Hello there! Today is the first of September and I have already been harvesting the season. I typically get excited the last week in August and never can wait until September to start fluffing the house for fall and baking up some fall treats. Today I am sharing a pumpkin spice cake in the Instant Pot.
The other day when I shared my pumpkin spice cake bites, I told you I only used half the cake mix for that batch. The other half of the cake mix I used to make a pumpkin cake. The neighbors down the street have gifted the cake. With two boys in their household, I knew it would be a hit with them. Apparently, it was a hit with the whole family because I received a text message of an empty plate and they wanted to know the recipe:). I only give my little secrets away to y’all: Egg Bites mold, for use with 5, 6Qt. and up Instant Pot.
Pumpkin Cake Bites
One cake mix will make 7 cake bites in the egg bite molds, and a mini cake that can serve 4 comfortably. Both make for a huge party hit with both kids and adults alike.
I used my 3 Qt. Instant Pot to make the cake, although you can use any size pot you have and the directions remain the same. To make the cake bites I used my 6 Qt. Instant Pot.
The same goes for using the egg bite molds to make cake bites.
When your cake is cool, it is ready to flip and decorate. I used green cupcake frosting found in a spray can found in the baked goods section of the grocery store (not far from the cake mixes) with different nozzles to change your design. I then added some pretty colorful sprinkles and added a cinnamon stick in the middle to resemble a pumpkin stem.
I had two magnificent, fun, and festive party treats in less than 30 minutes.
