Instructions
  1. Generously coat a 3-cup fluted tube pan with baking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan melt the chocolate over low heat. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a small bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl beat the butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar and beat on medium for 1 to 2 minutes or until well combined.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla.
  6. Add flour mixture and beat just until combined. Transfer half of the batter (about 1 cup) to a small bowl; stir in the melted chocolate.
  7. Stir peanut butter into the remaining batter. Alternately drop spoonfuls of chocolate and peanut butter batters into the prepared pan.
  8. Using a table knife, gently cut through batters to swirl them together (do not overmix).
  9. Place the trivet in the Instant Pot. Add 1 cup of water to pot. Place the cake pan on the trivet. Secure the lid on the pot.
  10. Close the pressure-release valve. Select Manual and cook at high pressure for 25 minutes. When cooking is complete, use a quick release to depressurize.
  11. Carefully remove the cake from the pot. Let the cake cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove cake from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.
  12. Drizzle with Ganache or Peanut Butter Glaze. If using Peanut Butter Glaze, sprinkle with peanuts if desired.
