Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, butter, water, eggs, and sugar. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients until well-combined.
  2. Spread shortening or butter in the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of the Instant Pot® and pour in the batter. Place lid on pot and lock into place to seal. Cook on Low Pressure for 40 minutes. (If your Instant Pot® has a Cake setting, use that instead of Low Pressure.) Let sit for 10 minutes. Use Quick Pressure Release.
  3. To remove pancake, run a rubber spatula around the edge of the pancake. and quickly invert onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges and serve with toppings, of choice.
Recipe Notes

Variation: For a super quick version of this recipe, use 3 cups of prepared batter from an instant pancake mix. Melt 2 tablespoons butter and stir into batter; proceed with the recipe, starting with the second paragraph.

    Can I also do this using a baking pan on a trivet INSTEAD of right in the Instant Pot? If so, how much water on the bottom of pot & how long to cook it? Thank you:)

    I used bisquick instead of pancake mix and got a burn notice just minutes into the process with the cake setting. Tried scraping the cooked cake off the bottom and using the manual low pressure since the cake setting was high pressure. Got the burn notice again 🙁

    Hi Sheilagh,

    We are sorry to hear that you got the burn notice.

    This recipe is difficult, one reason is that even though Bisquick is similar to pancake mix it is not exactly the same. That could have caused the initial issue.

    Unfortunately changing the cooking program doesnt correct burn notices. Burn Notice relies on a sensor that determines if there is a potential to burn.

    You will have to correct what is causing the tripping of the burn sensor.

    Typically it is food sticking to the base of the inner pot. I would use nonstick spray to ensure the pancake batter doesn’t stick to the bottom.

    We have a blog post that explains the burn notice in detail.

    I tried to do it but i got the burn notice and couldn’t figure out how to get rid of it. In the end I did it with the rice option but it was a bit mushy on the inside .. edible, but not fluffy as a cake.

    What a disaster. Burn notice after multiple attempts – following the recipe like a chemist… following all the website tips to avoid burn notice.

    Same thing for me, will try in a pan if i do it again. So took the hslf baked batter out put on a cookie sheet with butter, cinnsmon and sugar and made a crumble.

    Used a buttermilk substitute (milk and vinegar) and did not turn out. Used cake setting also. Stuck to bottom so did not use enough butter either. Will try again with real buttermilk and more butter;)

    Tried this recipe with the nonstick spray, still burnt to the bottom and wouldn’t finish cooking. Very disappointing

    I made this in my Duo60 using a pancake mix recipe. I had to use the Multigrain setting as i kept getting the Burn notice otherwise.

    The first time I made it I used too much flour and got the “food burn” error. No biggie, thay was on me.

    The second time I made the batter correctly and used a little extra shortening to grease the pan. I still received the food burn error.

    I’m disappointed that this one didn’t work out.

    I tried this today using Aunt Jamima pancake mix.
    I added the butter as suggested but substituted some cream for a portion of the water that was required. It stuck pretty bad to the bottom of the pot and seemed slightly under cooked.
    It was hard to get out of the pot but once I did I ate half of it and it was pretty good.
    Perhaps adding the cream caused it to stick more, and using Pam cooking spray instead of the butter on the pot inside would have yielded a better result.
    I think this a is a recipe which requires fine tuning and multiple attempts, which in reality is sometimes the essence of cooking anyways.

    added cinnamon & vanilla, didnt use all butter at end, it stuck but finished the cycle on cake.bottom was dark brown vs picture. cake itself was a little mushy vs a pancake. We treated this as a mega thick crepe smoothered with ice Cream & longonberry fig preserves

    This would be better if it was a cake recipe since you don’t have any plain cake recipes on your site . TRY THIS RECIPE IN A PAN IT WILL TURN OUT MUCH BETTER

    Recipe does not work at all. Cook for 5 mins and you get a burn warning. Why put the recipe on the app if it has issues without warning anyone. Only reason i found out there are issues was from the reviews after i tried to make it. Its called a disclaimer please use it
