Ingredients

for the Cake

  • 1/2 cup strawberry spreadable fruit I prefer Smuckers Simply Fruit
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup strawberry cake mix I prefer Pillsbury Moist Supreme Strawberry
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

for the Glaze

  • 1/2 cup confectioners powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp water

Instructions

making the Cake

  • Add the strawberry spreadable fruit, heavy whipping cream and egg to a mixing bowl and mix together thoroughly with a whisk.
  • Fold the strawberry cake mix and baking powder into the wet ingredients with a spatula. Make sure to use ONLY 1 CUP of cake mix and do not use a whisk or an electric mixer for this part. Be careful not to over mix. You want the batter to remain somewhat lumpy.
  • Spray a small 6" x 2" cake pan or 3 cup bundt pan with the cooking spray and pour the cake batter into the pan.
  • Tightly cover the cake pan with aluminum foil.
  • Add 2 cups of water to the Instant Pot and place the cake pan in the Instant Pot on the trivet.
  • Set the Instant Pot on 'Manual' or 'Pressure Cook', High Pressure for 40 minutes.
  • Once the cook time has completed, allow for a 15 minute NPR (natural pressure release).
  • After the pressure has been released and the pin has dropped, open the pot and carefully remove the cake from the pot.
  • Remove the foil from the cake pan, then place the cake on a cooling rack and allow the cake to cool.
  • After the cake has cooled, pour the glaze over the top of the cake to fully cover.

making the Glaze

  • Sift the 1/2 cup of confectioners powdered sugar into a mixing bowl, add the tablespoon of heavy whipping cream and tablespoon of water and mix until the sugar is fully dissolved.
