Instant Pot Box Cake

I love chocolate. I have to say I am a true chocoholic. This Instant Pot Box Cake is simply perfection. I love how easy it is to make and whenever I make it for guests, they can not stop raving about it.

Ingredients

  • Triple chocolate cake mix- Using a cake mix saves time but you can use your favorite chocolate cake recipe too.
  • Eggs- Use room temperature eggs
  • Water- This is the water that the cake mix calls for
  • Oil- You can use vegetable or canola
  • Semi sweet chocolate chips- You can also use milk chocolate chips too.
  • Heavy whipping cream- This is used for making the ganache
  • Mini chocolate chips- These are used for decoration.

How to Make a Box Cake in an Instant Pot

Mix the cake mix and the cake ingredients together in a large bowl.

Prepare a 7 inch bundt pan.

Fill the pan 3/4 of the way full.

Place 1 cup of water inside the Instant Pot and then place the trivet inside.

Make a sling for the pan and then lower it into the Instant Pot.

Close the lid and set the pressure time for 35 minutes.

Allow for a quick release.

Let the cake cool on a cooling rack for 30 to 60 minutes.

Make the ganache by heating heaving cream until it is slightly boiling.

Place the chocolate chips in a heat safe bowl and let it sit for a minute.

Whisk it together and then pour it over the cake.

Sprinkle some chocolate chips over the cake.
