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!

Gluten-Free French Apple Cake Recipe:
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
This French Apple Cake, adapted from Cook’s Illustrated, has a rich custardy bottom, a light cake layer and a crisp sugary topping. Serve it warm, or at room temperature–either way with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
1 1/2 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 8 wedges, and sliced 1/8 inch thick crosswise
1 tablespoon brandy
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3/4 cup PLUS 2 tablespoons all-purpose gluten-free flour blend (love Pamela’s: https://amzn.to/2tHeb2s )
1/4 cup almond flour OR hazelnut flour
1 cup, plus 2 tablespoons organic granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum, (omit if your flour blend already contains it)
1 big egg PLUS 2 big yolks
1 cup canola oil OR coconut oil
1 cup whole milk, or dairy free milk of your choosing
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
put the oven rack in the lower third of the oven and set the temperature to 325 degrees. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with gluten-free cooking spray and put on a foil lined, rimed baking sheet.
put apple slices on a microwave safe plate or pie dish, cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes, or until apples are slightly tender and pliable (we actually skip this step in the video, and the cake is still perfect!) Drizzle with brandy and lemon juice and let cool for 15 minutes.
put 3/4 cup of gluten-free flour blend, almond flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder, salt and xanthan gum in a big mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Add one egg, oil, milk and vanilla extract and whisk until smooth. Scoop out one cup of the batter and put in another medium bowl.
Add egg yolks to the larger portion of the batter and whisk to combine. Fold in the cooled apple slices and pour mixture into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with an offset (or rubber) spatula.
Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons of gluten-free flour blend into the remaining batter and smooth batter evenly over the apple mixture in the pan, taking care to spread it all the way to the edges.
Sprinkle the top with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and bake until the center of the cake is set, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Transfer pan to a wire rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the cake along the sides of the pan and let cool completely, about 2 hours more (if you can). cut into wedges and serve.
