the trivet.
  6. Carefully lower the baking pan onto the trivet, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  7. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 20 minutes.
  8. When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  9. Carefully remove the cake pan from the pot. Place on a cooling rack and allow to set for 5-10 minutes before inverting onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  10. Top with cinnamon sugar and set under the broiler until sugar melts.
  11. Serve warm.

    Hi flourchild20,

    We apologize for any confusion. For any recipe that uses the Manual or Pressure Cook function (these two are interchangeable), it will be automatically set to High Pressure. Unless the recipe indicates to change the pressure to Low, it will always be High Pressure.

    It came out a little mushy and not cooked all the way in the middle. I should have probably put something over the top of it. It still tastes good. More like a bread pudding

    Hi Wdabolt,

    It always is best to cover if the desert isn’t normally baked by steam.

    This will prevent moisture from touching the cake.

    Since the directions were not clear on low or high pressure I used high. Definitely cook time was not long enough. After letting cool I cut into the cake and batter ran out. As for the taste it was ok but nothing special.

    Since you only use half of the white cake mix, do you still use three eggs, as indicated on the box, or do you cut that amount in half, using one and a half egg whites?
