Instructions
  1. Generously butter the bottom and sides of TWO 6 inch or 7 inch cake pans.
  2. Sprinkle half the brown sugar over the bottom of each pan.
  3. Arrange pineapple slices and halved maraschino cherries on the bottom of the pan.
  4. Mix cake according to package directions, then carefully spoon half the batter into each pan.
  5. If using regular cake pans, cover each with foil--you will need to cook each cake separately. Use a foil sling to make it easier to remove the pan after cooking. If using stackable pans, stack and cover using the sealing (non-perforated) lid and close the interlocking handle.
  6. Place 1.5 cups of water and the trivet in the bottom of the Instant Pot. Carefully lower the pan(s) onto the trivet, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  7. Using the display panel select the MANUAL function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 18 minutes.
  8. When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release until the pin drops on its own.
  9. Remove cake(s), uncover and set on a cooling rack for 10-15 minutes.
  10. Turn cake onto a plate for serving.

    I made it in the 8QT pot. The brown sugar need to be doubled. The cake came out like pound cake. It was good , but needs some adjusting.

    I tried this recipe it’s good. I used duncan hines pineapple supreme cake mix. I have a 6qt instapot. I bought cake pans for instapot at bed,bath and beyond. I put foil
    cover on the pan and set on trivet. I did not make a foil sling. It took awhile for pin to drop, when it did I tested cake with toothpick, put it in oven at 350 degrees for about 5 mins. It looks delicious and tasted great, very moist.
