Weight Watchers Pumpkin Banana cake in the Instant Pot
Consider me your guinea pig! I have said this before and I continue to mention that I am your official try it, let’s see if we like it go to gal. Grant you, we all have different food tastes, so everything I try here won’t be your thing. We are variety eaters and I don’t consider us fussy. Therefore you will get a variety of cuisine here. Today I am sharing a weight watchers pumpkin banana cake in the Instant Pot. I sure was skeptical on this cake. No eggs, no oil, no butter. Hmmmm??
I have made weight watcher pumpkin muffins before in the oven. They were great. The Instant Pot is a whole new method though of cooking and I was not sure on this recipe. I decided what the heck, let’s give it a go. I am trying to make healthier choices when cooking and my fall back is always weight watchers. If you missed my cauliflower smashed you can check those out after this amazing pumpkin banana cake.
The chocolate chips are optional. They do add a few more calories, but not many considering I only added 1/4 cup of morsels. I literally had one morsel in my sliver:) But that’s ok, it was just right. For this recipe I actually used fresh pumpkin puree. I had one pumpkin left after I made my home made pumpkin soup. I didn’t want it to go to waste. You can absolutely use canned pumpkin puree for this recipe. If you want to do fresh, by all means. You can see how I made my pumpkin in the Instant Pot HERE.
The cake was high, dense, and so moist. I LOVE DUNCAN HINES. Yes, that was all in caps because I was hollering how much I love that brand of cake mixes.
This was when I was letting it cool. I always release the spring and remove about 10 minutes after the cake is out of the pot. I do not flip it until it is completely cooled.
Weight Watchers Pumpkin Banana bread recipe
1 ripe Banana, 2 cups Pumpkin Puree,
1/3 cup water, 1 yellow Duncan Hines Cake mix, cinnamon
In a large mixing bowl add pumpkin puree, banana, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. First hand mix and break up the banana well. Take an electric mixer and beat for at least 2 minutes. Add in 1/3 cup of water and 1/4 chocolate chips (optional). Add cake mix and mix all together.
Prepare 7 inch bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add 1 cup of water to your Pressure cooker. Add mix to your pan being sure to spread evenly around. Batter is thicker than usual. Place cake pan on top of trivet, and place in pot. Set to High Pressure manual for 35 minutes. Quick release. Remove cake out of pot and let cool for 10 minutes before releasing spring form. Let cool an additional 15-20 minutes and flip cake over. DELISH!~ Guilt free.
