Hello there friends! Welcome to Home Pressure Cooking. If this is your first visit here today, you are in for a treat. I make lots of treats and desserts in the Instant Pot, but this one is a first for me. Today I am sharing how to make a German Apple Kuchen in the Pressure Cooker.

Perfect for Mother’s Day

This past Mother’s day was even more special. My Mother-in-law was in town, and our older boy home from his recent graduation from college. It was like the good ole days of the family all being together. I was telling my Mother-in-law how we made Rouladen in the Instant Pot. She suggested we try her quick version of German Apple Kuchen in the Pressure Cooker. Of course, I obliged.

For this recipe, you only need a few ingredients and a 7-inch Springform pan, a small can of cinnamon rolls, a large apple, golden raisins, and walnuts (optional).

There are so many great recipes you can make using a 7-inch springform pan. Check out my personal recipe gallery HERE

My mother-in-law didn’t measure the walnuts or raisins. It was basically as seen, one good handful spread on top of the cinnamon rolls.

I was in the moment of enjoying the family and didn’t really take my time to take great photos. Don’t let that deter you, I assure you it was amazing and gone in about 5 minutes! This was our second dessert btw:)

Served warm with the icing on top, you couldn’t resist. I wish we would have made two.

Hope you enjoy this!

  • 1 can of Cinnamon rolls (NOT the grand size)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 large Red apple


  • First prepare a 7' inch Spring form pan with parchment paper on the bottom and a little spray butter on the bottom of the pan.
  • Un roll the cinnamon rolls, and layer the bottom of the pan. The whole can will fit in one layer on the bottom. Just be sure to tuck, and pinch together to be sure they all fit in one layer.
  • Add raisins in between the layer. Add apples, and walnuts on top
  • Add one cup of water to the Pressure Cooker. Set pan on a trivet rack and lower down into the pot. Set pot on High Pressure for 15 minutes. Do a quick release.
  • If you have the Nina Foodi, this is where you can bake the walnuts to get toasty and brown. Lower down the crisper lid, set on Bake 390 for approx. 5 minutes. Be sure to check it is not burning on top. Remove the pan and add the icing on while warm. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
