You’ve probably heard of theInstant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.
Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!
Watch how to make a cake in the instant pot to see how I make a cake mix cake tastes love a cake made from scratch.
Boxed Cake Mix that Tastes love It’s Made from Scratch
1 Cake mix
2 sticks of melted unsalted butter
1 cup of milk
Mix the above ingredients in your mixer and put the batter in your pre-greased and floured 2 tier steam pans. Now put your steam pans inside your instant pot for 30 minutes on manual high and allow a natural release (approximately 30 to 33 minutes). make sure you have 1 to 2 cups of water inside the liner pan of your instant pot. (I put 2 cups of water in and turn my instant pot on manual high at 30 minutes and allow the pot to begin getting hot while I am preparing the cake batter. It doesn’t take as long to come to pressure this way.)
Chocolate Peppermint Icing:
4 cups powdered sugar
½ cup of Hershey’s Dark Chocolate/Hersheys Cocoa (I use ½ of each to make up ½ cup)
2 sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature
½ tsp vanilla
a few drops (6 or 7) of Peppermint Oil (make sure is pure enough to ingest)
6 tbsp of boiling water
Mix altogether. Allow it to cool for 15 minutes. make sure the cake is nice and cool before placing icing on the cake.
For a big cake you can double the recipe.
My Chocolate Icing thought is from Cookies and Cups.com (I tweaked it a little)
