Ingredients
  • 1 Boxed Cake Mix (15.25 oz)*
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips (optional)
  • Frosting of your choice
Steps
  1. *Prepare the Cake Mix following the directions on the box.
  2. Add in optional chocolate chips if using.
  3. Divide batter into 2 bowls.
  4. Spray a 7" pan with non-stick spray (I used a spring form pan)
  5. Pour half the batter into the pan.
  6. Loosely cover pan with foil.
  7. Place trivet & 1 cup of water into Instant Pot.
  8. Lower cake into pot using a foil sling.
  9. Put on lid & seal vent; Cook on Manual/High for 30 minutes.
  10. Do a 15 minute Natural Pressure Release, then release any remaining pressure.
  11. Check cake with toothpick to make sure it's done. (cook a few more minutes if needed)
  12. Remove cake from pot & let cool on wire rack for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
  13. Repeat with remaining cake batter.
  14. Frost cake as desired.
Notes
  • *Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the box. Most box mixes call for eggs, vegetable oil & water, but the amounts may vary. 
  • I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme Devils Food Cake Mix (it has pudding in the mix) 
  • I used this recipe for Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting (added extra cinnamon): 
  • You can make this as 2 small separate cakes or as a layer cake. 
  • *I've also made this in a 6 cup bundt pan using all of the cake batter at once. I increased the cook time to 40 mins. The cake rose a little over the top of the pan when cooked so it didn't really have a flat bottom when plated, but it cooked just fine.
