Spice pumpkin cake in the Instant Pot
Hello there! Today is the first of September and I have already been harvesting the season. I typically get excited the last week in August and never can wait until September to start fluffing the house for fall and baking up some fall treats. Today I am sharing a spice pumpkin cake in the Instant Pot.
The other day when I shared my pumpkin spice cake bites HERE, I told you I only used half the cake mix for that batch. The other half of the cake mix I used to make a pumpkin cake. The neighbors down the street were gifted the cake. With two boys in their household I knew it would be a hit with them. Apparently, it was a hit with the whole family because I received a text message of an empty plate and they wanted to know the recipe:). I only give my little secrets away to y’all. Egg bite mold HERE, for use with 5, 6Qt. and up Instant Pot.
One cake mix will make 7 cake bites in the egg bite molds, and a mini cake that can serve 4 comfortably. Both make for a huge party hit with both kids and adults alike.
I used my 3 Qt. Instant Pot to make the cake, although you can use any size pot you have and the directions remain the same. DO NOT cover your cakes with foil. This will change cook time. If you have slight moisture on top after cooking, simply blot with a paper towel and let cake cool. To make the cake bites I used my 6 Qt. Instant Pot.
Same goes for using the egg bite molds to make cake bites. NO need to cover with foil.
When your cake is cool, it is ready to flip and decorate. I used green cupcake frosting found in a spray can found in the bake goods section of the grocery store (not far from the cake mixes) with different nozzles to change your design. I then added some pretty colorful sprinkles and added a cinnamon stick in the middle to resemble a pumpkin stem.
I had two magnificent, fun and festive party treats in less than 30 minutes.
