This my friends is a pucker upper, lip smacker, face wiper, gone in no time recipe. Today I am sharing how to make a pound cake Pressure Cooker Method.

How to Make a Pound Cake – Pressure Cooker Method.

I honestly think this is truly the way pound cake is meant to be made. Here’s the thing. If you have Ninja Foodi you have the option of browning it up at the end. I did not do that however, you have that option. This method and the recipe can be used in any pressure cooker just the same.

All you need is one box of Krusteaz Lemon Meyer pound cake mix, a pan, and about 30 minutes later be ready to put on your bib. You can tuck your napkin inside your shirt like my dear ole’ Gramps used to do HA!

If you don’t have the flower pan yet, I highly recommend this pretty little pan. It is a 3 cup pan, but you would be surprised at how high and delicious, not to mention beautiful your cakes, and even meatloaf turns out. You can find my meatloaf recipe using this pan.

I cheated. Well worth the cheat. No eggs needed. There is a stick of butter in this recipe though. It actually called for ten tablespoons, and a stick of butter equals eight. That is all I did, and instead, I added a tad more water to the mix. You can follow the box directions as is if you prefer. It will turn out the same way, I have no doubt.

The lemon pound cake was so moist. My husband had a hard time not eating the whole cake. I had a few little flower pedals. You don’t feel as guilty eating one little pedal at a time. I love that the mix even comes with the icing mix.
