Make a cake in the 3 Qt. Mini Instant Pot

Make a cake in the 3 Qt. Mini Instant Pot

Good day everyone! Welcome to Home Pressure Cooking. This was a first for me to try a Jiffy yellow cake mix in the Instant Pot. I have made a bazillion cakes using Duncan Hines, Martha White mixes and even Betty Crocker on occasion. I enjoy Jiffy cornbread mixes a lot, so I figured for less than a buck why not try the yellow cake mix.

This mini cake was so simple and delicious, Jiffy yellow cake mixes will be my go to when using my mini flower pan HERE.

9 0z. is simply perfect for the pan. Typically I would use half a Duncan Hines cake mix at a time and make two. The Martha White mixes, along with Betty Crocker fit perfectly in the mini flower pan as well. The pan is a 3 cup pan, so portion control is quite simple and you can easily have a slice for 4-6 people. Who needs more cake than that? Well….we won’t go there. Just make two is my recommendation. They are so pretty displayed on a table for the holidays.

When using this pan in the 3 Qt. Mini, I have a home made foil sling I use to set the pan on the trivet. That pot did not come with a trivet with a handle. I have so many accessories I figured why by a trivet with a handle just for that pot when I have other trivets that fit the bigger pots. It’s really not that big a deal for the mini. The 3 Qt. Mini is my favorite pot of all. You can check out why I love my 3 Qt. Mini Instant Pot post HERE.

This is what the cake looks like when you remove it from the pot. I do NOT cover my cakes, and never have found it necessary too. I think it makes cook time off, and they don’t bake evenly. Just my personal opinion.

I topped my mini cake with fried apples, drizzled some of the juice from the can on top, added crushed walnuts, and just a dash of cinnamon. How cute and lovely on my fall diy dollar tree cake stand you can find HERE.
