This moist breakfast treat comes together quickly thanks to Bisquick baking mix, which has all the leavening mixed into it. Blueberries are a favorite in my family, but you can also use fresh or frozen raspberries or blackberries, if you prefer.

Instructions
  1. Spray an 8-inch springform pan that will fit into the Instant Pot with cooking spray. Set a tall trivet in the pot and add 1 1/2 cups hot water. (The trivet should sit high enough in the pot so that the bottom of the cake pan does not touch the water; a trivet with 2-inch-high legs is ideal.)
  2. Make the streusel topping: In a medium bowl, mix the topping ingredients together; set aside.
  3. Make the cake: In a large bowl, whisk together the Bisquick and brown sugar. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the milk and egg. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until there are no traces of flour. (Do not overmix; it’s okay if there are a few small lumps.)
  4. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the blueberries and then the streusel over the top. Place the cake, uncovered, on the trivet in the pot. Lock on the lid, select the PRESSURE COOK function, and adjust to HIGH pressure for 40 minutes. Make sure the steam valve is in the “Sealing” position.
  5. When the cooking time is up, quick-release the pressure. Test the cake with a butter knife; it should come out mostly clean with a few moist crumbs when inserted in the center of the cake. The top of the cake may look a bit moist; this is fine. Remove the pan from the Instant Pot with tongs. Run a sharp knife around the sides of the pan, then unlock and release the sides of the pan. Let the cake stand for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
Recipe Notes

Tasty Tip: If you have it handy, add 1 1/2 teaspoons; vanilla extract to the cake batter for a
richer flavor.

    Was ok enough. Even with with the vanilla it was a little dry but ig worked. If anything it didnt rise as much as pictured.

    This did not come out cake-like at all. It was dense, chewy, and gummy. The flavor was just okay though I didn’t see the bit about vanilla until it was too late. I won’t be making this again and am now wary of putting a cake in a steam environment.

    Made this a couple weeks ago. Very easy to make. Both me and my husband loved it. Very tasty and not too sweet!

    Came out moist and dense. Was good but more like blueberry pancake tadte than coffee cake. Suppose this is due to Bisquick.

    Made this as part of our little two person Mardi Gras. Turned out great. Was not as dense as I expected based on other reviews. An enjoyable coffee cake. Will definitely make again.

    Adding vanilla is a suggestion and not included in the main recipe. It suggests to use 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

    Didn’t see the part about the vanilla until it was too late. Not sure it would have made a differece though. Topping is good but the rest is very dry.
