How to make Brownies in your Instant Pot
1 box Brownie mix of choiceI used Ghirardelli triple chocolate
1 cup water
It was a bright beautiful Saturday morning! I have had this wonderful brownie mix in our pantry for a few weeks now, just staring at me every time I opened the door. I thought to myself “You know chocolate is somewhat healthy for you, why can’t I make these for breakfast?” Well, I looked around an no one was stopping me!~
I thought this would be a good experiment in my Instant Pot. Today I am sharing how to make brownies in your Instant Pot. I did learn something a long the way for next time.
Next time I would definitly add two eggs instead of one. Typically for a fluffier brownie you do want two eggs. I thought I would try to get away with one. Don’t get me wrong, there was absolutely nothing wrong with them. I just happen to like a fluffier brownie. Your call on what you like.
These brownies were quite decadent. Let’s just say, I woke up real fast with a a brownie and my morning coffee. Certainly jumped started my day. I have made cakes before in my Instant Pot, but never brownies. You can check out my last cake I made HERE.
They were triple fudge after all:)
Just a little more fluffier would have made my day even better. But that’s ok, I learned for next time. Like the Spring form pan? You can find it on Amazon HERE
Pin it, make it!
Enjoy! Hope to see you back again. See recipe down below.

Add one cup of water in the bottom of your pot and set to normal saute while you are preparing your brownie mix. This will ensure a faster way to get your pot up to pressure once you put your brownies in the pot.
Per the usual box instructions mix your brownies accordingly.
NOTES: As mentioned if you want fluffier, add the extra egg.
Lightly spray your 7' inch Spring form pan. I used my custom pan with the Bundt portion in.
Pour the entire batter in the pan being sure the batter is evenly spread. I always like to secure a little tin foil on the bottom of my pan creating a little lip just to be on the safe side in case of any leakage. It can happen and if in the case it does, you will not have a mess in your pot.
Place your pan on a trivet or home made tin foil sleeve with handles to you can lower your pan in the pot with ease.
Lightly cover your pan with foil in order to avoid moisture and water dripping on the brownies. You can always blot off any excess once finished.
Always add a cup of water to the pot.
Close the lid and set on seal. Set your pot to Manual High Pressure for 35 minutes.
Once finished do a Quick release to get the rest of the pressure out of the pot before opening the lid. (I always unplug when I do this part)
Remove pan and let cool. You can then release the spring and flip over your cake if you have the bundt portion.
If not simply cut, sprinkle with powdered sugar and nuts if you so desire.
